Honouring CleanTech & Green Hydrogen Disruptors

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


In 2021, the Awards powered by the CleanTech Business Club, became the World CleanTech Awards (WCA), to honour Visionary Individuals that Pave The Way for CleanTech and Green Hydrogen Transformation during The CleanTech Decade and beyond. 

From 2023, a new dimension was added with the launch of the World CleanTech StartUPs Awards (WCSA). This annual global competition specifically acknowledges the most innovative and disruptive CleanTech startups, along with their visionary founders and investors.

The goal of WCSA is to drive motivation and growth within the CleanTech industry, offering startups a platform to showcase their groundbreaking solutions.
