“The program excited us with the level of variety and innovation we saw in its first year,” says Paul Nastu, publisher of Energy Manager Today parent company Business Sector Media. “Our judges were impressed by both the number of submissions and the caliber of the entries, and they enjoyed seeing the broad spectrum of how energy reductions and savings are being achieved.”
Energy management is a cutting-edge field in which to be operating today; the winners here prove that innovations are opening up vast new areas of potential for improvement, and that companies are capitalizing on those opportunities in exciting and impressive ways. The innovations here show that the positives to be gleaned from successful energy management strategies are endless, and endlessly varied. Entries that were awarded Top Product or Project of the Year are those that the judges feel should be carefully considered by companies seeking to improve their own operations in a similar manner.

With rapid advancements and a continuous rate of change in the field, energy professionals have a notoriously difficult time knowing what products to choose to help their companies increase energy savings and improve energy performance. The Energy Manager Today Awards give companies a solid base of products, vetted by experts, from which to choose, as well as a variety of projects to illustrate how successful initiatives in energy management are helping companies improve.
