Call for nominations: SEAD Connected Efficiency Award

24 Jul 2017

The Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) initiative is now receiving nominations for the Connected Efficiency Award, launched at the 8th Clean Energy Ministerial in Beijing in June 2017. The objective of the Award is to promote the uptake - within mains-powered, network-connected devices- of communications protocols which minimise the energy required to maintain network connectivity. It also aims to highlight those who develop these class-leading protocols and spur further innovation in this area.

The Award has been conceived in collaboration with the Connected Devices Alliance and the IEA 4E’s Electronic Devices and Networks Annex (EDNA). Authors of protocols or their designated parties are encouraged to nominate. Applicants must submit a completed application form and supporting documentation via the online system accessible during the nomination period.

The nomination period will be open from 24 July to 31 August.
