On 3rd September 2016, the community energy industry will gather in Oxford for the third time to showcase and celebrate the communities, projects and individuals that are at the forefront of the community energy revolution.
The last year has been a busy and turbulent one in the Community Energy sector. To have received such a high number and calibre of deserving nominations has demonstrated to the collaborative organisers, Community Energy England and Community Energy Wales, the resilience and motivation that exists across the country to push the community energy ethos forward. The difficult task of deciding on the winner lays in the hands of the following judges: Lord Bourne, Anna Watson, Anne-Claire Leydier, Chris Blake, Ed Davey, Jon Halle, Merlin Hyman and Ramsay Dunning.
