SECOND SINGAPORE ENERGY AWARD NOW OPEN

Nominations for the second edition of EMA’s biennial Singapore Energy Award are open until 30 April 2015.

The Award continues its aim to recognise organisations and individuals who have made outstanding contributions to Singapore’s energy sector, through achievements in the areas of capabilities development and innovation.

Under the two existing award categories, “Organisation” and “Individual”, companies, research institutes, professionals, entrepreneurs and young individuals (including students) across the full energy spectrum will be recognised. This ranges from power utilities to emerging sectors such as renewable energy.

All qualified submissions will be reviewed through a two-tier process comprising assessments by an Evaluation Committee and a Judging Panel. The Evaluation Committee will assess the submissions and submit a shortlist of nominees to the Judging Panel, which will then review and select the award winners. The submissions will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  1. Establishing benchmarks and/or models in capabilities development and/or innovation;
  2. Exhibiting outstanding leadership and governance through vision and dedication in transforming the energy sector and community;
  3. Sharing of knowledge that benefits industry stakeholders and/or social communities; and
  4. Demonstrating successful implementation, taking into account scalability and sustainability of initiatives.

At 2013’s inaugural Award, the “Individual” category went to Mr Quek Poh Huat, Senior Adviser for Singapore Power, while Senoko Energy took home the “Organisation” win. A “Special Mention” was given to Energy Carta, a non-profit student body.
