Minesto joins Buckingham Palace celebrations of Charles' 50th Prince of Wales anniversary

March 06, 2019

Yesterday, Welsh charities, organisations and businesses were celebrated at a reception hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace. The event marked 50 years since Charles’ investiture as the Prince of Wales and Minesto was invited to the reception through the Welsh Government.

Among the 200 guests at the event honouring Prince Charles's contribution to Wales were members of the Royal Family, Prime Minister Theresa May, politicians, business leaders, musicians, artists and celebrities.

An avid promoter of sustainable solutions, the Prince of Wales has previously been introduced to Minesto’s technology for converting kinetic energy in marine currents to predictable, green electricity.

“We were honoured to be invited to the anniversary of the Prince of Wales’ investiture and it’s very positive that the First Minister of Wales Mark Drakeford and the Welsh Government chooses to highlight the Welsh marine energy sector at a high-profile event such as this”, said Dr Martin Edlund, CEO of Minesto.
