Forever Fuels win Company of the Year at the British Renewable Energy Awards 2015

Leaders from green energy business, finance, policy and politics gathered last Thursday (18th June) to celebrate the successes of the growing renewable energy economy.  The tenth annual British RenewableEnergy (REA) Awards Gala Dinner at London’s Savoy Hotel, saw Forever Fuels win the coveted Company of the Year Award for the company that’s done the most in the past year to advance UK renewables.

On winning the award Managing Director, Bruno Prior, said “Our mission is to make wood-pellet heating as simple, economic and common in off-grid areas as any other form of heating.  We aim to sell 1 million tonnes in ’20/21 out of a total market of 3m tonnes.  What sets us apart is our level of investment and the unprecedented growth of our business – six fold over three years – compared with those in other renewable energy sectors.

Our growth is attributable to the foresight and entrepreneurship of our management team, the hard work of our staff and business partners, and the £20m investment we have received from our parent company, Summerleaze Ltd.  We have spent our money wisely, investing in depots and specialist tankers to create the most comprehensive distribution network throughout the UK of any wood-pellet fuel supplier.

This is a significant endorsement for both Forever Fuels and wood heating in general.
