Every day, the people behind the UK's utilities go above and beyond the call of duty to deliver these vital services to homes and businesses. Following a successful launch event in 2013 and building on the success of last summer, this summer Utility Week is holding the Stars Awards to celebrate the vital contribution of frontline and back office staff, recognising individuals and teams from energy and water businesses. We're looking for the unsung heroes of utilities; the people who work overnight – and sometimes over Christmas – to deal with the fallout of extreme weather events; the back office teams and dedicated customer service providers who make a real difference to peoples' lives. This year introduces a new venue, new categories and some new faces are looking to improve your customer service or increase your efficiency in data management or mobile service delivery we would be delighted to talk to you.
