Under the visionary guidance of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, The Dubai Supreme Council of Energy sets specific measures to enhance demand efficiency (water, power and fuel transportation).

The significant increase in the demand for energy consumption and its subsequent impact on the environment and economy in the region necessitated effective measures to improve energy efficiency and to diversify the energy mix in the region for sustainable growth.

The Emirates Energy Award aims to increase awareness amongst individuals, organizations and the community to drive sustainable development, not only in the UAE but also in the Middle East and North Africa.

The award will be organized every two years, beginning in 2012 and is intended for a wide spectrum of best practices in energy and resource management to drive the following values:

1.Creativity & Innovation - in terms of demonstrated systems and processes influencing energy technologies and opportunities with potential for further development and transferability to others.

2.Energy Efficiency/Carbon Foot Print Reduction - representing reduction of specific energy consumption through best practices in recycling and reuse, retrofitting inefficient equipment and new projects in the usage of energy and reduction in other resources including material and carbon emission reduction (CO2).

3.Increase of Renewable Energy share in energy source portfolio - use of renewable energy such as solar, wind, biomass, biogas and other cleaner energy sources and gradual reduction of dependence on non-renewable energy sources.

4.Economical, Social, Energy Security, Behavioral & Environmental Impact - potential to delivering significant benefits including improvements in quality of life, influencing behavior, cutting greenhouse gas emissions and supporting sustainable energy, in addition, to building knowledge capacity and corporate social responsibility.

The EEA commences in 2012 and applications for entry are invited by all relevant and interested organizations and individuals. The award is managed by The Supreme Council of Energy, which reviews and conducts the award assessment and selection based on specific criteria.

Applications can be submitted here.
