24/06/2011: Energy Innovation Awards 2011
Electricity North West was proud to be involved in the second Annual Energy Innovation Awards last night, held at the Hilton Hotel in Manchester.
The event was held to recognise individuals and companies flying the flag for energy innovation and sustainability, attracting businesses from across the UK and Europe, with entries up 34% on last year’s inaugural awards.
As a sponsor at the event, we were able to witness awards for a range of categories including Consumer Benefit, Best International Trade and New Energy Generation as well as applaud the Rising Star recipient and the Energy Innovation Grand Prix Award.
Mike Kay, Electricity North West’s network strategy director said: “Energy demand is set to increase massively over the next few decades and so it’s incredibly valuable to recognise those that are innovating in this field. Our congratulations go to all the winners and runners up.”
The awards, the brainchild of Cheshire’s world-class Energy Innovation Centre, received praise from Greg Barker MP, Minister of State for Energy and Climate Change, who sent his congratulations to all of those who had worked to make the awards such a success, and particularly commended the winners.
