Poultry Specialist Wins Top Honour at UK Green Awards23 June 2014
UK - Leading poultry specialist, Rural Energy, has won a top honour at the renewable energy industry’s major awards.
Rural Energy was named ‘Installer of the Year’ in the prestigious British Renewable Energy Awards, which took place in London last week.
It was nominated for the highly-coveted award after delivering a number of major projects, including a £4-million contract to provide biomass boilers to Bernard Matthews’ farms across the country.
Rural Energy’s Managing Director Paul Clark received the honour at a black-tie gala dinner held at London’s Savoy Hotel.
Speaking after the event, Mr Clark said: “It is fantastic that the work of Rural Energy has been recognised by the renewable energy sector.
“This award is a great testament to the hard work, dedication and expertise of our team and its superb record of delivery in the poultry industry.
“Rural Energy continues to go from strength to strength, as more and more organisations recognise the many benefits of modern biomass technology.
“Many farmers are recognising the importance of biomass technology as a highly effective way of reducing energy bills and cutting carbon emissions. The Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and the financial benefits that this can bring makes the biomass proposition even more attractive.”
Based in Leicestershire, Rural Energy has spent over a decade at the forefront of the biomass sector. As well as installing biomass, the company offers a complete turn-key service, including design, project management and commissioning, as well as providing long term, hassle-free service and maintenance options for their biomass systems.
The company also has a distribution arm and offers training facilities for poultry rearers who are installing biomass.
REA Chief Executive, Dr Nina Skorupska, said of the awards: “It is a reminder that renewable energy is not just about technology, it’s something that is transforming our society at all levels, from people’s homes and communities to mainstream companies making major investments.”
