Sustainable Energy Europe and ManagEnergy Awards 2014
A new edition of the award competitions in sustainable energy at the EU level is now open. The 2014 Sustainable Energy Europe and ManagEnergy awards will highlight public and private initiatives that are actively contributing to the EU’s 2020 energy and climate objectives. The competition is open until 28 March.
Sustainable Energy Europe Awards
First launched in 2006, the SEE Awards recognise and promote outstanding projects in energy efficiency, renewable energy and clean transport. The SEE Awards gather projects that contribute to the Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and have a proven impact. The competition is open to stakeholders from the public and private sector including SMEs, multi-national industry associations, academic institutions and NGOs. The SEE Awards integrate five different categories according to different policy strands: awareness-raising (Communicating), educational programmes (Learning), buildings (Living), energy savings (Consuming) and clean mobility (Travelling).
Regional and local public authorities have an essential role to play in achieving Europe’s 2020 climate and energy objectives. Launched in 2007, the ManagEnergy Award is expressly designed to reward their achievements. This year’s ManagEnergy Award will focus on local and regional public authorities and energy agencies that are addressing fuel poverty, implementing renewable energy projects or innovative financing schemes for sustainable energy actions.
