2020 Energynomics Awards – The Essentials

03 Dec 2020 @ 18:00 - 21:00

Energynomics.ro invites you to the 8th edition of the Energynomics Awards for the Romanian energy industry! The flagship event of energynomics.ro will reunite, on December 3rd this year, dozens of high representatives of the most important and most dynamic companies in the Romanian energy industry in ONLINE format to celebrate performance, resilience and ingenuity in the Romanian energy industry!.

The 8th edition of the Gala Awards organized by Energynomics will register the changes and progress after the rush in the business and in the administration, to open the holiday season, and start on drafting the plans for 2021!


Once again, we will point to the performers of the year. All the sectors – electricity, O&G, renewable, thermo, and mining, and all the themes – energy efficiency, smart energy, M&A, investments, will be revealed in the right light and in cold balance.

In many respects, 2020 made us all philosophers of a kind. As the world has been changing around us, it became mandatory to accept changes inside, too. This forced us into the essentials, and first of all we re-discovered the importance of continuity. ‘Keep going and deliver the promise’ was the mantra for most of the people and organizations this year, because there are so many others depending on us, and because we care.

It was rough, and it burdened us, even more, with the responsibility of focusing on the key assets; cut what is expendable for being able to maintain the overall purpose. At the same time, prepare for the next blow – for it is certain it will come, and you’d better have the resources ready to respond and to adapt for whatever is just around the corner.

Thus, the theme of the 2020 Energynomics Awards Gala is “The Essentials”.
