Energy Agency wins NHIC George Plucknett Award for Excellence

Liz Marquis, Director and Alan McGonigle, Deputy Director collected the prestigious NHIC Award for Excellence at a luncheon in Westminster, London.

The award is presented to the category-winning entrant that most closely fulfils the objectives of the National Home Improvement Council.  The late George Plucknett was a key activist in setting up and firmly establishing the Council as an agent for change on behalf of homeowners and tenants. 

Liz Marquis said 'It’s a great honour to win such a prestigious award and is an acknowledgement of the important work that we do. Winning the award has brought the Energy Agency to the attention of members from both Houses of Parliament and leaders from a wide range of industries who all attended'.
