We’re delighted to share that The Bottle Yard Studios is shortlisted in the Sustainable Initiative category of the inaugural Global Production Awards 2023, for our innovative TBY2 1MWp Solar Rooftop Array project, delivered with Bristol Energy Cooperative and Bristol City Council Energy Services.

Presented by Screen International, the Global Production Awards celebrate outstanding and sustainable work in the field of film and TV production, locations and studios. Among those shortlisted are studios, production companies, film commissions, location, suppliers and manufacturers and any services involved in film and TV production across the world.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at Cannes Film Festival on May 22, 2023. Read more about the awards here.

TBY2 is powered by what we believe to be the biggest community-owned solar rooftop array in the UK, consisting of more than 2.300 PV panels. We believe it is also the largest rooftop PV array in the UK studios sector.

Over time, surplus energy it produces will benefit other buildings in the city of Bristol, thanks to it being part of Bristol’s innovative City Leap initiative. Read more here.

The array was funded by a Bristol Energy Cooperative share offer. Check out BEC’s latest film to find out more about why this unique sustainability project is so exciting – for the film/TV industry, for the community energy movement and for the city of Bristol!
