Zayed Sustainability Prize
In 2008 at the World Future Energy Summit, H. H. General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the UAE, announced the Zayed Future Energy Prize to honour his father, the late Sheikh Zayed's legacy of environmental stewardship.
The annual USD 4 million prize recognises noteworthy projects and the brains behind them across various pillars of society: from large corporations, small and medium-sized enterprises, non-governmental and not-for-profit organisations and individuals who have dedicated their lifetime towards sustainability, to high schools around the world that have actively moulded their learning environments and curricula around green principles.
It was emerged as the world's pre-eminent award for innovation in renewable energy and sustainability. Since its inception, the prize has recognised almost 90 innovators making a mark in the field of global sustainability.
Emirates Energy Award (EEA)
In 2012, Supreme Council of Energy in Dubai established Emirates Energy Award (EEA) as a regional, biannual prize awarded to encourage the rationalised use of energy and resources. The award recognises the efforts of the public and private sectors across the region in energy efficiency, energy projects and energy research.
