Apply to the Global District Energy Climate Awards

Energy is vital to the functioning of our societies. We need solutions that make it possible to combine sound economic growth with little environmental impact and customer convenience. District Energy is the key to sustainability. Its infrastructure enables the biggest carbon footprint reductions by allowing cities to harvest the potential renewable energies and surplus heat that otherwise would be wasted and thereby substituting fossil fuels. The awards provide global recognition for District Energy schemes demonstrating a high level of energy efficiency and innovation. The six award categories are:

·                     NEW SCHEME

·                     MODERNISATION

·                     EXPANSION

·                     EMERGING MARKET

·                     DEVELOPING COUNTRY

·                     ‘OUT OF THE BOX’

We are once again looking for the best in class installed systems, so show us what you’ve been up to! Don’t wait and apply today!

The Global District Energy Climate Award and its event is the occasion where outstanding innovative projects are awarded, the  6th Global District Energy Climate Awards Ceremony will be held in conjunction with the 1st Sustainable District Energy Conference in Reykjavik, Iceland together with:
SAMORKA, the federation of the Icelandic electricity industry, district heating, waterworks and sewage utilities in Iceland
Iceland Geothermal Cluster (IGC) is a non-profit industry driven cluster organisation, which focuses on the field of geothermal energy

Countries consider how to meet their commitments and goals regarding climate change district heating and cooling has become a major consideration in lowering carbon emissions. Approximately 50% of energy consumption in the EU comes from space heating and cooling. Heating represents the largest part of this load and by transitioning away from fossil fuels towards renewable resources, such as geothermal, CO2 emissions could be cut significantly. The 1st SUSTAINABLE DISTRICT ENERGY CONFERENCE (SDEC) will give insight into the potential impact of utilizing renewable district energy on energy security, greenhouse gas emissions, improved quality of life, and lower heating costs.
