We are delighted to announce a new prize opportunity at this year’s Awards, sponsored by the Rexel Foundation.

An amazing £15,000 prize will be awarded to the most deserving non-profit-making organisation that has developed and executed a socially Innovative Community Project in 2014, that has benefitted those most in need in terms of energy and cost savings.

The Rexel Foundation was established as part of Rexel’s social and environmental commitment to the communities in which it operates. This prize is offered to highlight awareness of the challenges that fuel poverty presents, and to encourage the industry to seek new ways to overcome the difficulties faced by those most disadvantaged by rising fuel costs, and share its vision for a better energy future for all.

The prize, will take the form of goods and services for a future project within the same parameters (refer to entry form for full terms & Conditions), and will be provided by Rexel Energy Solutions, a division of Rexel UK Ltd.

This is a great opportunity to make your project aspirations a reality and your chance to work with Rexel to make a huge difference to the lives of those within your community, so we hope you will be inspired to enter!
