This award is open to all companies and organizations around the world that design, incorporate, or manufacture electric-powered systems such as consumer electronics, appliances, automotive and office equipment. Nominees do not need to be members of the PSMA.

All nominations must be submitted by September 3, 2024.


The goal of this award is to recognize a world achievement in system design to improve energy efficiency. In certain cases, more than one technology may be implemented to make the overall improvement to system efficiency.

The PSMA will publicly announce the winner of the award at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) in conjunction with its 40th anniversary celebration in 2025 at the Atlanta Convention Center. Travel expenses (up to US$2000) will be covered for the awardee (or delegate) to attend the award ceremony to receive the award plaque or trophy.

The award is intended to recognize breakthrough innovations showing:

  • A focus on energy efficiency (rather than renewables or electrification)
  • A focus on appliances and equipment (rather than building codes)
  • High global impact

Example applications with high global impact include but are not limited to LED lighting, air conditioning, comfort fans, refrigerator-freezers, heat pump space and water heating, electric motors, electric cookers, TVs, and water pumps. Regarding energy usage, electric-powered systems that are prevalent and running constantly have higher impact.
