In support of the nation’s just energy transition and sustainable development goals, the Ministry of Natural Resources, Environment, and Climate Change today announced the call for submissions for the National Energy Award (NEA) 2024, the country’s highest honour for organisations and projects that have implemented game-changing sustainable energy initiatives and practises.
Offering a total of 18 awards across 3 categories of energy management, energy-efficient buildings and renewable energy, NEA 2024, is open to eligible Malaysian companies, organisations, and individuals, that are paving the way in adopting sustainable energy practices, achieving new benchmarks in energy efficiency, energy management, and innovative renewable energy solutions.
A dedicated category has also been created to recognise the efforts of energy performance contracting projects, institutions of higher learning as well as domestic, international, and financial institutions for the provision of sustainable energy financing solutions.
NEA 2024 provides an important avenue for organisations to support the Government’s strategic efforts to further increase public awareness and industry participation in sustainable energy initiatives. It also serves to identify Malaysian champions to compete against regional peers at the prestigious annual ASEAN Energy Awards (AEA), to be held in the last quarter of 2024.
The past six years have seen NEA continue to attract increasing participation with over 849 organisations submitting entries. Winners of NEA qualify to represent Malaysia at the ASEAN Energy Awards, the region’s highest recognition for the adoption of sustainable practices, with 12 Malaysian organisations winning this year at the recently concluded ceremony in Bali.
The call for submissions for NEA 2024 will be opened until 23 February 2024 and submissions must be received before the deadline.
