Awards for Sustainable Energy in Automotive sector

Chennai Edition |1 Dec 2017 | ICSR Auditorium, IIT Madras

What is ASEA?

ASEA (Awards for Sustainable Energy in Automotive) is an award being given to recognize and catalyse adoption of sustainable energy and energy efficiency in the Indian automotive sector.

ASEA Awards Chennai Edition focusses on recognizing such companies in the Chennai zone.



Unlike other awards that provide recognition for sustainable energy use in industries, ASEA is the first and only industry award in India that combines the following two unique features:

  • It focusses on sustainable energy use solely for the auto sector.
  • It has a regional focus. Such regional recognition has significant potential to facilitate collaboration among the various stakeholders and increased adoption of best of breed solutions.

Owing to the above two unique focus dimensions – Auto Sector & Region – ASEA has the potential to dramatically accelerate sustainable energy adoption in the auto sector.

What are the Key Benefits from ASEA?

The Chennai edition of ASEA will result in the following benefits:

  • Pioneering sustainable energy implementations get relevant exposure
  • Cross pollination of best practices between auto companies in the Chennai region
  • Overall catalysis for adoption of sustainable energy in the auto industry

ASEA can provide critical benefits to the following stakeholder sectors:

Industry – Every segment of the auto industry cluster in a particular region stands to gain from the cross pollination of pioneering solutions and ideas brought to the limelight through ASEA.

Academia – ASEA has premier academic institutes such as the IITs as its key stakeholders. By enabling academia to closely interact with the industry in their own region, ASEA can engender far more productive and practical industry-research collaborations.

Government – By having the respective state governments as key stakeholders in each of its region-specific editions, the ASEA awards act as a powerful platform to initiate meaningful interactions between the industry and government, which can pave the way for key government initiatives and incentives.
