The prize was established in 2008 by the Government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as the Zayed Future Energy Prize. It was created to honour the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s legacy of environmental stewardship and sustainability. Over the past decade, the Prize has seen 76 winners positively impact the lives of over 318 million people with innovative renewable energy solutions.
This year, the prize will award $3,000,000 distributed among five categories with an allocation of $600,000 for each: Health, Water, Food and Energy.
