The voice of the energy industry

Shining a light on Energy Industry Stars

With the energy sector transforming to a future system that will be unrecognisable from today’s, Energy UK is recognising the efforts of individual energy companies who are not just embracing change, but leading it.

In celebration of achievements within the sector, this year our Members’ Annual Lunch will feature - for the first time - the presentation of three awards, judged by the Energy UK Young Energy Professionals (YEP) Forum steering committee.

The awards recognise outstanding contributions made by individual companies to the economy, the environment and to customers.

Our congratulations go to those organisations shortlisted below. The winners will be announced on 4 December 2019 at Energy UK’s Annual Lunch and will also be published on our website.
