“There’s a whole [cleantech] ecosystem in Washington that’s been put together already that we’re looking to build and grow with. The CleanTech Alliance has put together the full supply chain picture…and makes networking amongst those [industry verticals] very easy. It’s a big reason why we’re committed to staying in Washington.”

CleanTech Awards

Each year, CleanTech Alliance businesses, organizations and individuals with Energy Leadership Achievement Awards. The annual Achievement Award honors one business or organization and one individual for making significant contributions to the cleantech industry. Both awards are presented at the Energy Leadership Summit (formerly the Annual Meeting) in front of an audience of more than 300 cleantech industry executives, investors and policymakers from across the region. An independent panel of judges consisting of CleanTech Alliance members screens each application to select the finalists and overall winners.
