Once again, Skild is thrilled to partner on the Elsevier-ISES Renewal Transformation Challenge. Now in its third iteration, this challenge recognizes and honors outstanding work encouraging progress furthering ISES’ vision of a world powered by 100% renewable energy. This vision requires a global transformation of our energy systems to efficient and affordable renewable energy sources.
This evolution can be achieved only through private and civil society initiatives toward innovative and successful programs that adopt the use of renewable energy technologies and the intelligent application of energy efficiency measures. In the context of this challenge, the energy transformation applies to all end-use energy consumption: power, heat, and transport.
This objective is consistent with the vision of the International Solar Energy Society (ISES), which is for a world powered by 100% renewable energy used efficiently and wisely and accessible for all.
For the 2021 prize, the judges and jury are particularly interested in applications that demonstrate applicability, impact, sustainability, and scalability in how they support a green recovery from COVID-19 at local, regional, or global scales. However, applications that do not directly address this topic will still be considered.
The winning proposal will be the one that best demonstrates the potential to widen access to energy, particularly in developing countries, through a transformative application of renewable energy technologies, taking into consideration societal impacts, project replicability, environmental improvement, economic viability, and energy access.
Applications are being accepted through September 12. To learn more, click here.
