IREC announces its 18th annual search for innovative renewable energy projects & programs

Each year, the Interstate Renewable Energy Council, Inc. recognizes individuals and organizations that have implemented innovative projects during the past year that promote and accelerate the adoption of renewable energy technologies. This year, IREC will present awards in the following four categories:

  • Clean Energy Workforce Development
  • K-12 Education and Training
  • Community Renewable Energy Projects
  • State and Local Government Initiatives

Eligible programs or activities include education, energy policy, legislation, regulatory actions, demonstration projects, training programs, or innovative financial business models. Projects must have been initiated during 2010.

The awards will be made in conjunction with the IREC Annual Meeting to be held in Dallas, Texas on Monday, October 17, 2011. Winners will be notified prior to the event. Due to budgetary constraints, no travel assistance stipends are available for award winners this year.

Award recipients will be recognized during IREC’s annual meeting and will receive a commemorative plaque recognizing their achievement. The winning entries will also be posted on the IREC website, featured in a national press release and listed in a brochure to be distributed to all attendees at the annual meeting.
