Smart Energy Decisions is proud to present the inaugural WISE Awards to celebrate Women in Smart Energy.
Women are doing important work in energy and sustainability, yet they remain underrecognized and underrepresented. We want to bring to the fore their significant, influential achievements as a way to recognize their role in the energy transition and to encourage other women - and men - to be inspired by their accomplishments.
For the inaugural program, women representing large electric power users (energy customers) may be nominated by their co-workers, peers at other organizations, or supplier partners for their achievements in energy and sustainability; they may also nominate themselves.
Nominations will be accepted by Smart Energy Decisions through January 19, 2022. Click here for more information.
