The unique and distinguished Excellence Awards categories include:
- Excellence in Resourcefulness—Energy: This Excellence in Resourcefulness award recognizes either an IOU or municipal's ability to conduct successful technology implementation and behavioral change, producing results in reducing significant waste of electricity and/or natural gas.
- Excellence in Resourcefulness—Water: This Excellence in Resourcefulness award applauds a utility's method for addressing resourcefulness through successful technology implementation and behavioral change that results in significant reduction of water usage and water waste.
For the award selection process, Frost & Sullivan will conduct in-depth research interviews and evaluate utilities against industry best practices and the decision criteria, including societal and business impact, for each category.
Indicators for societal impact include improving customer awareness and participation, enabling behavioral change to reduce waste through customer engagement and technology-driven programs, and yielding impressive waste reduction results that benefit the overall served community. Business impact indicators include drafting a clear vision to address excessive waste through technology implementation, achieving operational effectiveness as a result of a successful strategy for sustainability, and strengthening a utility's brand image as a leader for sustainability.
"This assessment recognizes the efforts of utilities that are taking a proactive and resourceful approach toward securing energy and water for generations to come," said Farah Saeed, Digital Grids Director at Frost & Sullivan.
