The CEM Award for outstanding achievement in energy-efficient products — the SEAD Global Efficiency Medal competition — encourages the production and sale of super-efficient equipment, appliances, and electronics. The Global Efficiency Medal competition identifies the most efficient products for multiple categories in four regions, as well as an overall global winner, and demonstrates the levels of energy efficiency that are achievable with commercially available and emerging technologies.
CEM's Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) initiative sponsors the Global Efficiency Medal competition.
Since 2012, the Global Efficiency Medal has served as a high-level forum to showcase manufacturers’ ability to meet consumer demand for feature-rich, energy-efficient products that provide top-quality services while reducing energy costs. The awards competitions demonstrate the levels of efficiency that are possible today, and shine a spotlight on innovative new technologies that can further push the boundaries of efficiency and slash energy consumption.
