The Renewable Decade Awards for the Best
Green Energy Projects in the Czech Republic

O projektu

The Renewable Decade Awards recognize interesting and innovative projects utilizing renewable energy in the Czech Republic. A jury of energy experts will select the winning projects by 11 September 2016. Projects can be nominated both by the public through this website and on the basis of suggestions from the jury.

The Renewable Decade Awards may be granted in these five categories:

Renewable Energy for Families

Green Energy for Business

Smart Municipal Energy

Renewable Start-Ups

Students and Smart Energy

You may apply for an award yourself, or projects may be nominated via this website or by a member of the expert jury. An expert jury comprising representatives from renewable energy industry groups, universities, research institutes, consulting agencies, and the commercial energy sector will assess the projects. Winning projects will be announced in October 2016 at a gala evening ceremony attended by politicians and celebrities. Prize-winning projects, besides receiving this prestigious award, will also have the success and benefits of their project publicized.

Winning projects in the Renewable Energy for Families, Green Energy for Business, and Smart Municipal Energy categories will also receive a Renewable Decade plaque and media publicity. Award-winning students and start-ups, in addition to receiving a plaque and media publicity for their cutting-edge ideas, will also have the opportunity to make contact with potential investors and consult with legal and PR experts, who can help start up their projects.
