The REA (Association for Renewable Energy and Clean Technology) has announced the winners of the 19th British Renewable Energy Awards. The Awards, which took place on Thursday, 13th June in the Ballroom Suite of the Sheraton Grand Hotel, celebrated a range of individuals and companies on the forefront of the Net Zero transition. 

Amongst the awards were two winners of the Judges’ Awards. These are awarded at the discretion of the judging panel in recognition of the exceptional contribution of an individual to the sector or for lifetime achievement. This year, the winners of the Award were Caroline Lucas, outgoing Green Party MP, and Ed Wilson from Foresight Group. Judge Dr Alan Whitehead, outgoing Labour MP, paid tribute to Caroline for her cross-party work to advance climate action in Parliament over many years. On behalf of Ed Wilson, judge Michelle Davis from EY commended Ed for being a pioneer in sustainable finance. 

The Awards Ceremony also marked the final major public appearance of outgoing REA Chief Executive, Dr Nina Skorupska CBE. REA Board Chair Martin Wright thanked Nina for the energy, commitment and intelligence she showed in her role, and was pleased to welcome Trevor Hutchings as the new Chief Executive to take office from 1st July 2024. 

The REA congratulates all those nominated, shortlisted, ‘highly commended’ and the winners of this year’s Awards. The REA also thanks all attendees to the event and will continue to champion the best and the brightest in the industry going forwards. Finally, the REA thanks Drax, Citation, Bio Capital, Hitachi Energy, Eaton National Grid Electricity Distribution, RECC and EY for sponsoring this year’s Awards. 


Dr Nina Skorupska CBE, Chief Executive of the Association for Renewable Energy and Clean Technology (REA), said:
