Sustainable Energy Europe and ManagEnergy Awards

Managed by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) on behalf of the European Commission's Directorate-General for Energy, the Sustainable Energy Europe (SEE) Awards and the ManagEnergy 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 Awards

    First launched in 2006, the SEE Awards recognise and promote outstanding projects in energy efficiency, renewable energy 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 (Communicating), educational programmes (Learning), buildings (Living), energy savings (Consuming) and clean mobility (Travelling).

  • ManagEnergy Award

    Regional and local public authorities have an essential role to play in achieving Europe’s 2020 climate and energy objectives. Launched in 2007, the ManagEnergy 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.

Please note that the same project cannot participate in the two competitions simultaneously.

The EUSEW Secretariat would like to thank all applicants for sending their project description to the 2014 edition of the Sustainable Energy Europe & ManagEnergy Awards.
