Nominations for the 2017 Clean Energy Council Awards close on Wednesday 31 May.

The Clean Energy Council Awards acknowledge excellence in the Australian clean energy sector by recognising the industry’s brightest innovators, best practice in community engagement and leaders who have made an exceptional contribution to the sector.

Past winners have included some of the clean energy sector’s shining lights, and with the current boom in the sector, this year’s awards promise to be the most tightly contested yet.
