Congratulations to our great partner, Smart Power, on a potential Global Energy Award
Good job, Brian, and the incredible Smart Power Team. Good luck.
We’d Like To Thank The Academy… SmartPower Chosen as a Finalist for Prestigious Global Energy Award
Each year when the Academy Award nominations are announced there’s a lot of buzz about what an honor it is just to be nominated. Well now we know exactly how they feel. Because that’s how we felt with the recent news that SmartPower is a “finalist” for the 16th Annual Platts Global Energy Awards. If this is the Academy Awards of Energy, we truly are honored just to be nominated! Chosen from a pool of over 250 nominations from more than 25 countries, our energy efficiency behavior program, The Rhode Island Energy Challenge: Find Your Four campaign is a finalist for one of Platt’s “Stewardship Awards”. You may recall that The Rhode Island Energy Challenge is a program we run in partnership with National Grid to reduce residential energy use. The Stewardship Award recognizes businesses or organizations that have demonstrated "significant commitment to affecting positive change in philosophies, behaviors and/or policies through specific initiatives or programs utilizing existing resources and technologies." This is exactly what we do in our "Find Your Four" campaign, leveraging the resources of municipal, business and non-profit partners to engage their residents, employees and members to take positive energy action. A panel of judges, including past heads of major energy companies, leading academics and international energy experts, will select the winners of each award. The winners will be honored at a black-tie event on Thursday, December 11, 2014, at the Waldorf Austria in New York City. It’s an honor just to be nominated. Still, I hope to see you there! Brian F.
