We've extended the deadline to March 23 for the Microgrid Knowledge Greater Good Awards. So if you ran out of time to nominate a project, here is your chance!

The winners will be announced at Microgrid 2023: Lights On!, which will be held May 16-17 in Anaheim, California.

The greater good award recognizes microgrids that serve a clear societal need and improve the human condition. Applications should demonstrate this role through a strong narrative.

A panel of independent judges will consider submissions for microgrids operating in any part of the world.

Now in its fifth year, the award program seeks applications in four categories. 

  • Highest Recognition for a Microgrid Serving the Greater Good 

  • Greater Good Award for a Grid-Connected Microgrid

  • Greater Good Award for a Remote Microgrid

  • Local Greater Good Award (for a project in the conference's host state, this year California).

Anyone may nominate a microgrid, whether they are affiliated with the project or not, by filling out the form here. Only operating microgrids are eligible. Microgrids still in development should not apply.

“We are interested in compelling stories that show how microgrids serve humankind,” said Elisa Wood, editor-in-chief of Microgrid Knowledge. “Microgrids do so in a range of ways, in all kinds of settings from remote Himalayan villages to US college campuses.

The awards will be presented at Microgrid 2023, this year’s annual gathering of microgrid companies and the customers they serve, which will be held in California, one of the most active states for microgrid development, Last year’s event drew a recording-breaking number of participants — more than 600 people — to Philadelphia. Registration is now open for Microgrid 2023.
