About the Awards

West Cumbria has always played an important role in the UK's energy policy and I hope you’ll enjoy celebrating the successes, investments and innovations our member businesses tonight. I am very aware that proving we have the resources of expertise and reliability to tackle the challenges at Sellafield will give this area the reputation for delivery and the credibility it needs. Local business can then benefit from other nuclear and energy-related growth across the UK, Europe and the world.

The value of Britain's Energy Coast Business Cluster lies in how it can bring together different businesses – and we have over 190 member companies – and build networks among them. Our members are not only involved in nuclear business development but also in infrastructure investments, renewable energy projects and the social fabric of this beautiful place. Tonight’s Awards showcase that variety and, I hope, the area’s expertise and enthusiasm for success as well.

Chairman of Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster (BECBC)
