EDF Energy wins big at the 2011 Energy Awards

Industry award rewards energy supplier for a strong year

EDF Energy’s business division has been named ‘Supplier of the Year’ at the Energy Awards, in a ceremony held in London’s Grange St Paul’s Hotel last night.

EDF Energy was recognised for its strong work across the business sector in what has been a successful year for its B2B division.

The Energy Awards judges recognised EDF Energy particularly for the innovative nature of its work with retailer Morrison’s. In a deal signed in May this year, EDF Energy announced a new three year customer-supplier agreement which included a £1 million energy saving guarantee each year for the supermarket chain. The deal comprises an innovative bundled contract, which brings together energy procurement and energy services expertise under one agreement.

Further success came in July with EDF Energy was awarded the UK’s largest ever electricity supply contract by the Government Procurement Service. The framework agreement sees EDF Energy supply electricity and energy related additional goods, works and services to the NHS, Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Justice, Metropolitan Police, London Underground, the Highways Agency and other bodies across central and local government.

Sid Cox, Director of B2B at EDF Energy said: “This award is recognition of the hard work and dedication of all the EDF Energy team members delivering value to our customers in difficult times.

“It is a privilege to be recognised in this way as the top energy supplier in the industry today. At EDF Energy, we strive to be the leader in providing to our customers innovative energy solutions which help them minimise their total energy costs while at the same time reducing their carbon consumption.”

The Energy Awards recognise achievement across the entire energy sector and bring key industry players together in a celebration of the efforts made towards mitigating mounting pressure from climate change targets, energy security worries and price concerns.

EDF Energy pipped a shortlist of top suppliers CNG, Gazprom Energy and Npower to take the top prize.
