The AEE SoCal Awards recognizes excellence and innovation in energy management, energy efficiency and alternative energy solutions in Southern California. 

All nominations must focus on accomplishments achieved with commercial, institutional or industrial facilities or projects. Nominators and nominees do not have to be Chapter members or projects connected to Chapter members. Anyone that feels they or their project are prospects for an AEE SoCal Award are strongly encouraged to nominate themselves and/or their own projects. 

The Qualification Summary submitted with an award nomination should describe a nominee’s worthiness for the award and provide supporting details and documentation. Factors to highlight in the description can include a leadership role in the efficient and effective use of energy, projects successfully undertaken, substantiated financial savings, implementation of energy efficiency procedures and hurdles that were overcome. Future plans and goals are not considered.

For the Energy Project Award, type of project, equipment installed, operating results, financial data, environmental gains and/or special features should be indicated.

Entries are screened to verify eligibility. Each entry is then individually evaluated according to official judging criteria. Entries are judged by an Awards Committee composed of experienced and qualified energy/environmental professionals. The Committee reserves the right to withhold awards in any category where nominees do not meet expected levels of performance. The decision of the Committee is final.
