Elsevier and the International Solar Energy Society (ISES) launch the second Renewable Transformation Challenge

Challenge is open for submissions until April 30, 2019

Amsterdam – WEBWIRE

Elsevier, the information analytics business specializing in science and health, and the International Solar Energy Society (ISES), are pleased to announce the return of the Renewable Transformation Challenge, following the success of the first Challenge in 2017. The Challenge honors outstanding work that contributes to a world powered by renewable energy and with accessible energy-for-all. The winner of this year’s Renewable Transformation Challenge will be awarded €20,000 EUR.

“The Challenge is a great example of how Elsevier continues to collaborate with our partners like the ISES to support the UN Sustainability Development Goals, in ways that go beyond journal publishing—building on our strong foundation of research to create real world impact,” said Adam Fraser, Senior Publisher at Elsevier.

The Renewable Transformation Challenge is open to individuals and organizations in both not-for-profit and commercial sectors worldwide.

Applications may present ongoing projects, product ideas, innovative technologies, policy initiatives, programs, research, analyses, or complete solutions targeting either the supply side (e.g., energy generation for end-use energy consumption), or demand side (e.g., energy efficiency), or both. Innovative ideas will be given preference over incremental improvement projects. In 2017, the competition received over 200 submissions globally and first prize was awarded to Me SOLshare from Bangladesh for their proposal of an E-Rickshaw charging station.

The winning proposal will be the one that best demonstrates the transformation to a world powered by renewable energy and that has potential to widen access to energy, particularly in developing countries. Submissions will be assessed in terms of applicability, impact, sustainability and scalability.

A panel of international scientific experts will review the applications, and the top five will be put forward to an Elsevier-ISES Awards Committee who will make the final decision.

In addition to the €20,000 EUR, the winning entry, or one representative of the winning team, will receive a free registration to the Solar World Congress 2019 in Santiago, Chile where the Award will be presented, along with one Gold membership to the ISES.

The Challenge is now open for submissions until April 30, 2019. Read more about the Renewable Transformation Challenge.

All submissions must be made online using the 2019 Registration Form here.
