Renewable Energy Vermont Awards

Renewable Energy Vermont annually recognizes energy innovators and advocates through awards at our Conference. We would like the nominations to come from our members, who are on the ground level everyday transforming Vermont's energy generation and usage into a reliable, low-carbon, and sustainable model.

You may nominate individuals or companies for more than one award and may also submit more than one nomination for each award. Nominations should include a brief recommendation describing why you feel this individual, company, or project deserves special recognition. We appreciate your input! Nominate a deserving business or individual by clicking here by September 12th or by emailing Wil Smith at wil@revermont.org !

Jim Grundy Award

Jim Grundy, a founder of REV, a renewable designer and businessman, and beloved husband, family and community member, is known for his integrity of spirit, kindness of soul and ingenuity and craftsmanship in renewable energy technologies. The Jim Grundy Award is given to the Vermonter who exhibits these qualities, beyond all others. Jim believed strongly in the importance of maintaining high quality design and installation of all renewable systems, to ensure the long-term, sustainable development of the local renewable energy industry.
