Nominations for the Solar Power Portal Awards 2017 are now open, and this year we welcome back the award for best international solar project.

After being first introduced at the 2015 awards the category was absent last year. But, due to popular demand, the award marks its return in 2017 and will once again be awarded in conjunction with sister publication PV-Tech.

The International solar project award recognises truly innovative or defining solar projects completed outside of the UK and Ireland after 1 June 2016. All types of solar project are valid (residential, commercial and ground-mount) and must represent the best practice the global solar community has to offer.

Details of project specifics – size, location, any relevant subsidy support/financing agreement – should be included, as well as a summary of what sets this project apart from the crowd.

2015’s winner

International solar developer Backwoods Solar took the spotlight at 2015’s ceremony for its work powering remote polling stations in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

This year nominations will remain open until midnight 31 May 2017 before a three-week judging process takes place.
