Calling global leaders in energy management to participate in 2019 Global Energy Management Awards

19 Nov 2018

The Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) is now accepting entries for its 2019 Energy Management Leadership Awards. These awards are a key initiative of the Energy Management Working Group, which is one of the task groups under the G20 Energy Efficiency Leading Programme (G20 EELP).

The CEM awards programme provides a framework to identify and showcase leading organisations around the world for their energy management achievements. Any industrial, commercial, or public-sector organisation that holds a current ISO 50001 certificate from an accredited certification body is eligible to enter the competition and submit case studies for recognition. To date, the awards programme has recognised over 120 energy management leaders.

In addition to international recognition, countries can leverage the programme’s infrastructure to offer national awards. Winners will be honoured at the tenth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM10) in Canada in May 2019. The CEM brings together energy ministers and high-level officials from 24 member countries and the European Commission to accelerate the global transition to clean energy.

The CEM’s analysis shows that implementation of the ISO 50001 across service and industrial sectors globally could drive cumulative energy savings of approximately 105 exajoules by 2030, saving over USD 700 billion in energy costs and avoiding 6,500 million metric tons of CO2 emissions. The projected annual emissions savings are equivalent to removing 215 million passenger vehicles from the road.

Interested companies are encouraged to visit the CEM Energy Management Leadership Awards website to learn more about the award rules, entry format, scoring, and recognition.

The submission deadline is 31 January 2019.

 IPEEC wishes you all the best! 

The Energy Management Working Group (EMWG) was launched in 2010 to reduce global energy use in industrial and commercial buildings. The EMWG project contributes to the activities of a Task Group of the International Partnership of Energy Efficiency Cooperation (IPEEC) and is led by the Governments of Canada and United States.
