“Nominate your boss, nominate your client – you can even nominate yourself. This is a chance to give all the people that are making our industry great a pat on the back for their commitment to keeping our homes warm, our businesses ticking over and our futures bright.”

Mike Foster, Chief Executive of the Energy and Utilities Alliance, said: “The annual Gas Industry Awards provide an excellent opportunity to celebrate the progress of the industry whilst discussing and inspiring the future. The UK’s extensive gas network is a national asset which provides a secure, flexible source of energy and it is vital to the future of the UK’s energy infrastructure. The gas grid holds the key to solving some of the most pressing environmental and social issues of our time, from fuel poverty and decarbonising domestic heat to improving air quality.

“The Gas Industry Awards offer the chance to acknowledge the work within the industry which is enabling the gas grid to remain at the forefront of the energy trilemma agenda. Gas can support a low carbon future not just in the energy sector, but in heat, transport and the wider industry. It will play a crucial role in the overall energy mix.”

The Gas Industry Awards luncheon will bring over 600 professionals from around the industry together in celebration of everything that makes our industry great. It takes place at the London Hilton Park Lane, on 15 May 2019.
