Brussels, 14 November 2017 - On behalf of the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE), we are delighted to call for proposals for the ARE Awards 2018!
By discerning these awards, ARE – as the only global business association representing the entire decentralised renewable energy sector for rural electrification – wishes to highlight the energy access results achieved by the most passionate and innovative stakeholders and stimulate the exchange of knowledge.
The ARE Awards 2018 Ceremony will take place during the evening reception of the 4th ARE Energy Access Investment Forum on 13 March 2018 at 18:00 - 20:00.
One of the major challenges is to achieve a well-functioning coordination amongst the diverse actors with different backgrounds as represented by the different award categories, assuming that every organisation first needs to attend to its own mission and objectives. With respect to this, ARE again will reward the most effective initiative and/or project implemented with one Award per category.
The ARE Awards 2018 consist of 7 categories for projects implemented in 2017:
Applicants should structure their submission so as to clearly address the selection criteria:
The selection process of the winners is as follows:
Any institution, company or formal entity can apply for the ARE Awards 2018. Candidates can apply for a maximum of two categories (e.g. category 4 and 6), which should be clearly stated in the submission. If third parties were involved in the project, candidates are required to have their explicit and signed acceptation for the submission of the project for the ARE Awards 2018. The application for the categories 6 has to be submitted by the project leader or the majority of the partners in the case of a multi-partner project.
We would like to ask you to inform us of suitable candidates and to justify them, accordingly.
Winners will be promoted globally throughout the ARE network. We can also offer free access to the 4th ARE Energy Access Investment Forum and travel support for winners.
