Young Energy Professionals Awards 2020

On Friday 15 May 2020, Energy UK’s Young Energy Professionals (YEP) Forum will host its annual YEP Awards Ceremony, at the Leonardo Royal Hotel London St Paul’s. In its sixth year, the awards ceremony is an opportunity to celebrate and recognise the outstanding contribution and achievements of young professionals right across the energy sector.

This year's award categories are: 

  • Client Focus
  • Communication Focus
  • Customer Focus
  • Diversity & Inclusion Focus
  • Net Zero Focus
  • STEM & Innovation Focus
  • Rising Star
  • Team of the Year; and
  • YEP of the Year.

Last year saw a record number of applications (100+) and the highest number of different organisations shortlisted for awards (26). Additionally, an almost equal gender balance was achieved for the first time across those shortlisted and the award winners.

Last year's ceremony was hosted by the YEP Forum’s Chair, Paul Lowbridge, attended by over 200 young energy professionals and featured entertaining keynote speeches from Octopus Energy’s CEO, Greg Jackson, and Verv’s COO, Maria McKavanagh.
