Award Ceremony of the European Solar Prize 2018

Saturday, 17 November 2018, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany

Since 1994 EUROSOLAR has recognized outstanding commitment in the field of renewable energy with the annual European Solar Prize. Ground-breaking projects and initiatives from all sectors of society are selected with the purpose of making pioneers and innovators the focus of public awareness and of giving fresh impetus to an energy turnaround that is decentralized and based on renewables.

Having previously been held in Prague, Barcelona and Vienna, this year’s edition of the European Solar Prize will be awarded in EUROSOLAR’S hometown of Bonn – within the framework of the 30th anniversary of EUROSOLAR and the associated annual partnership with the city of Bonn. We are pleased to present this year's award winners on Saturday, 17 November 2018, at Kunstmuseum Bonn – Germany.

We cordially invite you to attend the festive award ceremony. After greetings and a panel about the importance of local and regional engagement for a successful European energy transition, the award winners will be presented to the audience through interviews, presentations and movies. A cosy get-together with snacks and drinks will complete the event and will give the opportunity to talk to winners and guests.

About the European Solar Prize

The European Solar Prize Award was established in 1994 by EUROSOLAR in cooperation with its national sections. It has since been handed out every year to towns and municipalities, community businesses, associations or organizations, architects, journalists and individuals for their extraordinary accomplishments and significant contributions to the use and expansion of renewable energy in Europe. With the Solar Prize EUROSOLAR recognizes outstanding commitment to renewable energy.

The prize is given to make pioneers and leaders the focus of public attention all over Europe and to give fresh impetus to a renewable energy-based and decentralized energy turnaround. It honors outstanding and innovative projects and initiatives from all parts of society. At the end of each year the award winners are celebrated at a festive gathering in changing European countries.
