Nominations for the Solar Power Portal and Energy-Storage.News Awards 2018 are now open, and once again we will be honouring installations completed outside of the UK.

The International PV Installation of the Year category has become a mainstay of the awards and is supported by our sister publication PV Tech. It has been established to recognise excellence in solar deployment outside of Solar Power Portal’s home market and is always one of the most fiercely competitive, bringing in nominations from across the world.

To be eligible for this award installations will have been completed outside of the UK after 7 June 2017, and nominations should include details of the system size and equipment used, its supporting business model and any offtaker strategy it may have. For the International PV Installation of the Year category any scale of solar project is eligible. 

Last year’s winner

Last year’s award was won by the Better City Collaborative Renewable Power Procurement project in Boston, US, which the judges praised for their innovative approach to a collaborative procurement process which supported the development of utility-scale solar PV.

This year nominations will remain open until midnight 31 May 2018 before a three-week judging process takes place.
