Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) Awards are presented to energy professionals who have achieved international, national, regional, or local prominence in their fields. Candidates for awards may nominate themselves or be nominated by another individual who is an AEE member in good standing, an AEE chapter, or an AEE officer. Entries must be received by April 30.

Award winners are saluted formally at special awards presentation ceremonies, receive distinctive AEE plaques commemorating their achievements, and are recognized in issues of AEE newsletters.

Entries are invited in any of the categories in the international, regional, or chapter competitions. Multiple categories may be entered. Each award addresses a unique area, and submittals should describe a nominee's proficiency in that category.

The nomination of an individual should include a description of the nominee's work, including short, descriptive summaries of specific projects or programs he or she has worked on, including innovative projects, substantiated savings, etc. Because the awards are based on installed and successful projects, future plans and goals are not considered.

The nomination of a project should include a description of the project type, equipment installed, operating results, substantiated savings (cost savings and energy savings), financial data, or special features. Because the awards are based on installed and successful projects, future plans and goals are not considered.
