The EUSEW Innovation Award recognises outstanding ongoing or recently completed EU-funded projects that show an original and innovative path towards the clean energy transition.
The EUSEW Local Energy Action Award recognises implemented sustainable energy actions, driven by a group of citizens or consumers (associated with a municipality or other stakeholders), which contribute to the clean energy transition at the community or local level.
The EUSEW Woman in Energy Award recognises women who lead outstanding activities that, if replicated, help to advance the clean energy transition in Europe. Particular attention is placed on efforts to drive the gender mainstreaming agenda and support equality and equal opportunities in the energy sector.
Finalists are chosen by a high-level jury from a shortlist of the year’s most impactful projects and actions for clean, secure and efficient energy, and the winners are decided by an online public vote. A film crew visits the locations of the finalists' activities and interview key actors to feature them in EUSEW communications.
The three finalists for each award category are invited to the Awards ceremony on 11 June 2024 in Brussels.
