Awards - public vote

The EU Sustainable Energy Awards are a major feature of the annual EUSEW Policy Conference.

12 finalists across 4 categories are on the shortlist of the year’s most successful projects for clean, secure and efficient energy. A high-level jury decides the winner in each of the categories – Businesses, Public Sector, Consumers and Energy Islands.

A public online vote will determine the winner of the 2017 Citizens’ Award. Read about the finalists and cast your vote for your favourite!
