24 Mar 2011
28th February 2001 - Michael Doran, Director, Action Renewables announced the winners of the third annual Action Renewables Association Awards, at the beautiful Ulster Museum. Sponsored by Tughans, the Awards are growing from strength to strength and aim to recognise and reward numerous businesses who are leading the way by identifying the importance of renewable energy and sustainability as well as embracing renewable technologies within the fast developing green industry in Northern Ireland.
Junior Minister Gerry Kelly MLA was in attendance as well as a host of VIPs and key businesses from both north and south of the border.
Many public and private organisations from across Northern Ireland battled it out to take away one of the six highly coveted environmental awards.
Dimplex Renewables sponsored the award for ‘Most innovative Renewables installation’ which was won by Larne Borough Council. 2nd place in this category was won by Castle Ward Base Camp - National Trust, Downpatrick where a Dimplex LA 11 MS Heat Pump along with Dimplex SmartRads and underfloor heating have been installed.
The Award for ‘Best Energy Saving SME’ was won by Oaklee Housing Association for a retro-fit project in 2 social houses in Co. Antrim that are now being heated by Dimplex LA11 AS Heat Pumps. Working alongside NIE & Dimplex Renewables, Oaklee Housing Association believes that the conversion to a more eco-friendly method of heating will not only reduce the carbon footprint of Social Housing across NI, but seriously reduce the problem of fuel poverty.
Michael Doran, director, Action Renewables was delighted with the increased interest in the 2011 awards and commented “This year we opened up the awards to all organisations in Northern Ireland, to give everyone the opportunity to have their green efforts rewarded. We were delighted in the increasing response to the awards and this was reflective in the turnout for the awards luncheon today".
"It is encouraging to see that organisations across all sectors are embracing alternative energy and new technologies to improve their business. Not only will these organisations be protecting the environment by reducing their carbon footprint and CO2 emissions but they have invested in their companies’ future and will benefit from security of supply and cost reductions in their fuel bills”
