We are delighted to announce that Genius Hub has won a coveted 2022 Energy Award…
With 19 categories rewarding different aspects of the industry, the awards, recognise the leading people, products, projects and services in the sector, from Net Zero Initiative to Energy Champion of the Year.
This year saw the introduction of a face-to-face judging round, where finalists presented their entries directly to the judges.
This round, allowing entrants ‘to tell their story’ in a dynamic process is helping the Energy Awards, run by B2B publisher Emap, become one of the most sought-after accolades in the energy sector. The awards night itself combines industry recognition and unrivalled networking opportunities.
Andrew Gaved, Editor-in-chief of Emap’s H&V News and RAC magazines, who co-hosts the Energy Awards, said:
“This industry has gone through a turbulent time in the last year, but these awards show companies and individuals continuing to innovate, continuing to find ways to reduce energy and continuing to work hard for their customers, whether businesses or homeowners. This sector will be a key player in the journey to Net Zero so we are proud to honour its achievements.”
In its search for an effective, low-cost energy saving measure that could easily be retrofitted to the buildings across its estate, The Belfry Hotel & Resort engaged Genius Hub to carry out a pilot project on one of its buildings, Jacklin House. The aim was to significantly reduce the energy consumption within the rooms of the hotel, while at the same time improving guest comfort. Through the simple expedient of fitting Genius Radiator Valves that would adjust the temperature depending on the occupancy of the room, the client found that a lot of heat energy could be saved.
Genius Hub carried out the work during normal working hours, taking only 20 minutes on average to install the equipment during routine room changeovers. The Monitoring and Verification report carried out before and after installation found an average of 64% saving in energy – the second-largest running cost of the hotel after staff. Following the high levels of customer satisfaction, Genius Hub is now being rolled out to other buildings across the Belfry estate.
Genius Hub has won the Energy Project of the Year: Commercial and Industrial Award for their work with the Belfry Hotel, and was praised by the expert judging panel, who are drawn from across the energy sector: Judges praised our winning project for its innovation and cost effectiveness and for being very transferable.
