“After two successful presentation ceremonies, the award has developed further, just like the digital solutions in the sector. That's why the Digital Energy Award 2018 will honour digital solutions, not just apps”, commented Stefanie Hamm, Managing Director of E-world energy & water. E-world energy & water GmbH, con|energy, Google and innogy are behind the organisation of this industry prize.
Fascinating, innovative and disruptive solutions are sought in three categories: “Customer Engagement”, “New Business Models” and “Lean Operations”. “Customer Engagement” rewards particularly client-friendly solutions, which make the user’s day-to-day life easier. “New Business Models” is oriented towards digital solutions, which facilitate new and sustainable business models, partnerships or cooperation. In the category “Lean Operations”, the jurors will honour developments, which make processes easier through automation, process efficiency or agile organisational development.
The jury will make its assessments based on the criteria “technology”, “concept”, “business impact” and “story”, taking into account current industry developments. The catalogue of criteria, based on which the winners are selected, ensures that the ideas submitted are considered holistically. The eight jurors include Dr Roman Dudenhausen, CEO of con|energy ag, Carl-Ernst Giesting, Senior Vice President of innogy SE and Stephanie Hamm, the Managing Director of E-world energy & water GmbH. The committee also includes Markus Hinz, Sales Director, and Markus Mühlbauer, Product Manager Lead for Corporate Engineering, of Google Germany. Other members are Jens Michael Peters, COO of eprimo and Head of Digital innogy Germany, Kuldip Singh, Digital Director of innogy Retail and Veit Scherm, Managing Director of ener|xess, a company in the con|energy group.
The award recipients will be announced on the second day of the E-world energy & water trade fair, 7 February 2018, and the award conferred within the setting of this European trade fair for the energy industry.
Energy supply companies, public utilities companies, advertising agencies, IT agencies and individual applicants are invited to participate. Applications will be accepted until 1 December 2017.
