The European Solar Prize 2019 was awarded in the very heart of Europe, in beautiful Luxembourg. Eight ground-breaking projects for the energy transition from six different nations have been honored in eight categories.

EUROSOLAR presents eight pioneering projects for the European energy revolution: Today the European Association for Renewable Energies and its Luxembourgian section honoured eight nominees from six different countries with the European Solar Prize 2019 at the Campus Belval in Luxembourg’s picturesque Esch-sur-Alzette. The prize was awarded in the categories municipalities, solar architecture, commercial companies, local or regional associations, education and vocational training and one world cooperation as well as for special achievement. Promising examples of actors, who demonstrate that the European energy transition is already successfully being put into practice ‘from below‘, are this year’s award winners.
