pv magazine Awards

Entries for the 2019 pv magazine Award are now closed. The entries are now in the hands of our independent expert jury, and we’ll be announcing the winners in January. Thanks and good luck to all who sent in an entry, and we will be back in 2020 with a new award schedule – check back here for details coming soon.


The 2019 awards feature four ‘windows’ opening throughout the year, where applicants are invited to send us details of their latest innovations. From these, Outstanding Entries will be selected and announced during three major global PV events: Intersolar Europe, SNEC, and Solar Power International. Each outstanding submission will be featured in pv magazine.

Outstanding Entries from each of the four award window rounds will be reviewed by a jury of independent experts in each category, to decide overall winners of the pv magazine Annual Award – to be announced in December. Awards in 2019 will be selected in five categories: Materials; Tools; Modules; Inverters; and BoS. An additional Sustainability Award will be selected at year’s end with contribution from a jury with specialized knowledge in the field.

Awards will be evaluated on the provision of the following details: description of the innovation; USP; economic feasibility and market impact; sustainability; and technical details. Entrants will be able to upload data sheets, certificates, publications, and photos.

Let your innovation shine and keep an eye on the pv magazine daily newsletters and website for announcements as to when an award window is open!

Do you walk the walk?

Sustainability. Cradle to cradle. The circular economy. These issues are reaching a tipping point. We need to recognize them, own them, and build them into our business models. Indeed, by being true green leaders and encouraging others in the industry to do the same, we’ll not only be a driving force behind the right revolution – we’ll also be on track to reap a host of advantages.As part of our initiative to bring these issues to the fore, pv magazine has created a new awards category for 2019: Sustainability. So if you’re doing something truly noteworthy, such as designing products with endless recycling potential, or eliminating hazardous chemicals from production, we want to hear from you.
