Network Awards shortlist revealed

The shortlist for the 2019 Network Awards has been announced.

An independent panel of industry experts judged the entries at the awards judging day on Friday (11 January).

The new awards programme has been launched to recognise the good work taking place across the UK's energy networks, their supply chains and stakeholders.

The winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on 26 March 2019.

Network editor Alec Peachey said: "We received a large number of entries and the shortlist features a host of impressive projects and inventive new technology.

"Our team of expert judges faced a tough task and we're now looking forward to a fantastic evening of celebration in March."

You can see the full list of finalists here.

The Network Forum is also taking place on 26 March 2019 at National Conference Centre Birmingham. The event offers attendees an opportunity to learn about the innovative work taking place across the sector before coming together to celebrate the industry's successes at the Network Awards later that night.
