2019 Innovation Awards open for nominations
The Smart Energy Decisions 2019 Innovation Awards program is now accepting nominations.
The Innovation Awards recognize exemplary use and implementation of innovative technologies and progressive practices among large electric power users (including commercial, industrial, cities, and higher education customers), their suppliers and utilities that reflect new approaches to energy procurement and management.
Now in its second year, the awards were created to recognize outstanding work taking place in support of the dramatic transformation taking place in today's electric power markets. As innovation is driven by effective collaboration between customers, suppliers, and utilities, the Innovation Awards will be presented in two categories:
Customer Project Awards will be presented to large electric power users that are using innovation to transform the way they procure and manage energy. Nominations may be submitted by large electric power users (customers) on their own behalf or by suppliers on behalf of a large electric power user (customer) with the customer's permission.
Utility Partnership Awards will be presented to utilities that are doing a superior job of establishing policies and programs that support or enable the efforts of their large electric power customers to make smarter energy sourcing and management decisions. Nominations may be submitted by utilities on their own behalf or by large electric power customers on behalf of a utility with the utility's permission.
The deadline for submissions is November 9. The Innovation Awards will be presented at an awards dinner capping off the 2019 Smart Energy Decisions Innovation Summit on March 13, 2019.
