Judging procedure

Entries for the EI Awards are peer-reviewed by an independent panel of respected industry experts. The judging is done in two main stages:

Stage 1 - Shortlisting entries
The judges review each of the submission forms. Entry statements of between 500 and 1000 words will be assessed against the specific criteria for that category. The judges will put together a shortlist of the strongest entries for each of the nine categories.

Stage 2- Selecting the winners
The winners for each category are decided at a panel meeting held in July. The Head Judge for each category will put forward their recommendation for the winning entry and the panel will deliberate over which entries are the most worthy winners, as well as nominate a winner to receive the Energy Excellence Award. Winners are revealed at the Awards Dinner.
