The UK's first community energy awards

September 9th, 2014 | 8:51 am

On September 4th the UK’s first community energy awards, organised by Energise London, took place at Oxford town hall. The event was a significant milestone for the community energy industry and brought recognition to those most instrumental in its progression.

We were proud to be nominated for the Funder of the year award; a nomination which we shared alongside the ethical bank Triodos and the eventual winner Trillion Fund. We were also proud to see two CO2Sense funded projects amongst the finalists for the numerous other awards; truly a reflection of the benefit that our unique flexible finance and advice has been able to deliver to projects.

For his efforts in promoting low carbon and community energy to the public, Mike Ford of CO2Sense funded Esk Energy Yorkshire Ltd received the award for Energy Champion of the Year. Mike has regularly hosted talks and contributed towards publications promoting the green energy industry.

John Hudson of Roseland Community Energy Trust, in which CO2Sense invested £50,000, was also shortlisted for the leader of the year award. John has overcome significant challenges leading the development of the 12MW Roseland wind farm, one of the largest community projects in the UK.

We look forward to next year’s awards where we hope to see an even bigger turn out of CO2Sense funded finalists and award winners.
