Competition open to find the most outstanding people and projects in smart energy

European Utility Industry Awards are set to honour the brightest in the sector

Utrecht, The Netherlands 19th July 2016 - The European Utility Industry Awards hosted by European Utility Week (EUW) and Engerati, is now open for entries. The annual awards recognise the most outstanding individuals and projects in the smart energy sector.


Entrants will battle to win one of five awards critical to areas of today's energy industry. The categories include: The Community Energy Award, The Energy Management Award, The Energy Retail Award, The Energy Revolution Award and The Grid Intelligence Award. Entries are now being accepted via the Engerati - European Utility Awards website.

Adam Malik, Content and Digital Development Director at Engerati, said: "The power of the community will build on last year's success and deliver a truly democratic voting process and award ceremony."

The two-stage voting process will see applications reviewed and voted for by the 28,000 strong Engerati community. Five shortlisted entries per category will then make it through to the second round - the judging panel where four industry experts per category will select and rank their top three entries and the votes will be counted via an independent notary.

Mr Malik, adds: "By putting the spotlight on this year's most outstanding smart energy projects, we can help drive sustainable development goals. The community aspect further brings global smart energy expertise together, putting the decision back into the hands of the industry."

Last year's winners included Schneider Electric for The Sustainable Development Award, Vandebron for The Smart Community Award, UK Power Networks for The Industry Innovation Award, Ovo Energy for The Utility Initiative award and Tobias Linnenberg, for The Young Innovator Award.

Entries are open until 30th September 2016. Winners will be announced on the opening night of European Utility Week, during a glittering awards ceremony and networking dinner. European Utility Week is an annual event connecting the smart utility industry. This year's event will take place from 15th - 17th November 2016 at Fira Barcelona Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain.

If you are working on a project in the sustainable energy sector that you think deserves to be recognised, submit an entry via the Engerati website.

Register to attend the most notable utility event of the year, and be a part of the global smart utility community at European Utility Week.
