The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) is calling on communities, businesses, organisations, and individuals that are championing sustainable energy to enter the SEAI Energy Awards 2021. Now in their 18th year, the SEAI Energy Awards reward those individuals and organisations who really push the boundaries in energy efficiency best practice, innovative renewables, awareness raising and inspiring others.
The SEAI launched the Awards today at the SEAI Energy Show. Speaking at the launch, Fergus Sharkey, Head of Business and Public Sector with the SEAI said:
“More than ever, it is imperative that Ireland use less energy, move away from fossil fuels, and take advantage of innovative energy solutions to address the climate crisis. The good news is there are already communities, businesses, individuals, and organisations blazing a trail for the rest of us to follow.
The SEAI Energy Awards celebrate these champions and leaders. We showcase their achievements, hopefully inspiring others to act. If you believe that you, your community, or your organisation is among these leaders I strongly encourage you to enter the SEAI Energy Awards 2021 so we can celebrate your achievements.”
Entries can include any combination of electricity, heat, or transport energy use. There are nine categories to choose from including Large Business; Small and Medium Business; Public Sector; Energy Community; Buildings; Renewable Energy; and Energy Manager or Team. The winner of the Research and Innovation category will receive a bursary of up to €10,000.
The SEAI is also seeking entries to the Emerging Sustainable Energy Champion category. This category recognises the extraordinary work of young people around Ireland to promote sustainable energy, a key pillar of climate action.
The closing date for entries is Friday, 18 June 2021. The winners will be announced in October. For further information and details on how to enter the 2021 SEAI Energy Awards visit www.seai.ie/energyawards
