Martin Shannon, Capita, said: “Being shortlisted in the Energy category at the Gas Industry Awards demonstrates our ability to challenge and innovate within the utilities sector with some very tough competition. We are in a strong position to deliver the smart energy model across a number of sectors and will demonstrate that change approach comes with some real tangible savings. When an industry that is crammed full of talented people and exceptional network operators we consider it to be a huge honour to be nominated for these awards.”

The event is organised by the Energy and Utilities Alliance, (EUA) and the Institution of Gas Engineers and Managers, (IGEM.)

Chris Clarke, IGEM President Elect and Chair of Judges, said: “Once again we have had the unenviable task of trying to pick just 28 nominees out of nearly 100 high calibre applications. The quality of nominations this year was stunning, and while our job was not easy, we are confident that the shortlist represents the absolute best and brightest the gas industry has to offer. With over 30 nominations in the Innovation category alone, this just goes to show how the gas industry is determined to advance itself in every way possible while delivering on its commitment to safety and customer service.”

Vic Tuffen, President of EUA, said: “When you have an industry that is crammed full of talented people and exceptional companies such as ours, no one can deny that it’s a huge honour to be nominated for these awards.On Behalf of EUA and IGEM, I would like to wish all of the shortlisted nominees the best of luck and we look forward to seeing them at the Park Lane Hilton on May 14th for what promises to be a spectacular event.”

The winners will be revealed on the 14th May at a ceremony at the London Hilton, Park Lane. The event will be attended by over 600 senior representatives of the gas industry and the keynote speech will be given by Ofgem Chief Executive, Dermot Nolan.
