The EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) 2018 will take place from June 4 to June 8. Nominations for 2018 EU Sustainable Energy Awards for outstanding and innovative energy projects are open until February 23.

The EU Sustainable Energy Week features leading figures and a diverse program of sessions, networking and side-events aimed at discussing and shaping Europe’s energy future, from new policy development to sustainable energy ideas.

The nomination process for 2018 awards has already begun and is open until February 23.

The first and foremost rule is that anyone in the EU can submit a recent project – from a local initiative to an industry-wide program – that could help citizens, industry and the public sector work towards the Energy Union.

Activities, projects, and actions that are still at the planning stage, or not fully operational yet are not eligible. Neither are those that have been previously shortlisted.

The EU Sustainable Energy Awards recognize outstanding innovation in energy efficiency and renewables. Nominees, and later finalists are chosen from a shortlist of the year’s most successful projects for clean, secure and efficient energy. Prizes are awarded by an expert jury and European citizens.

Last year twelve projects were shortlisted in four categories, with the Energy Islands Award being introduced for the first time. The Greek Tilos project was double winner – it got the Energy Islands Award but it was also the winner of the Citizens’ Award

The Consumers award went to the Home Energy Saving Kit, The Public Sector Award was awarded to the Europe-wide CELSIUS project, while The Business category winner was SINBIO in Slovakia

2018 Award categories

Consumers – Rewarding actions leading to the behavioral change of individual energy users

Public Sector – Rewarding public and non-profit organizations taking exemplary initiatives in energy efficiency or use of renewables

Business – Recognising private organizations that have taken significant actions to reduce their own energy use and/or increase the share of renewable energy in their own operations (e.g. factories, offices, transport)

Young Energy Leaders – Recognising extraordinary young individuals, or group of individuals (below 30), within any type of organization, who represent the powerful role of today’s youth in the sustainable energy field.
