The REA is pleased to announce the 7th Annual British Renewable Energy Awards to be held at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel on Thursday, 21st June 2012.

The REA is pleased to announce several changes to the Awards categories this year including the Judges Award which will be decided by our impressive lineup of judges.
Community – for a community group which has been active in developing a community renewable energy project or programme of renewable installations in their locality during 2011.
Flagship Project – for a company that has developed an outstanding renewables project. This may be a building integrated project, an on-site development or a particularly noteworthy stand-alone project.
Installer – for a company which has excelled in the installation of on-site renewable equipment.
Journalist – for a broadcast, broadsheet, or online commentator who has excelled in the communication of renewable energy.
Manufacturer / Employer – for a company which has noteworthy manufacturing facilities for renewable energy equipment, components or fuels or is making other products but is using its own on-site renewable energy source, or perhaps has improved its environmental performance by introducing some other process technique involving renewables, or has encouraged renewables through its supply chain.
Pioneer – for an organisation outside the sustainable energy industry, pioneering the use of renewable fuels, heat or power.
Political Leadership – for a national, regional or local politician who has made an outstanding contribution to advancing UK renewables.
Technological Innovation – for any innovative, new, renewable energy conversion device, invention or application which has achieved a major milestone or reached the market since 2011.
The Judges Award - we have decided to replace the former Champion Award with a special Judges Award this year. It is anticipated that the judges will mainly consider lifetime achievement, but the award could conceivably be given for any other outstanding contribution to renewables not covered by the above categories. Judges are happily accepting suggestions of names for this category.
Application and Judging Process
Initial nominations can be made on-line via a simple form here. You can nominate anyone (including yourself or your company) for any Award. Nominations close on Friday, 9th March 2012.
The British Renewable Energy Awards have a distinguished panel of judges with wide experience across the energy and related sectors. These judges consider all the pre-nominations and narrow them down to short-lists of typically (but not necessarily) 5 to 9 nominees for each Award.
The short-listed nominees are then invited to complete a fuller entry (in two pages with images), closing in May. The judges will then meet to select the winner and any runners-up in each category.
The 2011 Awards gala dinner was a huge success with over 350 guests from across the industry converging in London to celebrate the best in renewables. Peter Ainsworth, a Member of Parliament for 18 years and now the Chairman of the UK BIG Lottery Fund, hosted the event and sponsors included British Sugar and Infinis. The REA received hundreds of pre-nomations which were then narrowed down to a shortlist of 40 nominees. The winners were then selected from a top panel of judges.
