European Utility Industry Awards 2016

The European Utility Industry Awards recognise and celebrate individuals and projects that have shown outstanding commitment and accomplishments towards a sustainable energy sector. This year’s awards are split into five categories representing the pressing themes of today’s industry: Community Energy, Grid Intelligence, Energy Retail, Energy Revolution  and Energy Management.


Intelligent Buildings Europe

Best practice and solutions for sustainability!

Throughout the exhibition and in the Programme, there was a focus on the topic Intelligent Buildings Europe. This came in response to the growing demand from Utilities, ESCO’s, Financiers, Governments, Cities and Municipalities to reach the common goal on climate change and policy commitments by improving energy efficiency. This in combination with the added desire by the companies aspiring to turn green, was a perfect combination for inspiring discussions and business opportunities during the event.

Energy Revolution Europe

Developed in cooperation with revolution leaders!

With the 2020 Renewable Energy Directive looming, Europe is gearing up to fulfil at least 20% of its total energy needs with renewables. The urgency to hit these targets and the positive results of Cop 21 Paris have unleashed a huge opportunity for the industry to expand their offering regarding renewables. This theme is reflected in European Utility Week as a platform to discuss future scenarios and concrete solutions to achieve a sustainable future for the industry.

Initiate!

The revamped innovation programme is now Initiate!.

Highly praised for its truly innovative nature, the Initiate! Programme was a separate Hub on the show floor, hosting the Startup Programme, Young Talent Programme and its own Hub Session agenda including a multitude of workshops and networking sessions. Focused on stimulating innovation and discussion between new and more established professionals from the industry, Initiate! provided an environment where discussion, opportunities and new ideas were encouraged to help the industry thrive and grow.
