Building Energy Project of the Year - RAC Cooling Industry Awards 2020
The impact of air conditioning, heat pumps and controls on a building’s energy is a key area for the industry and this category is designed to reflect this importance. Nominations are invited for projects involving air conditioning, heat pumps or controls (or a combination of the three), where the end result has been a significant reduction in building energy.
The judges will be looking for solutions that push forward the boundaries, either through developments in conventional approaches or the use of novel methods or technology, but merit will be given to projects that seek an integrated approach. The award will go to the project team, including (where relevant) manufacturer, designer, consultant, client and contractors.
Data showing operational performance should be provided.
NB For installations, the project must be completed and some tangible results produced.
In 1,000 words or less, please tell the judges why your entry should win. Successful finalists will be invited to pitch to judges in the face-to-face round in July.

Please consider some or all of the following in your entry:
- A clear description of the project and technologies involved
- In what way is this innovative or distinctive?

Use the criteria above as a guide, but any extra detail that will help your entry should be included. Additional material can be provided as attachments for reference, but the essential elements of the entry should be kept within the 1,000-words. Please do not simply attach the whole entry as a pdf!
