SMK Awards: David & Goliath winner 2023

Posted on: 28 Jun 2023

JRRT is proud to sponsor the David & Goliath Award at the SMK Awards, which celebrates individuals or small campaign groups that take on much bigger organisations and challenge vested power.

Our Award sponsorship is made in memory of former Director, Lord David Shutt.

And the 2023 winner has now been announced!


Congratulations to The Community Energy Revolution!

  • You want to buy locally baked bread? You can.
  • You want to buy locally brewed beer? You can.
  • You want to buy locally generated renewable energy? You can’t.

Power for People are co-ordinating grassroots advocacy across the UK for the Local Electricity Bill.

The Bill, if enacted, would empower community energy schemes to sell their clean energy back to their community. Their campaign has gathered cross-party support from more than 300 MPs.

In accepting the award, Steve Shaw and Corinna Miller from Power for People said:

The Community Energy Revolution campaign would not have the impressive support it currently has in Parliament without the tireless advocacy of people in communities across the country. We have come a long way but are still working hard to see this change enacted – it is vital both for our communities and for the planet.
