EU Sustainable Energy Week to take place next 15-19 June 2015

The dates are set for next year’s leading event on the promotion of a secure, clean and efficient energy for Europe. The EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) will take place from 15 to 19 June 2015 in Brussels and across Europe.

The BUILD UP Initiative and the EUSEW Secretariat invite you to be part of it, organising an Energy Day, applying to the Sustainable Energy Europe Awards or attending one of the hundreds of events to take place during the entire month of June 2015. Click here to discover how to become an Energy Day organiser.

The Sustainable Energy Europe Awards, the EU reference prize for sustainable energy projects in Europe, are already open. If you are proud of your company’s results in reducing its carbon footprint or if your city deserves further recognition for its achievements in sustainable energy, the Awards are made for you.

This year projects can compete in three categories: renewable energy, energy efficiency and cities, communities and regions.

Highly energy efficient buildings are encouraged to apply, be that passive or active energy houses, refurbished dwellings, renovated historical buildings and facilities combining the installation of renewable energy with outstanding energy performance standards. The EUSEW Secretariat will help you select the most appropriate category depending on the specific measures foreseen by your project. Buildings in which the main promoter is a local or regional public authority or an energy agency will enter the category ‘cities, communities and regions’.

Nominees and winners will be invited to the Awards ceremony that will take place in Brussels during the EU Sustainable Energy Week, giving them great visibility at the European level. Articles and videos will present the winning projects as innovation leaders and role models for sustainable energy.

We strongly encourage you to submit an early description to take full advantage of the Secretariat’s personalised feedback.

First evaluation deadline is January 31. Final deadline to apply is 28 February 2015.
