Pathways to decentralised, flexible energy

The shift to decentralised, flexible energy generation, use and supply is gathering pace. Renewable Futures this year brought together a unique line up of business leaders and policy makers to provide a valuable insight into the emerging market opportunities and the chance to build new business partnerships.

Green Energy Awards

The Green Energy Awards was a night to remember, as we celebrated the success of the south west renewable energy industry, at the Assembly Rooms in Bath.

The awards were a great opportunity to entertain clients, network, reward staff and see some of the best examples of renewable energy in the south west being recognised.

The 2016 awards began with a drinks reception, followed by a three course locally sourced dinner and then the presentation of the prestigious awards.
