SEAI has launched its annual SEAI Energy Awards and is calling on climate action champions to showcase their achievements. Now in their 17th year, the SEAI Energy Awards recognise and reward excellence in sustainable energy in business, community, research, buildings, renewables and public sector. The Climate Action Plan has actions and targets across every sector in society. Every organisation will need to step up and make changes to how they manage their emissions. SEAI is calling for entries from those organisations or individuals who push the boundaries in energy efficiency best practice, use innovative renewable energy solutions, or increase energy awareness and inspire energy action among colleagues or peers.
Entries can include any combination of electricity, heat or transport initiatives. There are eight categories to choose from including: Large Business; Small and Medium Business; Public Sector; Energy Community; Buildings; Renewable Energy; Energy Manager or Team; and Research and Innovation, the winner of which receives a bursary of up to €10,000.
ASHRAE members may be particularly interested in these wards, including the category of “Innovative Deployment of Renewable Energy” – This award recognises organisations that have demonstrated a high level of innovation in the deployment and/or operation of a functioning renewable energy project. Projects may be in renewable heat, electricity or transport, and may include projects for self-supply to a discrete facility.
Applications are opened today 19th May until Friday, 19 June 2020. The winners will be announced later in October.
