The Energy Efficiency in Manufacturing Award 2012, organised by the Carbon Trust Scotland, aims to highlight and reward energy efficiency projects in Scotland that have made a significant and continuing impact on an organisation's business performance.
The winner of this award will not only be able to demonstrate a lasting effect on business performance, but also a sound energy management practice that filters throughout the organisation. In order to ensure that both issues are recognised with equal importance, the award will be based on the following criteria:
- The qualities and impact of a single project or group of linked projects that forms the basis of the application
- The applicant's ongoing energy management policies and practices.
Project description (40%)
- Describe the nature of the project, setting out implementation costs, savings and payback periods. The judges will be looking to reward innovative projects the offer the opportunity for repeatability and that deliver sustainable savings.
- In order to ensure equity across all types and sizes of applicants, the judges will award marks for the impact in business performance based on the percentage reduction in energy bills delivered by the project and its impact on organisation/site/unit turnover. In order to benefit applicants will need to state their organisation/site/unit's annual energy bill and turnover
Company Policy (15%)
- In order to execute good quality energy management, it is essential for senior management to commit to reducing energy costs and implementing robust energy management policies. Items that will be considered by the judges will include senior management commitment, the overall energy policy and arrangements for funding energy efficiency projects.
Energy management practice (15%)
- To be effective, sound energy polices need robust 'on the ground' arrangements and activities to deliver energy efficiency savings. Items that will be considered by the judges include staffing commitment, the energy management plan and wider staff awareness activities.
Monitoring and reporting (15%)
- The ongoing monitoring and reporting of energy management performance and progression allows areas for improvement to be identified. In this section the judges will consider the monitoring, reporting and scrutiny arrangements.
