ACORE Awarded US $1 Million for Social Entrepreneurship

[RenewableEnergyWorld.com]  The Skoll Foundation announced that it has awarded the American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) a three-year grant of $1,000,000. ACORE was given the award because of its effectiveness in creating a community of professional service firms, financial institutions, NGOs, government agencies, educational institutions, associations and end users who have common interests in renewable energy. The model is scalable in the U.S. and also serves as a model for other countries.

The Skoll Awards program provides social entrepreneurs, whose models for sustainable change have already yielded significant impact, with unrestricted funding to scale their programs and amplify their reach across regions, countries and continents.
