Let's showcase our green credentials
COMPANIES committed to the development of the renewables industry are invited to enter the only awards dedicated to the Humber's green energy sector.
Now in their second year, the Humber Renewables Awards 2013 are set to be even bigger and better than the debut event, with two new categories up for grabs.
Entries are now being sought for the awards, which will culminate in a ceremony at The Deep on March 1.
Andrew Morton, account director of Footprint Renewables – the specialist public relations and marketing company hosting the awards – said: "The 2012 awards were a great success, with dozens of individuals, local businesses and training providers recognised for their work to make our region a centre of excellence for the renewables industry.

"Given the rapid development of this sector, the awards are an important way of showcasing how the Humber is capable of meeting this challenge."
From bio-energy plants and micro-generation schemes to marine renewables, not forgetting Siemens's proposed wind turbine factory at Green Port Hull, the Humber is seeing huge investment in green technology.
This year's headline sponsor is KC Business. Sean Royce, KC's commercial and finance director, said: "The 2012 event was a fantastic showcase of our region's expertise across the whole green energy industry and of the activity already under way to make Hull and the Humber a renewables hub.
"It's important for established businesses to support this emerging sector and we're looking forward to seeing excellent award entries."
One of the organisations that triumphed in 2012 was Humberside Engineering Training Association (Heta).
James McIntosh, Heta marketing and communications manager, said: "The Humber region has the potential to be a hub for renewables for years to come and there are organisations that are making great strides in the sector and deserve recognition."
There are ten categories and nominations are made using an online entry form.
The deadline for entries is January 11, after which a panel of independent judges from the renewables industry and local business community will produce a shortlist of finalists and decide the winners.
