The Zayed Future Energy Prize


Our world is increasingly embracing innovative solutions in order to create a sustainable future, and the Zayed Future Energy Prize is a unique platform that recognises and rewards today’s innovators for their contributions to change.

His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi and deputy supreme commander of the Armed Forces of the United Arab Emirates, established the prize in 2008 and launched it at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi. It honours his legacy of environmental stewardship.

The founding father and president of the United Arab Emirates, the late sheikh championed the sustainability cause long before it became a global, agenda-leading imperative.

The $4 million (U.S.) prize annually rewards outstanding achievements in different sectors, with annual categories that include: large corporation, small and medium enterprise, nonprofit/non-governmental organisation, lifetime achievement, and global high school.
