40 Under 40

40 Under 40

Midwest Energy News’ 40 Under 40 awards program highlights emerging leaders throughout the region and their work in America’s transition to a clean energy economy.

We launched the inaugural 40 Under 40 in 2015 to celebrate Midwest Energy News‘ fifth anniversary and received hundreds of nominations of Midwest-based leaders and innovators from all sectors.

Each year, Midwest Energy News recognizes Midwest-based leaders and innovators from all sectors— industry, government, regulatory, business, academia, nonprofit, and advocacy. Those selected are invited to the Honorees Reception in Chicago to celebrate and network with the prestigious advisory committee and past award recipients.

Once again, we need your nominations for the top 40 emerging clean energy leaders in the Midwest. Honorees are both self-nominated and nominated by peers.
