The Canadian Electricity Association (CEA) has announced the winners of the 2014 Sustainable Electricity Awards.

The fifth annual award program recognized companies with innovative sustainable approached to challenges in the energy sector across the country. Submissions were judged by an independent panel and the winners are:

  • Environmental Commitment Award—Hydro Ottawa for the environmental sustainability strategy and results;
  • Social Responsibility Award—Ontario Power Generation (OPG) for the partnerships built with First Nations and Métis communities; and
  • Economic Excellence Award—BC Hydro and Power Authority in recognition of developing and implementing modular diesel-generating stations (MDGS) in remote communities.

“The electricity industry has a vision for the future that depends on sustainable initiatives like these,” said CEA’s Jim Burpee. “As our electricity system is being modernized to keep up with transformative changes in our society, these awards spotlight examples of tangible commitments by CEA member utilities to deliver maximum value to customers and citizens and to contribute to a lower carbon economy.”
