FEDARENE is pleased to announce the launch of the 1st edition of the Roger Léron Award. The purpose of this Award is to acknowledge persistency and a proactive approach, bringing a successful contribution to sustainable energy at the regional and / or local level in Europe.


Indeed, we believe that the regional and local levels of governance play a central role in energy and climate issues, through its responsibility in many policy areas (energy, transport, housing,…), proximity to citizens, thorough knowledge of the territory, and a greater flexibility than national governments have.


Each year, as of the first edition of 2015, the winner (an individual or an organization) will receive a trophy during a ceremony in Brussels on the 16th June.


The Award is named in memory of Roger Léron who was president of FEDARENE from 1990 to 2007 and a great contributor to the regional and local sustainable energy field throughout his life.
