$4m Zayed Prize opens for submissions
Abu Dhabi, March 3, 2013
The Zayed Future Energy Prize, the world’s preeminent award for innovation in renewable energy and sustainability, will open for submissions on March 4, 2013 for the 2014 awards.
Entries are invited in the categories of large corporation, small and medium enterprise (SME), non-governmental organization (NGO), the individual lifetime achievement and global high schools. The closing date for submissions is August 5.
In the large corporation, SME, NGO and global high schools categories, submissions can be made by companies, organizations or schools. However, for the lifetime achievement category, individuals must be nominated by a third party.
All categories will be able to submit or nominate for the Prize on the website: www.zayedfutureenergyprize.com.
The Zayed Future Energy Prize is an annual $4 million award, which recognises individuals, companies and organizations that have made significant contributions in the fields of renewable energy and sustainability. High schools, however, are asked to submit a proposal for funding consideration.
“Based on the legacy of sustainability left to us by our Founding Father Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Zayed Future Energy Prize is fast creating that much needed ripple effect around the world,” said Dr Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, director general of the Zayed Future Energy Prize.
“From China to Mexico and from Germany to Tanzania; over the past five years, the Prize has continued to award and reward the innovators of our time in the hope that the impact of the Prize will enable the world to address our collective future energy challenges.”
Winners will be announced on January 20, 2014, at an award ceremony to be held in Abu Dhabi as part of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.
The eight winners last time included Siemens (Large Corporation), d.light design (SME), Ceres (NGO), Dr Jose Goldemberg (Lifetime Achievement), and four high schools representing various regions of the world (Global High Schools Prize). – TradeArabia News Service
