Sustainable Energy Europe Awards Competition: Apply by 29 February

Ecsite, The European network of science centres and museums and the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) Secretariat are pleased to invite you to participate in the forthcoming Sustainable Energy Europe Awards Competition. The Sustainable Energy Europe Awards were launched by the European Commission in 2005 and provide an invaluable opportunity to highlight the successes of the most outstanding and innovative projects in the fields of energy efficiency and renewable energy. For this 6th edition, projects can be submitted in five categories:

  • Communicating: Projects in this category include all types of communication activities that create awareness and aim at changing the perception and behaviour of stakeholders and citizens.
  • Consuming: Projects in this category refer to a more efficient energy management aiming at reducing energy consumption from both production and end-user side.
  • Learning: Projects in this category are carried out to improve knowledge and skills related to energy efficiency and renewables. They are usually carried out by official training and education bodies, such as schools, universities, training centres, etc.
  • Living: Projects aiming at making buildings more energy-efficient or integrating the on-site generation of renewable energy.
  • Travelling: Projects in this category are related to sustainable mobility, clean transport and fossil-fuel free initiatives from public authorities or transport companies.

As a member of Ecsite we would be honoured to have you on board. Presenting a project will help promote your organisation’s commitment towards a cleaner environment and a more sustainable Europe, receive EU institutional recognition and gain greater visibility and media attention.

To aid your application, the Awards secretariat offers personalised assistance. We would be pleased to answer your questions and assist you in completing your application form. To apply please visit: http://www.eusew.eu/awards-competition. The deadline to apply is 29 February 2011.

The Awards ceremony will take place on 19 June 2012 in Brussels in the framework of the European Union sustainable Energy Week and will be hosted by energy Commissioner Mr. Günther H. Oettinger (tbc).
