Nominations open for Energy Efficiency & Renewables Awards

The Energy Efficiency & Renewables Awards are returning to the Ricoh Arena this September.

Previously known as the Renewables Awards, this year’s show, which will be introduced by climate change minister Greg Barker, will benefit businesses that are looking to advance their credentials in the energy efficiency & renewables sector.

On the evening, guests are guaranteed an exciting evening at an event which has boasted entertainment from Michael Mcintyre & Omid Djalili and has been hosted by Gabby Logan & Julia Bradbury in recent years. Event organiser, Dan Caesar, promises a first class line-up again this Autumn: “We pride ourselves on our investment in high-profile hosts for our awards, which is just one of the reasons why in two short years, our awards are already recognised as the ones worth winning. With Greg Barker on board already and with big names from the entertainment industry to follow, it’s the best evening in the UK construction sector, bar none.”

If your business is serious about staking its claim in the fast-growing energy efficiency market, Ceasar says the value of being shortlisted should not be underestimated, while the value of winning an award is priceless. As well as an array of awards for products, projects & installers, for the first time this years categories are also including energy efficiency installers that specialise in glazing, insulation & lighting.
