CHAPTER AWARDS


 

AWARDS BACKGROUND:

Who is Eligible?

AEE Awards are presented to energy professionals who have achieved regional prominence in their fields. Candidates for awards may be nominated by themselves, another individual who is also a GPAEE member in good standing, or by an officer of the Association of Energy Engineers.

Behind the GPAEE Awards

Through its Awards Program, GPAEE recognizes achievers in the fields that we serve.  Winners are formally saluted at a special awards presentation, which takes place during the January GPAEE Meeting. At this special awards presentation, the GPAEE Award winners receive distinctive GPAEE plaques commemorating their achievements. In addition, the GPAEE Award winners are recognized in future GPAEE Newsletters.

General Criteria

Each GPAEE Award addresses a unique category. Therefore, each nomination ballot submittal should describe the nominee's proficiency in that specific category. The nomination of an individual should include a description of the nominee's work in the field, e.g. innovative projects, substantiated savings, etc. [Note: Future plans and goals are not considered]. The nomination of a project should include a description of the type of project, equipment installed, operating results, financial data, or special features.

Deadline for Nominations

Nomination ballots must be received by December 1st.

How Nominations are processed

Nomination ballots are first screened in order to verify eligibility. Each ballot is then individually evaluated according to official judging criteria. Nominations for these categories are judged.
