Worcester, West Midlands (PRWEB) September 16, 2010
npower is celebrating after being presented with 'The Consumer Supplier of the Year' award at the first ever Energy Event Awards. The award recognises the supplier that has excelled in providing industrial and commercial consumers with an outstanding service, product or innovation.
The awards are a new addition to the annual Energy Event, which took place at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham on 8-9th September 2010. The awards recognise and reward achievements in the energy industry, celebrating the suppliers and businesses that are bringing new ideas and innovations to how energy is used and managed.
The award was presented to David Cockshott, director of industrial and commercial markets at npower (http://www.npower.com/). He said: "It's brilliant that npower has been recognised as 'The Consumer Supplier of the Year'. We are particularly proud of the accolade because we were nominated by our own industrial and commercial business customers, and we'd like to thank them for their support."
David continued: "Offering our customers the best service is at the forefront of everything npower does and we strive to give businesses flexibility in how they buy their energy and to work in partnership with them to meet their energy needs.
"The judges also highlighted our Optimisation Desk as a key element of winning the award. This unique service allows our customers to access market developments, price analysis, trading information and updates and gives them a clear understanding of their position to help them to make more informed purchasing decisions."
The Energy Event is one of Europe's largest exhibitions and conferences and focuses solely on energy procurement, management and efficiency. This year it was attended by over 110 exhibitors, including npower, and provided the opportunity for attendees to visit suppliers, view the latest technologies and network with other people in the energy industry.
The Energy Event Awards were hosted at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel (NEC) on the evening of 8 September.
