IDEAS - Energy Innovation Contest on Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Access

Why should you present your proposal?

By submitting your proposal, you will have the opportunity to participate for funds for the implementation of your idea.

We welcome applications from individuals, companies and organizations of the 26 member countries of the IDB.

The winners will sign contracts with the sponsors. IDEAS is only a global concept.


Once the winners are announced and confirmed, the winners will sign contracts with sponsors. The winners will present project status reports and progress will be monitored by the sponsors. The contract may be revoked in case of failure to achieve the objectives. A final report will be presented at the end of each stage.

All proposals must be submitted and implemented in accordance with the instructions of the contest through the online form.
