30 June 2014

The Clean Energy Council announced that Infigen Energy was shortlisted as a finalist of the Community Engagement Award.

A ‘Solar Wikipedia’, a community fun run around a wind farm, a home-grown battery storage unit and a host of best-in-class solar installations are some of the finalists vying for honours in this year’s Clean Energy Council Awards.

The winners will be announced at Clean Energy Week 2014, the premier event for the renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors, to be held in Sydney from 22 July.

The awards are divided into two categories – the Clean Energy Council Industry Awards that recognise excellence in innovation and community engagement, and the Solar Design and Installation Awards that honour the highest standards of technical excellence in the installation of solar power systems.

Clean Energy Council Chief Executive David Green said the continued evolution of the industry continued to impress and inspire every year the awards were presented.

“The diversity of entries for the Community Engagement and Innovation Awards is always fascinating. This year’s competition clearly demonstrates the commitment of many organisations when it comes to sharing the benefits of clean energy projects with local communities, as well as showcasing the innovators in this industry,” Mr Green said.
