“We are pleased to announce the date for this year’s awards and are looking forward to receiving lots of high calibre nominations in the coming months.”

“The awards offer an opportunity to celebrate the progress made within the industry and discuss the future challenges we face. The UK’s extensive gas network is a national asset, which provides a secure, flexible source of energy and has the power to be truly transformative; it can be used to tackle some of the most pressing energy issues – from affordability and fuel poverty, to decarbonisation and meeting climate change targets.

“This event offers the chance to acknowledge the work that so many within the industry are doing which enables the gas grid to be at the forefront of addressing the energy trilemma.”

Sheila Lauchlan, President of IGEM, said:

 “As the gas industry enters a critical period in its history, it’s only right that we recognise and honour the superb individuals, companies and projects that are helping the UK to tackle the energy trilemma and preserve our industry for generations to come. The staggering number of nominations we received for last year’s awards is testament to the amount of incredible work taking place with respect to innovation, safety and energy efficiency – not to mention the astounding dedication and professionalism of the people at the heart of this industry.

“It is my hope that we can we can make this year’s awards ceremony our biggest yet and, with our new online nominations portal, it’s now simpler than ever to acknowledge the success stories of the gas world.”
