This year, the annual awards honor the nation’s best in both renewable energy and energy efficiency, with a few new features that will elevate the exposure of both candidates and award winners.
For the first time, the selection of IREC’s awardees will be in the hands of the public, with open voting online July 30 to August 15. In previous years, an independent committee of experts reviewed applications and selected winners. The opportunity for a variety of stakeholders and the community at large to vote will bring even greater awareness and acknowledgement of this year’s applicants and winners.
“With these awards we recognize innovative solutions to solving tough problems; we salute the ingenuity of those who think outside the box to advance the use of clean energy; and we thank those who inspire others to make a difference,” said IREC Board Chair David Warner.
Online voting July 30 – August 15
The IREC Innovation Awards ceremony will be held Tuesday, October 21, 2014 in conjunction with 2014 Solar Power International, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. IREC will honor the winners at Solar Central, the multi-media epicenter on the SPI Expo floor, where some 10,000 solar industry professionals are expected over four days.
