Double whammy for EOS

EOS Energy, part of the Alumet Group, had a double celebration at the inaugural Renewable Awards in front of 800 industry professionals at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.

EOS was named winner of the Commercial Renewables Project of the Year award and the Commercial Installer of the Year award.

The Renewable Awards were part of the Renewables Roadshow which is an industry sponsored travelling exhibition showcasing the latest technologies and training to trade professionals in all the renewable power industries.

Alumet Group managing director Gary Summers collected the first award of the night – Commercial Renewables Project of the Year – in his signature green jacket.

EOS Energy’s winning development was the Hendra Holiday Park project in Cornwall: a £3.1million contract that saw EOS install a solar farm with 5,000 PV modules ground mounted on their unique BritSol system.

The photovoltaic array now provides up to 50 per cent of the power for the holiday park – the equivalent of 400 residential homes!

“Awards like these are a great way of rewarding all the people who have worked so hard to contribute to EOS Energy’s success this year,” said Summers.

The company’s second victory was is the Commercial Installer of the Year award, beating competition that included major players such as British Gas.

The judges commended the company for its commitment to all areas of the business including environment, community, facility expansion, staff training and quality as well as for the excellent standard of client testimonials received.

Additional praise was given to EOS Energy for its innovative campaign that offers free PV systems to both commercial and domestic clients across the UK.

EOS Energy’s marketing director, Dean Walton, said: “We are delighted to receive these two awards. We’ve worked tirelessly over the past 12 months to develop the business to an industry-leading standard and these accolades provide an excellent reward for the hard work of our team. The awards have certainly put EOS on the map as one of the leading renewable energy specialists in the country.”
