What a good idea! A new event called the World Clean Energy Awards has honored nine people and projects from around the globe for their innovations in energy efficiency and renewable energy.
These awards, dubbed the 'Energy Oscars' were presented by the Transatlantic 21 Association in Basel, on June 15. The honorees were nominated by a panel that included representatives from two organizations whose work we enjoy following, Worldwatch and the Rocky Mountain Institute.
You can learn all about the honorees and their projects, and even watch a recording of the awards ceremony, at www.cleanenergyawards.com. And what better way to celebrate achievements in energy? Since the global community will have to work together to solve the problems caused by burning fossil fuels, why not honor the people around the world who are finding practical ways to make cleaner energy a reality?
