Samso Energy Academy wins ManagEnergy Local Energy Action Award 2012

19 June 2012

ManagEnergy is an initiative of the EU's Intelligent Energy - Europe (IEE) programme. The sixth edition of the ManagEnergy Local Energy Action Award attracted a record 64 submissions from local and regional sustainable energy initiatives in 23 countries. 

The 2012 winner is:   Samso 2.0 - Energy Education, Denmark. 

In a country with a long tradition of sustainable solutions supported by green policies,  Samso was elected in 1997 to be Denmark's renewable energy island - a demonstration center for proven technology in renewable energy solutions. The three main aims of  the Samso Energy Academy, established in 2007, demonstrate a fully-integrated approach: to achieve an entirely fossil-free community, to increase the number of partnership satellite islands/cities and to train and educate national and international participants, whether stakeholders, schools or the general public. An excellent best-practice example, the project is currently being replicated in other countries, from Ireland and Germany to South Korea and Japan. 

Background: The EU awards are a highlight of EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW), during which stakeholders and policymakers help generate new ideas and actions to support Europe in reaching its energy goals. Taking place between 18 - 22 June, EUSEW 2012 included a high-level policy conference in Brussels, with an attendance of around 4,000 people, as well as more than 900 ‘Energy Days' across Europe.
