In celebrating its premiere in 2018, The smarter E AWARD pays tribute to these innovations in two categories. The Smart Renewable Energy category honors outstanding, innovative business models and pioneering solutions in the area of sector coupling, while the Outstanding Projects category recognizes projects undertaken in the areas of solar, storage, energy management and clean transportation. With The smarter E AWARD, the organizers are highlighting groundbreaking individual innovations and creating transparency in a complex topic.
The future of renewable energies in the power supply depends strongly on digitalization along the whole value-added chain – as this is the only way to ensure that power from decentralized and disparate volatile energy sources is optimally integrated into the grid. Numerous new digital services, products and solutions are currently under development. These will control the decentralized energy market flexibly and safely, and in doing so, optimally coordinate generation and consumption.
The awards in the category "Smart Renewable Energy" will be awarded to innovative and intelligent products and concepts in the following areas:
Innovation is driven by role models and pioneers. That is why we are looking for the "Outstanding Projects" in the field of renewable energies.
Eligible for submission are projects or a product that has been incorporated into a global project, which meet the following requirements.
Industrial and commercial use of solar thermal applications
Concepts and solutions for intelligently connecting the generation, storage, distribution and use of energy
Decentralized generation and consumption of renewable energies to optimize the use of energy and reduce the burden on higher-level electricity grids.
Use of solar energy for off-grid electrification solutions with a special emphasis on increasing the quality of life and stimulation of productivity and education.
