Young person in LPG awards open for nominations

Friday 28th June 2024

An industry awards programme, which recognises talented young individuals in the LPG sector, has opened for nominations this June.

Organised by trade association Liquid Gas UK, and proudly sponsored by Vaillant, the annual initiative returns for its fourth year for those aged 35 and under who are making a significant impact in the LPG and renewable liquid gases industry.

Opening the awards, Mark Wilkins, technologies and training director at Vaillant, said: "We’re incredibly proud to sponsor the young person in LPG awards again this year. These awards are crucial in recognising and celebrating the achievements of young professionals in our industry. By highlighting their contributions, we hope to inspire even more young people to pursue careers in the industry."

As part of the sector's ambitious transition to being 100% renewable by 2040 and catapult commercial production of renewable liquid gases, Liquid Gas UK forecasts significant job growth, indicating a bright future for careers in this sector.

George Webb, chief executive of Liquid Gas UK said: "As our industry advances towards a renewable future, it’s essential to attract and retain new talent. The next generation will be key in delivering this transition and ensuring LPG remains a future-proof heating option. These awards play a vital role in recognising and encouraging the young talent that will lead our industry forward."

Nominations for the awards are open from 26 June 2024 and will close on 6 September 2024. All nominations will be judged by an expert awards panel, with winners announced at the Liquid Gas UK Annual Conference in Cardiff on 10 October 2024.
