Global Leading RES Projects

The number of photovoltaic (PV) and electrical energy storage (EES) installations keeps on growing all over the world. Thousands of companies along the entire value chain – operating on national or international basis – are active to promote the generation of renewable energies. Installing PV and EES plants represents a huge challenge, especially in emerging markets without comprehensive support schemes. Due to the tens of thousands of projects implemented every year, there is only little awareness for projects of particular importance.

Solution: 'Global Leading RES Projects'
The German CleanTech Institute (DCTI) has partnered with EuPD Research, the Joint Forces for Solar (JF4S) initiative and the International Battery & Energy Storage Alliance (IBESA) to certify the world’s most innovative RES projects and starts with a closer look at PV and EES projects. Such a certification will have different impacts:

  • Diffusion of technologies
  • Awareness of project realization
  • Recognition of all companies whose are part of the project team


The certification rewards projects in five categories. The seals relate to one region and are awarded on a yearly basis. 

  • First Mover
    First significant PV / EES project
  • Tech Driver
    PV / EES project with the most innovative technological attributes
  • Innovative Application
    PV / EES project with the most innovative application
  • Unique Location
    PV / EES project in the most singular location
  • Largest Project
    Largest PV (ground-mounted/roof-top) / EES project



All manufacturers, partners, institutions and intermediaries involved in outstanding international projects are cordially invited to point out the relevant projects as well as submit contact and basic information highlighting the specifics of the project (such as a press releases, media reports or brochures) to the DCTI.



All reported projects are tested and evaluated by internationally recognized photovoltaic industry experts.



The award 'Global Leading RES Project' promotes awareness of international photovoltaic projects. It highlights innovations and pioneers in the industry, so that their exemplary impact has a positive effect on the further demand for PV and EES power plants. A win-win constellation for manufacturers, investors, project implementers and customers.
