Renewables sector prepares to celebrate the industry’s premier event of the year

The British Renewable Energy Awards, organised by the Renewable Energy Association, were inaugurated in 2006 to celebrate outstanding achievements in the British renewable energy sector across all technologies and resources. Over the past five years, the Awards have become one of the most prestigious events in the industry’s calendar.

This year, the Awards will be presented at a gala dinner at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower in Kensington on Thursday, 16th June 2011. We delighted to announce that we have secured an extremely exciting top panel of judges this year, and welcome Peter Ainsworth as Chair of the Judges.  Peter himself was winner of both the PRASEG and the CIWM Parliamentarian of the Year Award, 2009. The 2011 judging panel includes;
  • TV presenter and geologist, Professor Iain Stewart
  • BBC broadcaster, Tom Heap
  • Met Office's Head of Climate Change Advice, Dr Vicky Pope
  • Guardian Environment Editor, Damian Carrington 

The creativity and ingenuity of the UK renewables industry ensures there are a wealth of companies and individuals who have achieved something outstanding during 2010 so please let your customers, members, partners and stakeholders know that pre-nominations for the Awards are now open.

REA’s Chief Executive, Gaynor Hartnell, commented;

“These Awards recognise outstanding achievement in the British renewable energy sector. They are a tribute to innovation and excellence. The exceptional quality of all those that are short listed serves to demonstrate the exacting standards, talent and originality within this industry.”

Awards categories include the Champion Award, which could be an organisation or an individual that has helped advance renewable energy through a campaign, a highly influential report or other means.  And, this year, it includes a Community Award - we hope there are going to be many exciting community schemes nominated, especially given the Feed–in Tariffs scheme and forthcoming Renewable Heat Incentive.
