2018 Energy Management Leadership Awards submission deadline extended

17 Jan 2018

The submission deadline for the 2018 Energy Management Leadership Awards has been extended to 14 February 2018.

Any organisation with an ISO 50001-certified energy management system is invited to participate in this prestigious awards programme from the Energy Management Working Group (EMWG), which aims to showcase leadership and achievements that support organisational, national, and global climate goals.

Industrial, commercial, and public sector organisations or facilities are eligible to enter if they hold a current ISO 50001 certificate from an accredited third-party certification body. To enter the competition, each organisation must submit a structured case study describing its energy management experience and the resulting benefits. The submissions will be evaluated by an independent panel of international experts. 

Top entries will receive the prestigious 2018 Award of Excellence for Energy Management. These winning organisations will be recognised next year during the ninth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM9) meeting, which will be held in the cities of Copenhagen, Denmark, and Malmö, Sweden, and attended by energy ministers and corporate leaders from around the globe.

Beyond the Award of Excellence, each organisation that submits a qualifying entry will receive an Energy Management Insight Award for contributing to global knowledge-sharing on the benefits of energy management systems.

All accepted entries will be published online to highlight the range of benefits achieved through the use of ISO 50001-certified energy management systems. Award-winning entries from previous years are featured on the CEM website in the EWMG’s case study library, where case studies can be filtered by industry, country, award received, and keyword search.

This awards programme is one of several high-impact activities organised by the EMWG, a joint initiative of IPEEC and CEM.
