Energy Innovations

Energy

Energy plays a key role in the development of human society. In the industrialized world, the development, consumption and management of energy resources is essential to the global economy. All economic activity requires the use of energy whether it is to manufacture goods and services, run machines and computers, or provide transportation and electricity. Since the industrial revolution however, the consumption of energy in society has catapulted leading to a large number of serious issues. Some of which, such as global warming and depletion of fossil fuels, present potentially severe risks to the world.

The value of energy to society and the importance of conserving our energy resources, discovering greener energy sources, and consuming energy in a sustainable manner is evident. The energy innovations sector of the MJF Awards thus welcomes innovations ranging from research concepts and ideas to technical issues and industrial applications, that are encouraged from, but not limited to, the themes and topics in the following areas:

  • Energy Efficiency
  • Renewable Energy
  • Smart Technologies
  • Measurement: Instrumentation, control, management, recording, inspection, monitoring, smart meters
  • Transmission and distribution
