Community Energy Awards 2019

Community & Culture

We return to City Hall in London to celebrate the Community Energy sector's achievements over the past year.

Community Energy England and Community Energy Wales have teamed up again to deliver the 2019 Community Energy Awards. The ceremony which includes a drinks reception will take place on the evening of 18 October at City Hall, London. Book your place to attend this free event.

See more information on the awards process, ceremony and sponsorship opportunities.

We are excited to announce that one of the keynote speakers at the awards will be Andrew Sims, author, political economist and campaigner. He is co-director of the NewWeather Institute, coordinator of the Rapid Transition Alliance, assistant director of Scientists for Global Responsibility, a research associate at the University of Sussex, and a fellow of the New Economics Foundation. Andrew devised ‘Earth Overshoot Day,’ marking when in the year we start living beyond our ecological means, and coined the term ‘Clone Towns’ describing the homogenisation of high streets caused by chain stores. New Scientist magazine called him a 'master at joined up progressive thinking’. His books include Cancel the Apocalypse, Ecological Debt, Do Good Lives Have to Cost the Earth? and The New Economics. ‘Economics: A Crash Course’, the first beginners guide to the subject written from a new economics’ perspective and co-authored with David Boyle, was published in July. He tweets from @andrewsimms_uk

The Awards will be preceded by a half-day conference looking at some of the most innovative projects in the country and how replicable these projects could be. The event will feature an "open space" for extensive conversations. More details soon, but factor this into your plans for the awards

We have received some very inspiring nominations for awards which the judges will be mulling over in due course. You can still nominate a photo for the Community Energy Photo Award until 27 September. Could your photo be as infamous as last years winner?
