A-grade success for energy-efficient Swansea Market

Swansea Market

Swansea Market has secured the highest possible UK Government energy rating.

Its grade A rating confirms that the city centre venue is amongst those buildings that have the lowest carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

Recent years has seen Swansea Council work hard with staff, stallholders and shoppers to bring emissions down.

The new official energy certificate is now on display at the market.

Robert Francis-Davies, the council’s cabinet member for investment, regeneration and tourism, said: “This is excellent news from the market which is at the heart of our £1bn regeneration programme.”

Andrea Lewis, the council’s joint deputy leader and cabinet member for climate change and service transformation, said: “The council is doing all it can to help fix the problems of climate change.”

A building’s energy performance operational rating is based on its CO2 emissions for the past year.

It’s given a rating on a scale from A (lowest emissions) to G (highest emissions).
