The Energy Live Consultancy Award (TELCA) kicked off in style yesterday at the beautiful Mermaid Theatre in London.
The glitzy Oscar-style ceremony, which attracted around 500 people including TPIs and suppliers, shone a light on energy consultants big and small.
It started with an electrifying LED dance routine – with robots and angle grinders – followed by ELN Editor Sumit Bose taking to stage in his sparkly blue suit.
The 12 winners were then revealed who took home the prestigious TELCA trophies.

Sumit ended the ceremony with thanks to everyone and it was on to a fabulous three-course meal and the party hit the dance floor through to the early hours.
We’d like to thank the judges, all of whom are working energy managers, for giving their time and expertise, unpaid, to make the best decision based on the facts they had.
Also a huge thank you to all our sponsors, especially our headline sponosor npower, without whom the TELCAs wouldn’t be possible.
Congratulations to all the winners and we hope to see you all next year!
