The winners of the Association for Renewable Energy and Clean Technology’s (REA) British Renewable Energy Awards have been announced.
Now in its 15th year, the award winners were revealed in a prestigious virtual event on 26 January. The awards demonstrated the ‘amazing work’ undertaken on the road to net-zero and celebrated the achievements of companies and individuals who have done something ‘fantastic’ in the field of renewables or clean technology over the past year.
Dr Nina Skorupska, CBE, chief executive of the REA, said: “This year could be a momentous one for our industry, with COP26 having the potential to be a watershed moment in our drive towards net-zero.
“What better way then, to start 2021, than with a celebration of the brilliant work of so many organisations and individuals in our renewable energy and clean technology sectors.
“I would also like to reiterate my thanks to all of our incredible judges who had to make such difficult decisions in choosing winners from a strong field of finalists this year.
“We have so much to be proud of as an industry and these winners, and indeed all of our finalists, represent the very ‘Best of British’.”
