Global Energy Show Awards

The Global Energy Show announces winners of the nine categories of the Global Energy Show Awards. Launched in 2015, the Global Energy Show Awards serve to celebrate the leaders who drive change and shine a spotlight on excellence.

The Global Energy Show Awards recognize and honour accomplishments of companies, individuals, initiatives, projects and technologies on an international scale and promote advancement within the energy industry.

“It is important to not only celebrate the incredible innovation that happens in energy, but the level of commitment and daily action industry takes to achieve the highest level of excellence,” said Damarys Zampini, President & CEO of Sustrategy and member of the Awards Judging Panel.

In April, the Global Energy Show made the difficult decision to postpone the event until 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The annual exhibition and conference hosts more than 53,000 local and international delegates, with over 500 attending the annual Awards Gala.

The 2020 Global Energy Show Awards received an overwhelming response in nine categories from companies, organizations and individuals who are making everlasting impact across the energy landscape. The Awards were judged by a panel of industry experts based on award criteria, merit and outstanding achievement.
