SEAI has started the search for sustainable energy leaders with the announcement of the SEAI Sustainable Energy Awards for 2017. These awards recognise and reward excellence in energy efficiency and renewable energy, and are open to organisations, businesses and communities who are who are setting new standards in the reduction of fossil fuel use.
The Awards encourage entries with innovative approaches and high replication potential from applicants across the island of Ireland. New to the 2017 Awards programme is a bursary of €10,000 for the winner of the Research Category, to further their research activity. There are eight categories in all, including large business, small business, design, public sector, community and energy manager or team.
Majella Kelleher, Head of Energy Demand Management at SEAI, said: “There is excellent work happening in sustainable energy across our economy and the SEAI Awards are a great opportunity for businesses, public bodies and communities to get recognition for outstanding energy achievements. Energy efficiency makes financial as well as environmental sense, and there is growing interest in the delivery of cleaner sources of energy across both industry and communities as we move Ireland towards a low-carbon society. I strongly encourage people and businesses to enter the SEAI Sustainable Energy Awards 2017 to highlight their own success and encourage others to take part.”
Last year, entrants to the Awards demonstrated savings of €100 million through innovative sustainable energy projects. This year the Awards have three category sponsors — Enprova (Public Sector), ESB Smart Energy Services (Large Business – Energy Management) and Gas Networks Ireland (Large Business – Energy Project).
Visit www.seai.ie/energyawards for further information. Closing date for entries is Friday, 9 June 2017. The winners will be announced at a gala event in November 2017.
