We are very pleased to say that Ben Comninos, one of our 2014 British Gas analyst graduates was announced the winner of the Rising Star Award at the Young Energy Professional Awards organised by Energy UK earlier this year. Ben was recognised for his exceptional delivery in his first placement within British Gas, working as a Forecast Demand Analyst. Centrica also had two further shortlisted employees in other categories. Working in Demand Forecasting at British Gas gave Benjamin a unique opportunity to build his understanding of the very foundation upon which the Energy Industry operates; the demand for commodities, and how it interacts with and is determined by a multitude of other factors.
EY YEP of the Year 2015 recognises an individual, who has demonstrated a real commitment to the energy industry, and combined with their leadership skills, has shown great potential as a future leader in the energy industry.
