About The Awards

Founded in 2017, Solar Future Today Visionary Influencers Awards have been honouring Visionary Individuals who made a significant impact on Solar & Cleantech Policy, Business or Awareness over the Year, or for their Lifetime Achievements.


In 2021, the Awards powered by CleanTech Business Club, became the World CleanTech Awards to honour not only Visionary Individuals but also Visionary “Well-established Companies” & StartUps that Pave The Way for CleanTech Transformation during The CleanTech Decade.

In 2022 we united at the World CleanTech Awards Black-Time Ceremony in W Dubai Palm Hotel as we firmly believe that by being UNITED by our Passion and the Power of our DNAs we can and must further drive together THE Positive Change, despite geopolitical dynamics and global turbulences as #TogetherWeAreStronger.
