A NOTE ON COVID-19 AND THE 2021 ENERGY STAR AWARDS
EPA recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting individuals and organizations across all sectors of our global economy. Please be assured that we will take this unique circumstance into consideration in reviewing applications for the 2021 ENERGY STAR Awards, which recognize your ENERGY STAR achievements in calendar year 2020. As always, we encourage our partners to apply for a 2021 award. However, for those who feel they are unable to apply for a 2021 ENERGY STAR Award due to circumstances caused by the pandemic, a lapse in recognition in 2021 will not be counted against your history of consecutive ENERGY STAR awards earned in the next (2022) application cycle.
We hope to hold our traditional ceremony on April 22, 2021, but regardless of whether we are able to do so, we will review applications and recognize our partners’ accomplishments with awards.
Thank you for your continued support of ENERGY STAR.
