The EUSEW Awards are back – and bigger than ever!
Have you nominated a project for this year’s awards yet? There is a new category – energy islands – and wider eligibility across the board.
EU Sustainable Energy Awards recognise cutting-edge innovation in renewables and energy efficiency. So it is only right that the Awards themselves should evolve.
Energy islands now have their own category, joining last year’s consumer, public sector and business categories. Projects in this category cover areas not connected to a wider energy grid network, and either enhance the area’s energy security, generate more or better energy or reduce pollution. Areas do not have to be physical islands; they can simply be communities or regions generating their own power.
Other rules have been updated. Research projects are now eligible, as long as they have a practical application, while the geographical scope has expanded to include the new countries associated to Horizon 2020 as from 1 January 2017.
Each of the four categories has its own award and all the projects are eligible for the Citizen’s Award – a fifth award chosen by an online public vote.
Lead, share & inspire. Nominate your project before the 3 March deadline.
