The New York Chapter

The New York Chapter supports AEE ideals through educational programs and industry-recognition awards conducted throughout the New York region. The chapter represents hundreds of energy professionals, and is growing. Meetings take place on the third Tuesday of each month from September through June at New York Institute of Technology in Manhattan. Topics range from technical to policy issues. A June gala recognizes the industry's best projects and professionals.

 


MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT | April 17th: Proactive Maintenance

 

Announcement | Chapter Award Nominations

We all know that there are many top notch professionals working in our midst and excellent projects that have been undertaken either by our own organizations or a colleague's/client. Each year the New York Chapter of AEE takes time during it's June Gala to honor these top professionals and projects with Chapter Awards. Additionally after receiving a Chapter award, many of our awardees go on to receive Regional Awards; and for 21 of the past 23 years at least one of our prior Chapter Awardees has been selected by AEE to receive an International level award!

The award categories are:

  • Energy Engineer of the Year
  • Energy Project of the Year
  • Corporate or Institutional Energy Management of the Year
  • Energy Professional Development of the Year
  • Energy Manager of the Year
  • Innovative (Renewable) Energy Project of the Year
  • Innovative (Renewable) Energy Innovator of the Year
  • Young Energy Professional of the Year

If you know of a deserving project or professional please contact Fred Goldner, NY-AEE Awards Chairman (fgoldner@emra.com). He will guide you through the simple processes of identifying award category and making a submission. (We promise not a lot of paperwork!)

If you are interested the NY-AEE Board needs these nominations by Saturday, April 14th. A more detailed description of categories and the process appears below.


Also, whether or not you make a nomination make sure to mark the date in your calendar.

A highlight of every Chapter year is the award of honors at its festive "Gala," this year on June 19th. Experience the pleasure of seeing an individual you know receive recognition for their outstanding professional achievements or recent project!

(Look for the RSVP form in an upcoming NY-AEE email.)

DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES

Nominations must be received by April 14, 2018.

GENERAL CRITERIA

Each award addresses a unique area and submittals should describe nominee's proficiency in that category. Innovative project descriptions, substantiated savings, etc., should document descriptions of nominee's work in the field. Future plans and goals are not considered.

For project award, indicate type of project, equipment installed, operating results, financial data, or special features.

More specifically what we are looking for is to get a write-up - background on the individual or project - that gives us an idea of what that person has done that makes them stand out (as well as some more general background/experience stuff). We need at least a paragraph or two, and a page to a page and a half works as well. The latter gives us more material (that can be edited down) for the presentation.
