Andrew Buckley, Development Director, MEUC

Leaving Members after their annual review meetings, it has often struck Eddie and I that we had just met yet another “unsung hero” who through their efforts had made a material difference for their organisation in the fields of either fuels purchasing or energy and carbon management.

So, it’s with great pleasure for us to confirm that Peter has agreed that we should introduce this new award to mark exceptional performance. We are also very grateful to MEUC Members, Burges Salmon LLP, for agreeing to sponsor this award, which for 2018 will be presented at our Summer Members’ Meeting to be held on June 12th in their London offices.

Members may enter under one or more of five categories:

  • Gas and/or electricity purchasing
  • Energy management/energy efficiency improvements
  • Carbon reduction/reporting
  • Demand-side response and or flexibility
  • Energy strategy and longer-term planning

We want to hear from you, in no more than 200 words, the achievements made over the past year, whether they are based on a project or general management initiative and it would be helpful to the Judging Panel if you can provide some measure of quantification, for example in £ sterling, unit consumption saved or emissions reduced.

Joining Peter on the Judging Panel will be Jeremy Nicholson, the Director of the Energy Intensive Users’ Group and Nick Churchward, a Partner at Burges Salmon.

There’s just one month until entries close and we want to hear from you. It’s time the efforts and achievements made by our Members are recognised and celebrated.
