It’s that time of year again. We’ve narrowed down the solar, wind, geothermal, hydro and bioenergy finalists for the 2013 Project of the Year awards presented by Power Engineering and Renewable Energy World, and it’s your turn to vote for Readers’ Choice.
Like last year, renewable projects from around the globe are up against coal, oil and gas — so every vote counts. Let’s make sure a renewable project wins this important distinction.
Learn about the projects and cast your vote here. (Click on “details” for an in-depth description of each project.)
After receiving hundreds of nominations from the energy community, the editors of the Renewable Energy World and Power Engineering network of publications carefully considered each and narrowed down the finalists for each of the eight categories. Now we need your opinion for the ninth category: Readers’ Choice.
Editors will announce the winners in all nine categories on Monday, Nov. 11th during the Annual Awards Gala at the co-located Renewable Energy World North America Conference and Expo and Power-Gen International, which runs from Nov. 12th to 14th in Orlando, Fla.
Hurry! Voting closes October 1st, so spread the word and cast your vote now.
The renewable nominees are:
Solar (For the first time we have a tie for best solar project, so we have three nominees in this category.)
Solar Electrification of 57 Remote Villages, Andhra Pradesh, India
Solar-Agro-Electric Model, India
Godawari Green Energy Project, Rajasthan, India
Marble River Wind Farm, New York, U.S.
Bison Wind Project Phase 2 and 3, North Dakota, U.S.
Xiangjiaba Hydroelectric Power Plan, China
North Fork Skokomish Powerhouse and Fish Passage Facility, Washington, U.S.
Sacramento BioDigester, California, U.S.
Renewable Energy CHP Project at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B.C., Canada
Ngatamariki Geothermal Power Plant, Taupo, New Zealand
McGinness Hills Geothermal Power Plant, Nevada, U.S.
There are also several fossil fuel projects, but we won’t bore you with those details.
The Renewable Energy World and Power Engineering network of editors congratulates all of the finalists (but if you haven’t noticed, REW editors are really hoping a renewable energy project is victorious).
