Fifth Year student Victory Luke has been named the Emerging Sustainable Energy Champion at the SEAI Energy Awards. This awards banquet is a yearly event where the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland celebrates businesses in Ireland that have made significant changes to their sustainability and energy efficiency.
Companies that were recognised on the day include Musgrave, Abbott Laboratories and many other companies across the country. Victory was awarded the Emerging Sustainable Energy Champion award for her work in Transition Year on the Generation Green Challenge and her campaigning at the International Energy Conference which was held in Dublin during June. Victory’s work was commended by both Minister Richard Bruton and the Chair of the SEAI Julie O’Neill.
Finally, Victory was given the opportunity to address the business and political leaders who were present and urged them to continue to their efforts and to strive to partner more with schools and their local communities.
