Renewable Transformation Challenge
About the Challenge
The vision of ISES is a world powered by 100% renewable energy, used efficiently and wisely, and accessible for all. To achieve this vision, a global transformation of our energy systems to efficient and affordable renewable energy must take place.
Applications for this Challenge can be for ongoing projects, innovative technology, policy initiatives, programs, research, analyses, or complete solutions that demonstrate how this goal is being met. The Renewable Energy Transformation Challenge can include either supply side (energy generation for end-use energy consumption) or demand side (energy efficiency) programs, or both.
In the context of this Challenge, 100% Renewable Energy applies to all end-use energy consumption: power, heat, and transport. 100% Renewable Energy can apply to either a micro or a macro context; i.e. local, regional, national, or global. Applicants may address any or all of these sectors.
Applications must demonstrate applicability, impact, sustainability and scalability in how they support the renewable energy transformation to achieve 100% renewables. Innovative ideas will be given preference over incremental improvement projects.
