Greater Good Awards Nominations

The Microgrid Greater Good Award program, produced annually by Microgrid Knowledge, recognizes microgrids that fulfill a clear societal need and bolster the case that microgrids improve the human condition. We seek stories about microgrids that change the lives of those they serve.

If you'd like to nominate a microgrid for the award, please read these instructions and fill out the application below. Nominated projects must be operational by the time of the awards ceremony on April 24. Feel free to include links to articles, case studies or videos. Applications will be considered for microgrids operating in any part of the world. The awards will be presented at Microgrid Knowledge Conference 2024 Baltimore, MD.

Microgrid Knowledge will present winners in four categories:

  • Highest Recognition
  • Grid-Connected Microgrid
  • Remote Microgrid
  • Baltimore Microgrid (Host State)
