CAN PROJECTS BE SUBMITTED THAT ARE NEARING COMPLETION?

Only projects that have already been implemented or are nearing completion 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 after the first stage of implementation. 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 submitted as well.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO ENTER PILOT PROJECTS?

Yes, it is. However, a functioning prototype or other clearly assessable results must be provided. Please also refer to the previous question.

WHO IS THE OFFICIAL PROJECT SUBMITTER WHEN SEVERAL PARTNERS ARE INVOLVED IN THE PROJECT?

This is at the project submitters’ discretion to nominate a primary contact.

WHAT IF THE SUBMITTER’S HOME COUNTRY IS NOT THE COUNTRY WHERE THE PROJECT WAS IMPLEMENTED?

The award will be assigned to the country where the project has been implemented.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO ENTER PROJECTS THAT ARE STILL IN PLANNING?

Projects still at an early planning stage with no implementation results may be submitted as well. However, they will not be considered for the Energy Globe Awards; instead they will be separately evaluated by Energy Globe partners who may be willing to offer project financing or startup consulting.
