POWERGRID International magazine is celebrating excellence in the electric power industry by again recognizing outstanding power projects at our annual Projects of the Year Awards.
The annual Projects of the Year Awards are distributed to the best projects in four categories:
· Smart Grid Project of the Year
· Customer Engagement Project of the Year
· Demand Response / Energy Efficiency Project of the Year
· Renewable Grid Integration Project of the Year
In addition, Electric Light & Power magazine is accepting nominations for its CEO of the Year Awards for small-utility and large utility CEO.
Any interested party, whether involved with the project or not, may submit an entry for consideration.
The awards will be presented at the Electric Light & Power and POWERGRID International magazines Awards Reception and Dinner.
All companies involved in transmission and/or distribution of electric power are eligible, including investor-owned utilities, federal power agencies, municipal utilities and rural electric cooperatives. Also eligible are RTOs, ISOs, independent transmission companies, and other T&D-owning/operating entities.
Submit an entry form along with a description of the project/implementation (1,000 words maximum). Project description must include history of the project, project details, major participants (customer, vendor, consultants, etc.), and reasons the project/implementation should be considered for Project of the Year. Include significant dates (contract signing, project start, project completion/go-live date) in the project description.
