About this event

This talk will discuss the business case for investment in renewable energy at Severn Trent Water, building on a strong heritage of energy generation to take advantage of emerging technical and commercial opportunities.

Every year in the UK several million tonnes of waste food from households, supermarkets and restaurants is thrown away and a proportion of this ends up going to landfill or travelling a number of miles to other treatment facilities.

Severn Trent are capturing some of this food waste locally to generate green renewable energy which will reduce carbon emissions as well as reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill in our region. The Coleshill food recycling centre has the capacity to recycle 48,500tonnes of food waste per year and produces 18000 MWh of green renewable energy a year.


Peter Ravenscroft is a Chartered Civil Engineer with over 25 years experience drawn from key roles in Water, Rail and Retail industries. He is responsible for the delivery of renewable energy investment at Severn Trent Water.
