We’re double winners

We’re delighted to have won two awards at this month’s Community Energy Awards. BWCE won Community Energy Company of the Year and our chair Pete Capener was awarded Leader of the Year. Pete said, “After many years in the clean energy business it is very satisfying to receive this award. Not many years ago we were a few enthusiasts from Transition Bath sitting round a table with a great idea. Now only four years later we have been recognised as one of the leading community energy companies in the country.”

Many thanks to the Community Energy Awards for this recognition, and congratulations to all the organisations and people who were nominated. You can see the full list of winners on the Community Energy Awards website.

Finalists in the UK Community Energy Awards

BWCE have been selected as one of the three finalists in two categories for the UK Community Energy Awards. BWCE (and all its members) have been shortlisted in the Community Organisation of the Year category. And our Chair Pete Capener for the Leader of the Year. Pretty impressive we think – so a big thank you to all our members and supporters for getting us so far, so fast. Many of them will be at the award ceremony on the 4th September in Oxford.

The Community Energy Awards provides an opportunity for organisations and individuals to receive recognition for the work they do in helping communities take control of their energy bills and transform the energy system. So in our view all Community Energy groups should be winners. However it would be especially nice if BWCE and even more especially nice if Pete C ended up actual winners. Does anyone know a judge?
