Yesterday the EU Sustainable Energy Week Secretariat got in touch with the Smart Islands Initiative http://www.smartislandsinitiative.eu concerning the Sustainable Energy Awards, which recognize outstanding innovation in energy efficiency and renewables in Europe.
The great news is that an Energy Islands category has been included in this year’s competition, rewarding initiatives to increase sustainable energy security in communities not connected to a wider grid. You can read more about the Awards competition, including the categories, eligibility and assessment criteria on http://eusew.eu. The deadline for applications has been extended by one week to 10 March.
Yet another proof that islands are in the spotlight, says Alkisti Florou at Smart islands Initiative!
