In partnership with Frost & Sullivan, Itron is now accepting nominations for the 2020 Excellence in Resourcefulness Awards. The awards recognize utilities and municipalities who are committed to the sustainable use of energy and water.

The award categories include:

  • Excellence in Resourcefulness – Energy: This Excellence in Resourcefulness Award recognizes a utility or city’s ability to successfully implement technology and behavioral change, producing measurable outcomes in reducing waste of electricity and/or natural gas.
  • Excellence in Resourcefulness – Water: This Excellence in Resourcefulness Award recognizes a utility or city’s ability to successfully implement technology and behavioral change, producing measurable outcomes in reducing water loss or waste.

Frost & Sullivan will select a winner in each category after conducting in-depth research, interviews and evaluating utilities against industry best practices. Decision criteria for each category includes societal and business impact.

Considerations for societal impact include improving customer awareness and participation, enabling behavioral change to reduce waste through customer engagement and technology-driven programs, and yielding impressive waste-reduction results that benefit the overall served community. Business impact indicators include drafting a clear vision to address excessive waste through technology implementation, achieving operational effectiveness as a result of a successful strategy for sustainability, and strengthening a utility or city’s brand image as a leader for sustainability.
