Award Ceremony of the European Solar Prize 2019

Friday, 15 November 2019 | Belval Campus, Luxembourg

The success of the energy transition depends crucially on innovation and commitment from all parts of society. To shine a light on outstanding examples of the energy transition, EUROSOLAR is proud to present the European Solar Prize once again this year. The Solar Prize is awarded to cities, communities, architects, municipal and private-sector companies, associations, organisations and cooperatives, journalists and citizens who actively promote renewable energies through their projects and initiatives.

The award ceremony will take place in cooperation with EUROSOLAR Luxembourg on Friday, 15 November 2019, at Belval Campus in Luxembourg. Please find the program flyer here.

We are happy to present the winners of this year's awards and celebrate their achievements together. Furthermore, we welcome Luxembourg’s Minister of Energy, Claude Turmes and Prof. Susanne Siebentritt, University of Luxembourg, who will present the energy transition in Luxembourg in an additional segment.

Admission to the event is free of charge; early registration is requested. We look forward to welcoming you in Luxembourg.
