Hot on the heels of being named as a finalist for the Ashden Awards, Severn Wye has today been shortlisted for the 2014 Sustainable Energy Europe (SEE) and ManagEnergy Awards by the European Commission.

 

One of 30 finalists, Severn Wye's work on Warm and Well was selected from 342 submissions, with just six winners being presented at the Awards Ceremony on the 24 June.

Severn Wye was nominated under the Managenergy Local Energy Action Award for our work in the community helping households. You can read more about our work here.

Over the last decade, our work through Warm and Well has directly improved more than 43,000 homes across the South West.

The other nominees range from solar powered neighbourhoods to wirelessly charged electric buses, zero-emissions breweries, and energy producing dairy farms, and highlight real-world projects leading the way towards a sustainable energy future for Europe.

Award winners will be decided by a high level jury with representatives from European institutions, local governments, energy agencies, specialised media, and industry associations.

Severn Wye's Chief Executive Catrin Maby OBE, said:

"We are very pleased to have been nominated for this award as it's more important than ever we work to try and achieve affordable warmth for all. For many households it is a real challenge to find impartial, practical and affordable advice and solutions to improve their home's energy efficiency. That is why, at Severn Wye, we believe in building a joined-up network of trained advisors and qualified assessors, installers and finance providers."
