The best European projects in the area of energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and clean transport are warmly invited to participate in the 2013 edition of the EUSEW Awards competition.

Managed by the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation (EACI) on behalf of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Energy, the Sustainable Energy Europe (SEE) Awards and the ManagEnergy Local Energy Action Award are complementary competitions sharing the same ultimate goal: to provide institutional recognition and increased visibility to best-in-class sustainable energy initiatives.

Sustainable Energy Europe AwardsFirst launched in 2006, the SEE Awards recognise and promote outstanding projects in energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and clean transport. Designed to welcome major stakeholders from the corporate and public sectors-as well as SMEs, multi-national industry associations, academic institutions and NGOs—the SEE Awards gather projects that contribute to the Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and have a proven impact. The SEE Awards integrate five different categories according to different policy strands: awareness raising projects (Communicating), educational programmes (Learning), buildings (Living), energy savings (Consuming) and clean mobility schemes (Travelling).
