The awards showcase innovation, best practice and achievements across heat, efficiency, power and flexibility.

The Decentralised Energy Awards are back for 2022!

The Association for Decentralised Energy's annual awards are the leading and most prestigious awards for those involved in decentralised energy, recognising and celebrating the people and projects which have developed innovative decentralised energy solutions designed around the needs of the user.
