Adam Black joined Lanchester Wines in 2012 with the ambition to carbon-neutralise the specific element of the wine supply chain for both Lanchester Wines and sister business, Greencroft Bottling. Working with the business owners, Black developed a programme of renewable energy and heat generation initiatives designed around natural, sustainable resources available at the business’ locations across the North East of England. These span wind, solar, air and geothermal technologies.
Adam has had a passion for renewable energy since buying a 300W wind turbine back in the late 1980’s. Projects got more comprehensive as time moved on and in 2000 he connected the first domestic PV generation to the grid in the North East region. Adam has a BSc in Agriculture from Newcastle University.
