The winners of the Hogan Lovells Community Solar Innovation Awards 2017 were revealed during the 2018 SEED South Africa Symposium in Pretoria. The Community Solar Innovation Awards recognize outstanding eco-inclusive businesses and not-for-profit organizations in developing countries that use solar energy or technology to benefit lives in poor communities. The Awards are sponsored and supported by international law firm Hogan Lovells, who will provide the ten winning enterprises with pro bono legal advice and will arrange, in collaboration with SEED, for winners to receive a tailored support package, including peer-to-peer mentoring and support to replicate their business models in other jurisdictions. The winning enterprises are locally-led and significantly help the lives of women and girls, with many having a particular focus on gender equality and/or female empowerment.
