Request a Grant Writer

Competition for USA, Canada, and International individuals, companies, clubs, schools, universities, organizations, and nonprofits for sustainable projects that demonstrate achievable solutions to environmental issues. Award categories are Fire, Water, Air, Earth, Youth, and the new special category Sustainable Start-Up. Participation is open to projects in the following focus areas: resource conservation, improving air and water quality, energy efficiency and renewable energies and related areas. Projects that focus on the creation of awareness in these areas will also be eligible to participate.

For 2021 innovative projects and smart technologies from around the world are invited to submit. For more information on the five award categories, and the new special category Sustainable Start-Up, see: https://www.energyglobe.info/participate/categories#startup

Evaluation: 

  • First, Energy Globe national awards are determined on a country level and presented in their respective country (currently more than 180 countries).
  • As a next step, the best projects from each country are nominated for the Energy Globe World Award (international awards), which is presented in 5 different categories: Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Youth. The Energy Globe World Award event is the highlight of the year, where the best projects are featured to a global audience.

Only projects that have already been implemented will be considered for the Energy Globe Award. ‘Implemented’ means that enough progress must have been made for a project to be assessable. Examples:

  • A functioning prototype --or--
  • Partial implementation of a project consisting of several stages. (For example: 10,000 new trees are due for planting in several stages. Such a project can be submitted as early as in the course of the first implementation stage. Or: A school project has been planned for 100 schools and the pilot project was successfully implemented for the first school during the project’s initial year.)

Continuous projects and initiatives (such as ongoing garbage collecting and recycling initiatives) that have not yet been completed but are already showing initial results may be entered as well. In order to be considered for an award, projects must be submitted together with a complete description as described in the question categories provided on the submission form. In the category “Sustainable Start-Up” also ideas are possible.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Any company, organization (i.e. NGO, club, school, university), individual or public authority that contributes to climate change and other environmental issues can participate.
