Scottish Renewables Scottish Green Energy Awards 2019

A MAJOR Scottish renewable energy awards is open for nominations after it confirmed plans to hold a physical ceremony later this year.

The Scottish Green Energy Awards, sponsored by EDF Renewables, will take place with social-distancing measures in place.

Nominations are open for 11 categories, with submissions welcome from all renewable energy technologies, from wind, hydro and solar to wave power, low-carbon heat and more.

Claire Mack, Scottish Renewables chief executive, said: “Scotland’s renewable energy industry is playing a critical role in our fight against climate change.

“The Scottish Green Energy Awards gives us an opportunity to take a step back and celebrate the truly incredible work being done by our industry as we work towards net-zero.

“Every year I am inspired by the talent, passion and innovation showcased by those doing ground-breaking work which is driving real change as we work to decarbonise our energy system.”

The event will take place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on November 26.
