28 Feb 2017

The Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) announces its Call for Nominees for its 2017 3iAwards - a prestigious annual national search for innovative people, projects and programs that promote and accelerate the sustainable growth of clean energy. The IREC 3iAwards honor innovation, ingenuity and inspiration from the nation's best in both renewable energy and energy efficiency.  

Applications from or on behalf of extraordinary people, projects and programs in the clean energy arena will be accepted online through March 25, 2017 in one of five categories: 

  • Community Renewables Project of the Year
  • State and Local Government Initiative of the Year
  • Regulatory Champion of the Year
  • IREC Accredited Clean Energy Training Organization of the Year
  • IREC Certified Clean Energy Instructor/Master Trainer of the Year

 

Submit Nominations

"Every year IREC recognizes those who have creatively developed new approaches to advancing clean energy, because changing the status quo requires determination, innovation and persistence," said IREC Board Chair Larry Shirley. "With these awards, we honor the people who inspire us with exemplary projects and programs that increase renewable energy use and promote energy efficiency. And we encourage others to build on their successes."

All applications must be received online by March 25, 2017.

IREC recognizes that renewable energy and energy efficiency play equally crucial roles in achieving a sustainable future. While traditionally government, energy industries and educational systems view them separately, with little collaboration between programs, IREC's awards are inclusive. 

The 2017 IREC 3iAward winners will be honored at InterSolar North America in San Francisco, July 11, with the generous support of IREC's corporate sponsors.
