IREC to Recognize Best in Nation for Its Prestigious 3iAwards

Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC)
P.O. Box 1156
Latham, NY, 12110-1156

Press release date: July 2, 2014

Know an exemplary program, project or individual making a difference in the clean energy world? Nominate them TODAY for an IREC 3iAward honoring innovation, inspiration and ingenuity! We've extended the deadline to July 18.


For the first time, the selection of IREC's awardees will be in the hands of the public, with open voting online July 23 to August 15. In previous years, an independent committee of experts reviewed applications and selected winners. The opportunity for a variety of stakeholders and the community at large to vote will bring even greater awareness and acknowledgement of this year's applicants and winners.

"With these awards we recognize innovative solutions to solving tough problems; we salute the ingenuity of those who think outside the box to advance the use of clean energy; and we thank those who inspire others to make a difference," said IREC Board Chair David Warner.

While the awards traditionally focused solely on renewable energy initiatives, IREC recognizes that energy efficiency plays an equally crucial role in achieving a sustainable future. Typically, government, energy industries and educational systems view them separately, with little collaboration between programs. The Closing the Divide Award category seeks innovative examples of initiatives that help "close the divide" between energy efficiency and renewable energy.

Applicants can apply online or can download the writable PDF and email it to  by July 18, 2014, in one of five categories:
IREC Accredited Clean Energy Training Provider of the Year | Writable PDF
IREC Certified Clean Energy Trainer of the Year | Writable PDF
Community Renewables Project of the Year | Writable PDF
State and Local Government Initiative of the Year | Writable PDF
Closing the Divide Award - Integrating Energy Efficiency & Renewables | Writable PDF

Application deadline July 18, 2014        Online voting July 23 to August 15

The IREC 3iAwards ceremony will be held Tuesday, October 21, 2014 in conjunction with 2014 Solar Power International, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. IREC will honor the winners at Solar Central, the multi-media epicenter on the SPI Expo floor, where some 10,000 solar industry professionals are expected over four days.
