Showcase SA clean energy successes in Energy Management Leadership Awards 2016
The National Cleaner Production Centre of South Africa (NCPC-SA) and the South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI), encourage our partners that have earned certification in the ISO 50001 standard to enter the new global Energy Management Leadership Awards 2016. Winners will be honoured at the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM7) meeting in June 2016. This high-profile event will gather clean energy leaders and partners from around the world, including energy ministers from the 24 governments active in CEM.
Companies and organisations who implement ISO 50001 certified energy managements systems are encouraged to enter the 2016 Energy Management Leadership Awards. The awards programme is sponsored by the Energy Management Working Group (EMWG) of the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM), which is an active group of forward-thinking energy ministers from around the world. South Africa is a member of the EWMG.
Any organisation that holds a current, third-party-verified ISO 50001 certificate is eligible to enter the competition. Each organization will need to submit a copy of their ISO 50001 certificate and a structured case study of their EnMS experience, which will be scored by an independent panel of experts.
