Each year the Hydrogen Awards will aim to recognise and reward those businesses around the world that are carrying out award-winning work. Greater and lesser scales of operation will be recognised for their work and judges will be chosen for their understanding of how the hydrogen sector works across the world.

Key dates

Key dates for the Hydrogen Awards are as follows:

  • May 1: Call for entries re-opens for the Hydrogen Awards
  • September 30: Closing date for entries
  • October 31: Announcement of short-list of Finalist companies
  • November-December:  Final stage judging of entries to decide placings
  • February 15 2024: Awards presentation (venue tbc)

The Awards seek out enterprise, innovation and excellence across the sector. But an awards competition is only as good as the entries received and we will continue to try to encourage the broadest possible range of companies from across the sector to enter the Hydrogen Awards in the years to come.

In their first year it is expected that there may be gaps in the categories. If anyone feels there is a category missing, for instance, can let us know before the beginning of April each year so that amendments can be made to the category list.

Will your entries be returned?

No entries will be returned after judging. They will be securely destroyed after the Awards ceremony has taken place. Entries that make the short-list of finalists will be used in the Winners supplement published for the Awards. Any information marked as confidential will be treated as such by the organisers. You are not required to submit production vehicles or manufactured products as part of your entry as the judges will be reviewing video files and press reports as well as company material submitted by entrants.

What will you receive if you win?

Every winner will receive a custom-designed trophy and a Winner logo for print or online use. The Outstanding Achievement winner and the winner of the Combined Universities Special Award each receive a striking, matt black version of the trophy.

Highly commended runners-up will receive an acrylic trophy and a logo for print or online use. All finalists will receive a logo to display online or in print.

It is worth pointing out the all trophies can be fully recycled.


Closing date for entries: September 30 2023
