Sector Specialist – Communities

Caroline Bosher & Fiona Green

At Pubs for the Planet we champion the best eco-friendly pubs, breweries, distilleries and vineyards across the UK.

Our clients want to operate in the most environmentally-friendly way possible while benefiting from reduced costs, so we introduce them to BACB Renewables when they are ready to explore sustainable energy options.

This can be solar panels on a pub roof with associated battery storage, wind turbines powering a distillery, heat pumps in lieu of a traditional boiler at a winery, or an anaerobic digestion system to create energy to power a brewery using their own bio-waste.

Sector Specialist – Food & Drink
