The International Hydropower Association is now accepting proposals for candidates for its 2015 Mosonyi Award for Excellence in Hydropower.
This award recognizes individuals within IHA’s membership for outstanding contributions to the sector related to:
-- A long-standing commitment or a recent initiative that has had a major impact
-- A specific hydropower project, the performance of an organization or the hydropower sector in general
-- An aspect of hydropower sustainability or a broad-ranging initiative, such as national-level or basin-level strategic planning
Candidates will be reviewed by a panel convened by the IHA board. The panel will nominate selected candidates, with the IHA board selecting the final recipients. Up to three individuals may receive the award this year.
Recipients of this award will be made honorary IHA members. The award will be presented at the 2015 World Hydropower Congress in Beijing in May.
The award is named after Emil Mosonyi, the founding president of IHA. He made major contributions during his long career in hydropower, and his determination to champion excellence in hydropower lives on through IHA’s vision and mission, the association says.
Proposals for candidates are due by December 19.
IHA was created under the auspices of UNESCO in 1995.
