The “SAEE Hall of Fame” was established in August 2009, by the SAEE Board and the Hall of Fame committee. On 12 November 2009, the late Dr. Ian Ernest Lane was bestowed the first SAEE Hall of Fame honour. Therefore, the Board of the SAEE aptly named the Hall of Fame after Dr. Lane.
This high honour will be bestowed on an individual whose service, dedication, commitment and selfless hours were given to the energy industry, particularly in the fields of Engineering, Built Environment, Environmental Studies and Energy Efficiency.
By being inducted into the Hall of Fame an individual's achievements are highlighted and it places the winner in an elite class. The SAEE Hall of Fame includes only the highest caliber individuals who are to be remembered for their achievements.
Ian Ernest Lane Hall of Fame minimum requirements:
- A nominee must have completed a minimum of 15 years service in the specific field.
- A Hall of Fame nominee does not have to be retired to be nominated or elected; however, all nominees must be at least 35 years of age. The age requirement will not apply to any nominee who is deceased.
- Each person may nominate up to one member for consideration into the SAEE Hall of Fame, and no self nominations will be allowed.
