Nominations Open for Energy Management Leadership Awards!

Deadline: 31 January 2019

The Clean Energy Ministerial is seeking nominations for its Energy Management Leadership Awards to recognize leading organizations for their energy management achievements and raise the profile of the ISO 50001 energy management system as a proven, broadly applicable solution to global energy and climate challenges.

Categories

  • CEM Award of Excellence for Energy Management: The winners will be honored at the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM10), which takes place in Canada in May 2019. The Award of Excellence recognizes not only achieved savings but also organizations’ efforts to transform the way they are using energy. The awards aim to acknowledge organizations of various sizes, types, sectors, and geographies.
  • National Energy Management Awards: Governments may honor organizations submitting top entries from their countries.
  • Energy Management Insight Awards: All qualifying entries will receive this recognition for helping to build global insight on the benefits of energy management systems.

Eligibility Criteria

Any organization from around the world in the industrial, commercial, or public sector certified to ISO 50001 is eligible to participate:

  • ISO 50001 certificates must be issued by a third-party certification bodies that are accredited by Accreditation Bodies that are members of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF). Learn more about accredited certification bodies in the FAQs. A copy of this certificate must be included with the submittal of each case study; expired certificates are not accepted.
  • Entries may feature ISO 50001 implementation at a corporate level, multi-site, or single facility, as noted on the ISO 50001 certificate. Entries at any of these levels (corporate, multi-site, or single facility) are welcome and encouraged. If you choose to submit a case study that addresses a corporate energy management system with multiple sites included within the scope of the ISO 50001 certificate, the case study entered needs to cover the entire full scope of the certification. If you submit a case study describing ISO 50001 implementation and results for multiple sites, a copy of each relevant site’s ISO 50001 certificate is required. View more guidance on corporate and multi-site entries in the FAQs.
  • Energy performance improvement results must be included case studies. Projected results are not accepted.
  • For organizations that have participated in this awards program in previous years:
    • Previous award recipients may enter the 2019 awards program if the scope and boundaries of the EnMS have changed (e.g., an expanded scope from single facility to multiple or certification of a different facility within the organization) or after recertification to ISO 50001. The program does not accept re-entry of case studies that received awards from this program in past years (i.e., revised versions of case studies that address the same scope and boundaries and include the same ISO 50001 certificates).
    • Organizations that have previously won an Award of Excellence in Energy Management are not eligible for the 2019 Award of Excellence but are eligible to receive an Insight Award.
