The deadline for applications is Friday 26 April 2019 and the shortlist will be announced on Friday 17 May 2019.
Winners will be revealed at the awards ceremony at the Grange St Paul’s Hotel on Thursday 13 June 2019, which last year was attended by around 300 people.
Paul Lowbridge, Chair of the Young Energy Professionals Forum said:
“The YEP Awards is our flagship annual event for showcasing the achievements of talented young professionals working in and close to energy organisations. It gives an opportunity for these organisations to showcase the great work their employees do at a high-profile industry event.”
Abbie Sampson, Director of External Affairs at Energy UK said:
“This is a fantastic event to recognise the young energy professionals and students that are making an outstanding contribution and shaping the future of the energy industry.
“Each year it is encouraging to see the broad, diverse range of talent within the industry and we are delighted to be launching two new award categories this year, including for diversity and inclusion. I wish all applicants the best of luck and look forward to celebrating their outstanding contribution to the energy sector in June.”
