Elsevier and the International Solar Energy Society (ISES) are proud to announce the launch of the Renewable Transformation Challenge, an award to honor outstanding work which encourages progress towards a world powered by renewable energy. The first place winner will be awarded €20,000.
The vision of ISES is a world powered by 100% renewable energy, used efficiently and wisely, and made accessible for all. To achieve this vision, a global transformation of our energy systems to efficient and affordable renewable energy must take place.
About the challenge
Applications may present ongoing projects, product ideas, innovative technologies, policy initiatives, programs, research, analyses, or complete solutions targeting either supply side (energy generation for end-use energy consumption) or demand side (energy efficiency) programs, or both.
The winning proposal will be the one that best demonstrates the transformation to a world powered by renewable energy and that has potential to widen access to energy, particularly in developing countries. Submissions will be assessed in terms of applicability, impact, sustainability and scalability. Innovative ideas will be given preference over incremental improvement projects.
How to apply
The Challenge opens for submissions on February 6, 2017 and the deadline for submitting proposals is April 30, 2017. Applications are open to individuals and organizations in both not-for-profit and commercial sectors worldwide.
