Women Scoop EI Awards For Achievement in Geothermal Energy and Energy Data Revolution

18 November 2019   (0 Comments)

The achievements of two leading energy professionals in the fields of geothermal energy and energy data were recognised at the gala ceremony of the 20th Energy Institute (EI) Awards in London.

Alongside winners in six other project categories, the two ‘individual’ awards both went to women. Dr Charlotte Adams, Assistant Professor at Durham University was awarded Energy Champion. Mariah McKavanagh, Managing Director of Verv Energy became the Young Professional of the Year.

Opening the evening’s gala ceremony, EI President Steve Holliday FREng FEI said:

“The EI Awards are a celebration of the very best our industry has to offer to society, here in the UK and around the world.

“The ‘ask’ of our profession – meeting both emissions reduction and energy demand – can only realistically be ‘answered’ if we draw on all of the talents society has to offer. We need all of the brains, regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability and orientation.

“Progress opening up our sector is glacial. Society is watching us, scrutinising and demanding change - and I’m glad to say these awards are a part of the answer. They recognise and encourage diversity, ambition and innovation in our industry.”
