The unique and distinguished Excellence in Resourcefulness Awards categories include:
- Excellence in Resourcefulness–Energy: The Excellence in Resourcefulness Award recognizes a utility or city’s ability to successfully implement technology and/or behavioral change in a way that measurably reduces electricity and/or natural gas waste.
- Excellence in Resourcefulness–Water: The Excellence in Resourcefulness Award recognizes a utility or city’s ability to successfully implement technology and/or behavioral change in a way that measurably reduces water loss or waste.
“Climate disruption and an aging infrastructure have exposed clear threats to the integrity of our water and electric infrastructures, and the number of regions immune to these threats is shrinking. Recently, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change raised the alarm that drastic reduction of GHG is needed to remain below threshold of 1.5°C to avoid irreversible damage caused by climate change. This is forcing cities, municipalities, and utilities to take proactive steps to implement climate mitigation as well as climate adaption strategies.” said Farah Saeed, energy advisory research director at Frost & Sullivan.
For each award category, Frost & Sullivan’s selection process includes in-depth research and interviews followed by evaluating utilities and cities against industry best practices and the decision criteria, including societal and business impact.
Societal impact indicators include improving customer awareness and participation, enabling behavioral change to reduce waste through customer engagement and technology-driven programs, and yielding impressive waste reduction that benefits the overall served community.
Business impact indicators include drafting a clear vision to address excessive waste through technology implementation, achieving operational effectiveness through a successful sustainability strategy, and strengthening a utility’s or city’s brand image as a sustainability leader.
Frost & Sullivan will contact nominees for the interview portion of the selection process. The winners in each category will be announced and recognized on Wednesday, October 25 at Itron Inspire.
