Three Criteria for Evaluation
Three main criteria apply:
1) Mainstreaming Clean Energy
2) Innovation for the broad use of Clean Energy
The candidates we seek are drivers (personalities, decision makers, teams) of completed projects (or projects under-construction) providing the maximum aggregated impact under the criteria noted here.
"Mainstreaming" refers to moving from experimental and scientific research in cleaner energy technologies to broad and integrated use of these technologies. The World Clean Energy Awards' focus is on implementation projects which assist this aim and on cultivating a prestigious global platform for recognizing and encouraging continued advancement in the application of clean energy technologies.
"Innovation" indicates that the nominee (decision maker / team) has demonstrated new ways of thinking and practice in the broad and integrated use of energy efficiency / sufficiency or renewable energy. Many people, our society and our planet should benefit directly or indirectly from the winning project's ideas and advancements.
"Leverage" refers to increasing the use of clean energy in all fields of application. Each winning project represents a best-practice example, which can serve as a role model for others and hold the potential for broad practical application within a short time frame.
