Judged by an expert panel, award categories include Consumer Champion, Diversity and Inclusion, Rising Star, Team of the Year and YEP of the Year. New to this year’s awards, in memory of Audrey Gallacher who made an outstanding contribution to the energy industry and its customers, a young energy professional who has taken a non-academic route into the industry will be presented with the Audrey Gallacher Award for Excellence.

Energy UK’s Director of Advocacy and Judge for the YEP of the Year award, Dhara Vyas, said:
“This year’s YEP awards nominations represent a pool of incredible talent from the energy industry. Now more than ever, it is important to recognize the contribution of early-career professionals bringing fresh ideas to a sector undergoing a huge transformation. I have no doubt the nominees will go on to become industry leaders and drive further change and innovation across the energy sector.”
