PV Tech will present a new international category at its sister site Solar Power Portal’s annual awards ceremony this year.

The PV Tech Best international use of solar award will be given to the project – either grid connected or not – that has done the most to benefit the local community in which it has been located.

Whether you’re sending solar lanterns to 'last mile' locations or building a grid-connected project internationally, the judges for this award will be looking for training and long-term employment opportunities in addition to significant technical expertise.

The awards, now in their third year, take place during the Solar Energy UK exhibition in Birmingham, 13-15 October. Organised by PV Tech’s publisher Solar Media, Solar Energy UK is the largest dedicated solar event in the UK and has been growing in importance as a hub for doing European solar business.
