Awel Aman Tawe is a community energy project working to make a difference to the lives of people at the top of the Swansea and Amman Valleys. It aims to bring clean electricity, jobs and regeneration to the villages near the Mynydd y Gwrhyd.

AAT is embedded in the community, its small staff and active volunteer group live in the area, and it is committed to protecting the outstanding natural environment of the neighbourhood. It works to raise awareness of the importance of clean energy in the fight against the threat of climate change through a sustained programme of information, communication and consultation and, more recently, through an innovative range of arts activities related to climate change that often reach people at a deeper level. The quality of its work has been recognised nationally and internationally by a growing number of prestigious awards.
