Council picks up prestigious award for local energy leadership

This week Bristol City Council received a first place award for Local Energy Leadership at the National Green Energy Awards, organised by Regen.

The award is in recognition of the council’s achievements in the energy sphere over the last decade and its strong commitment towards achieving carbon neutrality.

Bristol City Council was nominated alongside Devon County Council and the Welsh Government, which were commended for their excellent leadership in the energy field.

Councillor Kye Dudd, Cabinet Member for Energy, Waste and Regulatory Services attended the awards ceremony on 27 November in Bath’s Assembly Rooms.

Councillor Kye Dudd said “Bristol City Council is leading by example in taking action against climate change and has committed to Bristol becoming a carbon neutral city. The council’s award winning Energy Service is a driving force behind this activity, together with colleagues from many other Services across the council, delivering projects that benefit the social, economic and environmental health of our city and partners across the region.

“We’re really proud of what the council has achieved so far and this is just the beginning as we forge ahead towards carbon neutrality. It’s fantastic to have our work recognised by our peers in the energy industry and I’d like to thank all of the teams across the council that have been involved in energy projects for their continued hard work and dedication.”
