Nominations open for Best Energy-Smart Initiative by a Local Authority
23rd August, 2013
Codema is delighted to announce that we have joined forces with the LAMA Community & Council Awards 2014 by sponsoring a brand new category which aims to recognise pioneering or innovative approaches to sustainable energy. This can range from a unique energy awareness campaign, a forward-thinking approach to retrofitting, inclusion of renewable energy technology, improvements to existing energy-management techniques, novel ways of communicating energy information or the implementation of an ambitious energy management policy. By promoting the use of energy in an intelligent and advanced way, this category recognises the efforts by a local authority (either council-wide, by department or even by an individual) to become more energy-smart in how it operates on a day-to-day basis, with demonstrated savings in energy.
The project should be exemplary in its field and should be easily replicated in other organisations. We are running this award as part of the local implementation of the INTERREG IVB Ace Awards and the overall winner of this category will be automatically shortlisted for the grand finale which will recognise sustainable energy achievements throughout North-West Europe
The LAMA Community and Council Awards highlight and reward community and councils together, bringing national recognition to projects and developments that may otherwise go unnoticed.
There are many excellent energy-smart projects being carried out in local authorities across Ireland so make sure your efforts get the recognition they deserve by getting your nomination in ASAP!

Best of luck!
