Congratulations 2020 GPLA Winners
Center for Resource Solutions presented the 2020 Green Power Leadership Awards on September 22, 2020, 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. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also recognized 12 Green Power Leadership Award winners in four categories. “The 2020 Green Power Leadership Award winners are leaders in spurring innovation and promoting growth in the U.S. renewable energy market,” said Anne L. Austin, Principal Deputy Assistant Administrator of EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation. “We commend their efforts, which help protect our environment and improve our air quality.”

About the Green Power Leadership Awards
The annual Green Power Leadership Awards (GPLAs) are competitive awards that recognize outstanding commitments and achievements in the green power marketplace. By choosing green power instead of conventional electricity, consumers, businesses, and organizations can support increased deployment of renewable energy technologies that will reduce the environmental impact of electricity generation and increase energy security. The GPLAs are presented by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) at the annual Renewable Energy Markets conference.
