The nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) presented the 2020 Green Power Leadership Awards today, awarding eight organizations and two individuals for their roles in promoting and expanding the use of clean, renewable energy. The awards were presented during the annual Renewable Energy Markets 2020 conference in the categories of Green Power Market Development, International Green Power Market Development, Leadership in Green Power Education, and Green Power Leader of the Year.
“We are proud this year to honor an exceptional group of companies, organizations, and individuals who have been working separately together to advance one of the most important goals of our lifetime—the transition to clean, renewable energy,” said Jennifer Martin, executive director of CRS, which co-presents the annual awards with the U.S. EPA’s Clean Power Partnership. “In a year that underscored the immediacy of the climate challenge, these winners demonstrated the willingness and determination to act today in a way that benefits us all.”
The U.S. EPA Green Power Partnership also recognized 12 winners in four categories: Excellence in Green Power Use, Direct Project Engagement, Sustained Excellence in Green Power, and Green Power Partner of the Year.
