The call for submissions for the 5th annual “Good Practice of the Year” award is now open until February 16th, 2018!

The competition rewards those who dare to think outside the box when it comes to creating the grid for the energy transition. It’s awarded annually by the Renewables Grid Initiative in collaboration with the European Commission upon recommendation of our jury of experts.

The winning practice should be innovative and an improvement to the existing practices in its category.

However, the minimum criterion for a submitted practice to be considered in this competition is a clear connection to a grid project that is needed for the integration of renewables. European and non-European grid operators, project developers, NGOs, and public authorities engaged in grid projects are invited to send their submissions and let their most original and successful practice shine.

Submissions compete in these three categories:

  • Communication & Participation

The award for “Communication & Participation” rewards dedicated engagement with stakeholders and the broader public. Good practices in this category include for example, innovative forms of citizen dialogues, creative information events, new communication tools, or original compensation measures. 

  • Technology & Design

This category recognizes innovative thinking in technology and design. Any practice that has to do with the aesthetics of grid infrastructure or the creation of a smarter energy infrastructure can be submitted. We hope to learn about new tools for renewable energy integration, innovative grid design concepts, or ideas that target the smarter distribution of electricity. Of course, those are only some of the many areas your project can be rooted in.

  • Environmental Protection

This award honors outstanding practices in nature and biodiversity protection. We are looking for success stories or projects with the potential to one day become success stories in the fields of bird/wildlife protection, habitat restoration along grid lines, ecosystem enhancement under overhead lines and many more.
