The countdown has begun for entering the Carbon Trust Scotland's Energy Efficiency in Manufacturing Award 2012, with only a few weeks to go until the deadline of 24 February 2012.
Paul Wedgwood, manager, Carbon Trust Scotland, commented: "The Energy Efficiency in Manufacturing Award is a great opportunity for engineers and project managers in the manufacturing sector to showcase usually unsung activities - not just to their peers but also to customers, suppliers and competitors. We know there are a great deal of energy efficiency and carbon reduction projects currently underway, helping to save on overheads, create a better working environment for staff and even increase output efficiency. Now is the time to champion these activities."
The winner and finalists will be announced at the Scottish Engineering Dinner in Glasgow in May 2012.
The Carbon Trust Scotland Energy Efficiency in Manufacturing Award aims to seek out and publicise energy efficiency projects that have made a significant and lasting impact on a manufacturing organisation's ongoing business performance.
The winner of this award will not only be able to demonstrate a long-term effect on their business, but also a sound energy management practice that filters throughout the organisation. The award will be based on the following criteria:
- The energy cost savings achieved by the company and the impact of the project on the applicant's competitive position.
- The project's long terms sustainability and the framework within which the project sits, such as the company's overall energy policy.
- The quality of the plans and programmes to implement those policies and the monitoring, reporting and control procedures in place to maintain improvements.
The deadline for organisations to enter the Energy Efficiency in Manufacturing Award is 5pm on Friday 24 February 2012.
