About the awards competition

What?

The EU Sustainable Energy Awards recognise outstanding innovation in energy efficiency and renewables. Nominees/finalists are chosen from a shortlist of the year’s most successful projects for clean, secure and efficient energy. With prizes awarded by an expert jury and European citizens, the Awards competition highlights new ways to shape Europe’s energy future.

How?

A public online vote determined the winner of the 2018 Citizens’ Award.

Who?

Anyone in the EU could submit a recent project – from a local initiative to an industry-wide programme – that could help citizens, industry and the public sector work towards the Energy Union. Hundreds of contenders submitted projects, from which twelve final nominees (finalists) and five winners were chosen.
