SeaEnergy Renewables has scooped a prize in this year’s Green Energy Awards.

The prestigious accolades – run by industry body Scottish Renewables and now in their ninth year – took place last week in the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. The event was hosted by Fred MacAulay and a keynote speech was delivered by Secretary of State for Scotland Michael Moore.

SeaEnergy Renewables won the Best New Business Award. The Awards celebrate Scotland’s success in tackling climate change, creating a low carbon economy and maintaining its global lead in the green energy industry. They recognise innovation, enterprise and excellence in the renewable energy industry, from student and community projects to best business and outstanding contribution to the sector.

Joel Staadecker, the CEO of SeaEnergy Renewables, said:-“SeaEnergy Renewables is thrilled to win the Best New Business Award at the Green Energy Awards this year. SeaEnergy Renewables is Scotland’s only independent offshore wind developer and we are playing a vital role in this emerging industry. Three of our large-scale development sites are offshore Scotland. We are so proud to be a key part of Scotland’s offshore wind industry and to be a major participant in the effort to secure Scotland’s future as a global energy capital. Receiving this outstanding award is really a testament to both our pioneering role in the development of offshore wind and to the truly outstanding people that make up SeaEnergy Renewables.”

New figures from Scottish Renewables show that Scotland is on track to surpass the Government’s target of 31 per cent of all electricity demand to be met from renewables by 2011.

Speaking at the organisation’s annual dinner and awards for outstanding contribution to the growth of the industry in Edinburgh, Chief Executive Niall Stuart acknowledged the part played by companies like SeaEnergy Renewables in driving forward the industry:-“Congratulations to SeaEnergy Renewables. Together, this year’s Green Energy Award winners will deliver huge economic and environmental benefits to communities across Scotland, and it’s all thanks to the determination, ambition and ideas of companies like SeaEnergy Renewables.

Scotland’s renewables industry has grown faster and further than anyone dared to hope even a few years ago. We now have over 4GW of developments in operation – enough to generate 32 per cent of the annual demand for electricity from every home and business in the country.”

Speaking on behalf of All-Energy, sponsors of the Best New Business Award, Judith Patten, Project Director, said:-“All-Energy is delighted to continue to sponsor the ‘Best New Business Award’. Over the years it has been exciting, and rewarding, to see ‘our’ winning companies go from strength to strength. Scotland is rightly proud of the tremendous success stories emanating from many innovative companies who are rising to the challenges and grasping the ‘nettle of opportunity’ offered by the rapidly expanding renewable energy sectors – our ‘Best New Business Award’ winners have certainly been at the forefront. We wish this year’s richly deserved winner much success in the coming months and years, and know they will come to be seen as one of the ‘Best of the Best’.”
