The prize recognizes projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions or promote carbon uptake. The winners were chosen from almost 150 applicants worldwide by an international panel of judges.
“We must take immediate action to address global warming, and the Keeling Curve Prize is shining a spotlight on practical solutions that can reduce heat-trapping emissions, increase carbon uptake, and slow climate change,” said Brenda Ekwurzel, director of climate science for the Union of Concerned Scientists and one of this year’s judges.
Clean Energy Works was chosen as a laureate in the Finance category. As clean energy applications evolve, so must funding strategies. This category supports projects that work to increase and improve the flow of funding across all avenues of clean energy development and deployment.
