Event description
We return to City Hall in London to celebrate the Community Energy sector's achievements over the past year.

About this Event

Community Energy England and Community Energy Wales have teamed up again to deliver the 2019 Community Energy Awards. The ceremony which includes a drinks reception will take place on the evening of 18 October at City Hall, London. Book your place to attend this free event.

The Community Energy Awards headline sponsors are Co-op Energy and Greater London Authority. Thrive Renewables are sponsoring the drinks reception.

See more information on the awards process, ceremony and sponsorship opportunities.

We are excited to announce that one of the keynote speakers at the awards will be Andrew Sims, author, political economist and campaigner. He is co-director of the NewWeather Institute, coordinator of the Rapid Transition Alliance, assistant director of Scientists for Global Responsibility, a research associate at the University of Sussex, and a fellow of the New Economics Foundation. Andrew devised ‘Earth Overshoot Day,’ marking when in the year we start living beyond our ecological means, and coined the term ‘Clone Towns’ describing the homogenisation of high streets caused by chain stores. New Scientist magazine called him a 'master at joined up progressive thinking’. His books include Cancel the Apocalypse, Ecological Debt, Do Good Lives Have to Cost the Earth? and The New Economics. ‘Economics: A Crash Course’, the first beginners guide to the subject written from a new economics’ perspective and co-authored with David Boyle, was published in July. He tweets from @andrewsimms_uk

Nominations are now closed.
