ONYX Insight welcomed Sir John Peace, Lord Lieutenant and the Queen’s personal representative in Nottingham, as he presented the company with two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise.
Based at the University of Nottingham Innovation Park, ONYX Insight – which employs more than 100 people in the city and around the world – won the awards for innovation and international trade, in recognition of revolutionary work to accelerate the transition from fossil fuels to clean energy, both in the UK and across the globe.
The company, which is the only one in the wind industry to win two Queen’s Awards, is changing the way the sector works, increasing productivity and efficiency to lower the cost of wind energy for all.
Bruce Hall, CEO, ONYX Insight, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Sir John to our Nottingham headquarters, and honoured to be presented with these two Queen’s Awards. They acknowledge the innovative role that the team here in the Midlands and at other ONYX locations across the world are playing to make wind energy more efficient and help the energy transition.”
Sir John Peace, Lord Lieutenant of Nottingham, said: “It has been fantastic to visit this cutting edge, global business based here in Nottingham but supporting manufacturing in other UK cities as it plays a central role in our efforts to transition away from fossil fuels. I can’t wait to see what’s next from a fast-growing business which is fully deserving of these two awards.”
