The competition is open!

The Wright Commission is a competition to highlight new, exciting and innovative ideas in the energy management space.  The prize will be a year’s mentoring from a major UK Retailer to bring the innovation, product or idea to market.


The Retail Energy Forum supported by Energy Live News run the competition annually in the memory Bill Wright who passed away in May 2017. Bill was a champion for energy, innovation and energy reduction and worked for many years at The John Lewis Partnership.


Entries are assessed by members of the Retail Energy Forum with the shortlist invited to present their ides in front of a live audience and judging panels at the end of Energy Live Expo, on 5th November, QEII Building in Westminster.


Last year’s winners were Nicotra Gebhardt. 

Greg Llewellyn, Director & General Manager, UK & Ireland, speaks enthusiastically on the benefits that the award has delivered.


“Winning this prestigious award initiated by the Retail Energy Forum has opened up the door for us to some major national retailers. Soon after winning the award, we were invited to give a presentation to all REF members at their meeting in Manchester. This stimulated interest from several of them and from there we have carried out a pilot installation in-store with the John Lewis Partnership.”


Entries close at 5 pm, Friday 30th August. 2019.
