The Energynomics Awards are celebrated annually, starting in 2013. The Awards have a symbolic character, i.e. it is a non-financial award. The awards aim to promote approaches, ideas and people with outstanding achievements that can be ascribed to one of the categories below. To respond to new dynamics in the energy market, from 2023 we introduced two new categories (marked with a different shade of blue). We have also decided to extend the scope of the Award for career achievements and rename it.
