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 ha
s 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.
