All this week, Energy Central has been taking the opportunity to celebrate the 'Top Voices' of 2021: highlighting our community members who went above and beyond—frequently sharing news and content, reliably starting conversations across the site, and providing genuinely high-value contributions.

We broke this series out into 6 articles celebrating the winners in each of our 6 Community Networks-- in case you missed any of these individual posts, we wanted to make sure to put them all in one place for another nod of appreciation, round of applause, and general sharing of our gratitude. While Energy Central strives to be the go-to platform for utility industry professionals to share what they are working on, to learn from their peers in the power sector, and to collaborate 24/7, 365 with the leading voices in the world of energy, none of that would matter without the intelligent, active, and excited community that's built this platform into what it is! This wouldn't happen without you, whether you're a daily contributor or an occasional reader. 

So, with that, thank you and congratulations to the following Top Voices in the Energy Central Networks in 2021!


    We also wanted to give another quick shoutout to some honorable mentions who weren't included in the above articles, namely because they were already awarded as our 2020 Voices but they have surely kept up the pace this year as well:
