11 May 2012
For the 2012 round of the award competition, ManagEnergy received a record 64 projects from 23 countries, covering a wide range of energy efficiency and renewable energy topics.
The three finalists were selected by a high-level jury composed of key actors representing public authorities, energy agencies, city networks, and industry and citizens associations from across Europe.
The rigorous evaluation procedure considered the projects’ impact, sustainability and replication potential.
The 2012 ManagEnergy Local Energy Action Award finalists are:
- Community Power Cornwall, a co-operative developed by Community Energy Plus, an
award-winning fuel poverty organisation in Cornwall, UK. The scheme brings together
investors and communities for the development of renewable energy installations.
- Energy Efficiency Measures in Multi-Residential Buildings, an initiative of the Zemgale
Regional Energy Agency in Latvia, which focuses on the refurbishment of multi-residential
buildings, a major consumer of energy in the region and in the country as a whole.
- Samsø 2.0 - Energy Education, an integrated initiative developed by Samsø Energy Academy
to help the Danish island achieve complete fossil fuel independence, and become a prime
destination for sustainable energy planning and capacity building.
The winner will be announced on 19 June in Brussels, during a prestigious ceremony along with the
Sustainable Energy Europe Awards.
Each of the nominated projects will be showcased during the Annual ManagEnergy Conference, which will take place on 20 June.
