The Association for Decentralised Energy (ADE) and Vital Energi are delighted to announce that this year’s ADE Awards Dinner will be held at the Natural History Museum in London, marking the tenth anniversary of the Museum’s trigeneration scheme.

The ADE Awards celebrate the best in district heating, combined heat and power and demand side management. The Awards showcase real projects delivering energy cost savings, economic growth and carbon reductions to businesses and communities across the country.

“The Natural History Museum is a great place to celebrate the achievements of decentralised energy,” said Tim Rotheray, Director of the ADE. “Last year alone the Museum saved just under £1million on its energy bills through its partnership with Vital Energi and millions of visitors have benefited as a result.”

Vital Energi, sponsors of this year’s ADE Awards Dinner, are celebrating ten years working with the Natural History Museum. Its pioneering trigeneration scheme delivers heating, cooling and power to the museum, ensuring that priceless exhibits are kept in optimum conditions and that visitors have a great and comfortable experience.

Gary Fielding, Joint Managing Director at Vital Energi, commented, “We are honoured to sponsor this year’s ADE Awards. They do a fantastic job of spotlighting the outstanding work being done to reduce carbon emissions and generate more affordable energy. Hosting the awards at the Natural History Museum is a great way to celebrate the tenth anniversary of their trigeneration scheme and successful approach of achieving long term carbon and financial savings.”

Past ADE Award winners have ranged from district heating networks providing affordable warmth to low incomes households, to industrial energy centres reducing energy costs and boosting productivity, to innovative control systems and leading edge software ensuring that our energy system works as efficiently and effectively as possible.

The 2016 ADE Awards are now open for entries. The deadline for entries is Thursday 30 June. Full details of the awards and how to enter can be found at http://heatconference.co.uk/index.php/awards.
