Nominate a company or individual for the 2019 Cleantech Awards

CCIA is now taking nominations for the 2019 Cleantech Awards, the only annual award that celebrates clean energy and technology in Colorado. The winners and nominees will join a short list of exceptional honored companies like Tendril (now Uplight), Solid Power and others. The nomination form is simple and should only take a few moments of your time. A judging committee of CCIA members, sponsors, key partners and board members will select the finalists and winners, who will be announced at the Colorado Cleantech Awards in Golden on October 16. Submit as many nominations as you like, and self-nominations are welcome. Nominations close on September 24, 2019.

The Colorado Cleantech Awards Celebration brings the cleantech community together to honor the creativity, innovation, and dedication to a cleaner energy future put forth by Colorado’s entrepreneurs, educators, corporate innovators, volunteers and policymakers.

In 2019, the Cleantech Awards will be held for the first time in Golden, Colorado, at newly renovated event venue The Rose. The largest building in Golden at the time was originally built in this location 150 years ago, and it has undergone iterations as a swimming pool, an auto garage, the Colorado Territorial Legislature building, a department store and most recently, an event venue.

Register early for a chance to access exclusive tours of local industry leaders’ facilities, including NREL, CoorsTek and others.
