Smart Energy Decisions Launches DEI Impact Awards

PORTLAND, Maine

Smart Energy Decisions (SED), the first web-based information resource dedicated to addressing the information needs of large power customers, today introduced its DEI Impact Awards program.

“Our goal in launching the DEI Impact Awards is to help recognize the accomplishments of diverse groups within the renewable energy community,” said Wes Doane, VP, Clean Energy Group (Smart Energy Decisions). “We’re thrilled to be able to highlight the company-wide efforts by large power users to advance DEI across all areas—and look forward to celebrating their achievements at a special awards ceremony on September 20 at Net Zero Forum Fall.”

The DEI Impact Awards will focus on the impact of energy and sustainability programs, recognizing achievements across race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, persons with disabilities, gender identity, and beliefs.
