About Awards competition - 2013 submissions closed
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).

ManagEnergy Local Energy Action AwardRegional and local public authorities have an unquestionable role to play in achieving Europe’s 2020 climate and energy objectives. Launched in 2007, the ManagEnergy Local Energy Action Award is expressly designed to reward public authorities and energy agencies at the local and regional level that have shown outstanding achievements in the area of renewable energy, energy efficiency and clean transport.
Projects from local and regional public authorities and energy agencies will be automatically considered for the ManagEnergy Award in addition to the SEE category for which they apply.
The EUSEW Secretariat would like to thank all applicants for sending their project description to the 2013 edition of the Sustainable Energy Europe & ManagEnergy Awards.
Each of the submitted entries is currently being evaluated against the 2013 eligibility criteria. Each project will receive personalised feedback by the EUSEW Secretariat in the next two weeks (from 11 to 22 March 2013); applicants might be asked to provide additional information for the purpose of this evaluation.
As from March 25th, the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) of the Sustainable Energy Europe and ManagEnergy awards will evaluate each entry against the 2013 assessment criteria. The TAC is composed of six technical experts on energy efficiency, renewables and clean transport, selected by the European Commission on the basis of their field of expertise and professional experience.
Nominees will be published mid-April via this website and EUSEW social media platforms (Facebook & Twitter). At the beginning of May 2013, a high-level jury will evaluate each of the short-listed projects and select the six winners.
As every year, winners will be announced during EUSEW Awards Ceremony, a prestigious event taking place annually in Brussels with the presence of Commissioner Günther H. Oettinger.
So who will make it to the final run? Stay tuned in and follow us closely on social media!
