Nine winners honoured with Zayed Future Energy Prize

ABU DHABI, January 15, 2018

Nine winners of the Zayed Future Energy Prize 2018 were honoured by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, today during an award ceremony in Abu Dhabi, as part of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.
The tenth edition of this key international sustainability award is special this year, as it coincides with the Year of Zayed, said a Wam news agency report.
Sheikh Mohamed said 2018 has a special importance for the UAE as it will celebrate the Year of Zayed, reviving the memory of the founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, whose journey reflected the noble values of wisdom, leadership and giving. 
Sheikh Zayed's wise vision in sustainable development and environmental protection will remain a guiding beacon for the country’s journey to build and advance the nation, as well as a source of inspiration to launch further initiatives that aim to strengthen the foundations of international sustainability, he added.
Sheikh Mohamed went on to say that the UAE, under the leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, is following in the footsteps of the Founding Father, by launching programmes and initiatives that were inspired by his mission and ideas, including the Zayed Future Energy Prize, established to promote his approach and honour the exceptional efforts of those who have positively contributed to their communities.
His Highness presented the award to the winners in the following categories: Best personal achievement for individuals, large companies, small and medium companies, non-profit organisations, and the international award for secondary schools. The awards were presented to the winning schools for their exceptional vision and efforts to develop unique renewable energy projects while the other winners were awarded for their key role in supporting sustainability.
Sheikh Mohamed congratulated the winners while praising their effective role in making positive changes to their communities and contributing to the country’s social and economic journey. He also urged them to continue their efforts, to achieve better results and serve humanity, said the report.
