Australia’s leading business, finance and policy conference for clean energy has opened applications for industry leaders and innovators to nominate for the 2019 Clean Energy Council Awards.

Nominations are open from today until 17 May 2019, with the winners to be announced in Sydney on 30 July 2019 at the NAB Gala Dinner during the Australian Clean Energy Summit.

“The awards complement a packed and thought-provoking two-day program at the Australian Clean Energy Summit featuring those that are leading the charge towards renewable energy and batteries,” Clean Energy Council Chief Executive Kane Thornton said.

The Australian Clean Energy Summit will take place on 30 -31 July 2019 at the ICC Sydney and last year attracted more than 800 delegates.

The Awards

The Clean Energy Council Awards cover the three existing categories: Innovation, Community Engagement and Outstanding Contribution to Industry plus the new Marketing and Communications award.

“The Marketing and Communications award will highlight a critical element of our industry, the campaigns and content that spread the word about the wonderful work that is happening right across the renewable energy industry,” Mr Thornton said.

“Coming off another year of highs the awards celebrate the very best of the many dozens of projects and world-class innovations, as well as the campaigns that contributed to the biggest year for renewables to date,” he said.
