Warranty Direct
Warranty Direct has been providing industry-leading extended car warranties direct to the consumer since 1997. An extended warranty can be purchased as the conventional manufacturers warranty expires or at any time after that, as long as the car remains under 10 years old with less than 100,000 recorded miles since new. Available for most cars, Performance & Prestige now offers cover for the more exotic, including the likes of Ferrari and Bentley.

Warranty Direct has been the innovator in the sector for many years, being the first to introduce cover for: wear & tear failure; consequential damage and faults found at service and MoT. Claims are handled at the same UK-based offices that sells and administers policies to ensure a trouble free service delivery and policies are fully insured to provide further peace of mind. Warranty Direct has supported the What Car? Green Awards since launch and the green car warranty can be found at www.greenwarranty.co.uk

EDF Energy
EDF Energy is actively supporting the development of electric vehicles. Low-carbon electricity is important in itself, but also because it can help reduce the carbon emissions of other activities, including transport and heating.

EDF Energy is one of the UKs largest energy companies and its largest producer of low-carbon electricity, producing around one-fifth of the nation's electricity from its nuclear, coal and gas power stations, as well as combined heat and power plants and wind farms. The company supplies gas and electricity to more than 5.5 million business and residential customers and is the biggest supplier of electricity by volume in the UK.

EDF Energys safe and secure operation of its eight existing nuclear power stations at sites across the country makes it the UKs largest generator of low carbon electricity. EDF Energy is also leading the UK's nuclear renaissance and has published plans to build four new nuclear plants, subject to the right investment framework. These new plants could generate enough low carbon electricity for about 40% of Britains homes. They would make an important contribution to the UKs future needs for clean, secure and affordable energy. The project is already creating business and job opportunities for British companies and workers.

Through Our Sustainability Commitments, EDF Energy has launched one of the biggest environmental and social programmes of any British energy company. EDF is the official energy utilities partner and sustainability partner of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The company is also helping its customers and others use energy more sustainably through products and initiatives such as Team Green Britain, smart meters and electric vehicle research.

EDF Energy is part of EDF Group, one of Europes largest power companies. The company employs around 15,000 people at locations across the UK.

AGT Investments, a leading provider in the carbon-offset market, is a co-sponsor of the awards and will offset the carbon emissions of not only the event itself, but all journeys to and from the awards taken by guests, participants and sponsors.
