Regen SW’s Art and Green Energy Award – £1000 prize

Sponsored by Institution of Civil Engineers


Regen SW’s Green Energy Awards are now in the 13th year and have been recognising and celebrating the achievements of pioneers and projects in the sustainable energy industry.

Over the past 3 years, Regen SW has been developing an arts and energy programme and now, for the first time, they are awarding an Arts and Green Energy Award with a prize of £1000.

The Green Energy Awards are one of Regen SW’s most popular events and we hope that this award will raise awareness of arts and energy practice and the opportunities that these projects present across the sustainable energy sector. Around 300 guests attend the dinner and tickets always sell out really fast.
