United Kingdom: Dr Charlotte Adams is an Energy Champion!

Women scoop EI Awards for achievement in geothermal energy and energy data revolution (News Release)

The achievements of two leading energy professionals in the fields of geothermal energy and energy data were recognised last night at the gala ceremony of the 20th Energy Institute (EI) Awards in London.

Alongside winners in six other project categories, the two ‘individual’ awards both went to women. Dr Charlotte Adams, Assistant Professor at Durham University was awarded Energy Champion. Mariah McKavanagh, Managing Director of Verv Energy became the Young Professional of the Year.

Charlotte Adams’ outstanding work bridges the gaps between academia, industry and society and promotes Geothermal energy options in the UK. She was co-founder of BritGeothermal and her work on the potential to use water from abandoned mines to heat UK homes has led to a debate in Parliament led by Helen Goodman MP.
