The Community Initiative Award, sponsored by Hindustan Petroleum Corporation, went to Ashton Hayes Parish Council in Cheshire for the Ashton Hayes Going Carbon Neutral Project.

Mouchel Parkman, whose head office is in West Byfleet, Surrey, scooped ExxonMobil’s Innovation Award for its work on the Teesside Gasport.

The Outstanding Individual Achievement Award, sponsored by Norman Broadbent, went to Iain Percival MEI for his work in promoting energy careers and mentoring young professionals.

Sarah Beacock, EI’s professional affairs director, said: ‘Held for its eighth year, the EI Awards acknowledge the contribution that people make on a daily basis and the Energy Institute is therefore delighted to host a ceremony that recognises organisations and individuals whose achievements stretch the boundaries of excellence and commitment to their work.’
