About the European Solar Prize

EUROSOLAR established the European Solar Prize in 1994 to shine a light on renewable energy pioneers all over Europe. After over 25 years, the ESP has been awarded to more than 250 local and international actors from all parts of society. The award recognises towns and municipalities, communities, associations or organizations, architects, journalists and dedicated individuals. The Solar Prizes connect people who are paving the way into a renewable future with their innovation, commitment and hands-on work to make the #Energiewende happen.

In cooperation with EUROSOLAR's national sections, the winners are celebrated with a festive gathering in a different European city each year. EUROSOLAR is proud to present and award one of the most prestigious prizes in the field of renewable energy today.
