We’re proud to bring togeth­er the best ideas and tal­ent to dri­ve the trans­for­ma­tion to a clean­er, green­er world.”

Jury and prizes

The award win­ners were select­ed by a jury con­sist­ing of high-rank­ing indus­try experts. The inter­na­tion­al team of judges includes Devrim Celal (CEO, Krak­en­Flex), Elvi­ra Fab­rizio (SVP, Dig­i­tal & IT, Eni), Paul Mas­sara (Asso­ciate, Cre­ative Destruc­tion Lab), Dami­an Bun­yan (CIO, Uniper), Chris Fos­ter (Chief Infor­ma­tion and Inno­va­tion Offi­cer, TC Ener­gy), Jason Gis­la­son, (Chief Dig­i­tal Offi­cer, Chevron Phillips Chem­i­cal Com­pa­ny), Sandeep Par­mar (Gen­er­al Man­ag­er, Dig­i­tal Plat­forms & Oper­a­tions, Sun­cor), Milind God­bole (Glob­al Ener­gy Lead, Pub­li­cis Sapi­ent), Simon Har­vey (GVP Ener­gy & Com­modi­ties, EMEA, Pub­li­cis Sapi­ent), Oded Lavie (VP Inno­va­tion & Busi­ness Devel­op­ment, Pub­li­cis Sapi­ent), and Joseph Tabi­ta (Ener­gy Leader, EMEA & APAC, Pub­li­cis Sapient).

The win­ners will receive a show­case at VivaT­e­ch 2023, Europe’s largest start­up and tech event, and an edi­to­r­i­al fea­ture in WIRED mag­a­zine. In addi­tion, they can each expect a per­son­al men­tor­ing ses­sion with one of the jury mem­bers and a work­shop with Pub­li­cis Sapi­ent on the top­ic of scal­ing their prod­ucts and solutions.

“The star­tups that applied are chang­ing the ener­gy land­scape in impres­sive and pos­i­tive ways, and their solu­tions will make a big con­tri­bu­tion to com­pa­nies’ zero-CO2 ambi­tions,” said Joseph Tabi­ta, Ener­gy Leader, EMEA & APAC, Pub­li­cis Sapi­ent. “We saw some real­ly bril­liant solu­tions among the sub­mis­sions. The inno­v­a­tive ideas pen­e­trate the prob­lems of ener­gy com­pa­nies, con­sumers and the envi­ron­ment in detail and result in clever approach­es that can be adapt­ed for most geo­gra­phies. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all the win­ners and finalists.”

The low-car­bon web­site devel­oped for the Glob­al Ener­gyTech Awards 2022 saves ener­gy by not show­ing pho­tos, ani­ma­tions or videos. Pub­li­cis Sapi­ent relies on vec­tor-based graph­ics, reduced text, black back­ground, anchor links, web-safe fonts and clean code.
