About the European Solar Prize

The European Solar Prize Award was established in 1994 by EUROSOLAR in cooperation with its national sections and is one of the most prestigious prizes in the field of renewable energy. It has since been handed out every year to more than 200 local actors overall who, by means of innovation and commitment, point the way into a renewable future. The award is adressed 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.

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.
