sustainableEnergyAwardsWebAre you working on an innovative and effective energy efficient or renewable energy project? Tell us about it and you could win an EU Sustainable Energy Award at the EU’s Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) and become Sustainable Energy Leader!

EUSEW takes place every year in June. It is a month-long series of activities – including conferences (from 13-17 June 2016), local sustainable energy events and the EU Sustainable Energy Awards – dedicated to building a secure energy future for Europe. The Awards aim to promote energy-saving and renewable energy projects and initiatives across Europe.
To be in with a chance of winning, your project must be based in the EU, Iceland, Norway, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Turkey, Israel, Moldova, Switzerland, Faroe Islands or Ukraine.

There are several categories of award: ‘consumers’ – for actions that lead to the behavioral change of individual energy users, ‘public sector’ for exemplary initiatives lead by public and non-profit organizations, ‘businesses’ for forward-thinking businesses, and the ‘citizens’ award for the project which best captures the public imagination.

Projects should be innovative with original features likely to attract EU media, they should have a measurable impact in that they help reduce energy use or bring online renewable energy which will contribute to the EU’s climate and energy goals. They should also have a positive public opinion and be replicable across Europe.
