As a part of the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW), recognition is given to outstanding innovation in energy efficiency and renewables in the form of the EU Sustainable Energy Awards.
All submissions will be screened by experts to identify and shortlist the most successful projects for clean, secure and efficient energy. A high-level jury will select the best projects, and winners will be announced in an awards ceremony during the EU Sustainable Energy Week in 4-6 June 2018. The European citizens will also choose their favourite initiative.
Who can apply?
Your innovative solution can be considered for an Award if it is based in an eligible country, has a practical application that can be replicated elsewhere, and is ongoing or ended after June 2018. In addition to being practical, the solution should have a long-term, real-scale application directly linked to renewable energy or energy efficiency.
What are the categories?
There are four categories:
- Public sector
- Young Energy Leaders
In addition, a Citizens' Award will be granted based on the results of an online vote by the general public.
What is the selection criteria?
Initiatives will be judged based on three assessment criteria:
- Excellence and innovation (originality, driving changes towards energy transition)
- Impact and contribution to the EU's 2020 and 2030 sustainable energy objectives (measurable impact, socio-economic benefits, environmental effects)
- Replication potential and social acceptance (transferability, positive societal feedback)
