Energy firms go for gold

‘Hall of Fame’ place awaits key player at pres­ti­gious cer­e­mony

- BY KEITH FNDLAY

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.
