With its awards, VGB wishes to draw the attention of the industry and interested public exactly on those topics that are of major importance for the companies of power and heat generation. This applies to the national and international scene as well as to current and future issues:
- occupational safety and health as well as
- research and development.
Against this background, VGB launched three unique awards.
VGB Quality Award
The VGB Quality Award has been established to increase the awareness for the commercial value of quality and to highlight examples of suppliers who have delivered extraordinary quality in services and products. The VGB Quality Award has been extended and is now covering all electricity and heat generation technologies – renewables, distributed
generation, hydro, oil-, gas- and coal fired power stations – and all kind of projects – for new build, refurbishment, maintenance, or decommissioning.

VGB Safety & Health Award
The VGB Safety & Health Award has been established 2012 to increase the importance of "Safety & Health" in the power and heat generation sector. The VGB Safety & Health Award has its focus - contrary to the VGB Quality Award - on people. The implementation of the VGB Safety & Health Award was a success and met the VGB members interest.

VGB Innovation Award
The VGB Research Foundation has awarded outstanding performance of young university graduates working in the field of generation and storage of power and heat for more than 30 years. The work that is to be honoured in this way can relate either to innovation in operation or to new findings in research.

The VGB Awards will be awarded at the VGB Congress.
