The awards have been set up by the State Government to encourage conservation activity in the State. The EMC operates the scheme.
Applications are invited in five categories, an official spokesperson said. Winners in the large-to-medium energy consumers will receive an award and a citation.
Those in small-scale energy consumers, energy conservation promoters and individual buildings will receive an award and a cash prize of Rs. 50,000.

(iii) Small-scale consumers with annual energy consumption of up to 150 ToE
(iv) Energy conservation promoters including local bodies, NGOs, research and innovation, individuals and organisations.
(v) Commercial buildings and public buildings – new and retrofits, including hotels and hospitals.
The qualifying period for the award is the previous financial year from April 1, 2013, to March 31, 2014.
However, as conservation efforts require longer period for implementation in some cases, the work done in immediate past three financial years will also be reviewed.
