Energy firms go for gold
‘Hall of Fame’ place awaits key player at prestigious ceremony
Excitement is building for the 2018 Press and Journal Energy Voice Gold Awards, one of the most prestigious events in the Scottish business calendar, and many people are wondering who will be next to join the “hall of fame”.
Sponsored by Aberdeen Standard Investments (ASI), the accolade will recognise someone who has played or continues to play a key role in the energy industry’s future.
Whoever is named the 2018 inductee at the climax to the Gold Awards at the Marcliffe Hotel and Spa in Aberdeen on September 7 will join an illustrious group.
Former winners include eminent Aberdeen University oil and gas expert Alex Kemp, Balmoral Group chief executive Jim Milne and, last year, industry doyen Sir Ian Wood.
Martin Gilbert, co-chief executive of Standard Life Aberdeen, whose ASI business manages assets worth hundreds of billions of pounds on behalf of clients in 80 countries, said: “Aberdeen Standard Investments is delighted to support the hall of fame award at the P&J Gold Awards.
“It’s the leading energy awards event in the north-east which rightly recognises the individuals and organisations who continue to ensure the industry has a buoyant future.”
Statoil netted last year’s renewables award for its Hywind Energy Park off the coast of Peterhead.
