According to szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu, the Hungarian competition of one of the most illustrious international events of sustainability and energy efficiency ended last week. The aim of Energy Globe Hungary Awards is to ensure publicity besides acknowledgement, and to help popularise the environmental conscious approach.
Participants could enter in three categories that aim to shape corporate, municipal and future generation approach.
“The E.ON Group puts the new energy world into the focus of its activity. We encourage the development of systems using renewable energy, we research new, smart technologies and invest in digital solutions, which further contribute to a liveable future. For our children, for ourselves. We’re looking for partners for this aim” said Zsolt Jamniczky, the member of E.ON Hungária Inc.’s directorate, at the ceremony.
They plan on adding newer categories next year. Sustainable buildings, individual initiations and environmentally conscious ideas in a concept phase can also enter from next year.
Along with the award show held in Castle Garden Bazaar, at an exhibition visitors could get to know Solar Boat, Budapest University of Technology and Economics’ race boat powered by solar cells, Szelectricity, Győr’s Saint Stephen University’s electric car project, Cargobike’s freighter bicycle, and Replacc’s toyhouse made from garbage. Young fashion designer’s – Anna Vetlényi, Dorina Bakó, Bori Györök – eco-collections were also presented.
“Those who entered this competition understood the importance of change and decided to shape our joint future under their own lead. We should be really proud of them!” said climate researcher Diána Ürge-Vorsatz, the president of E.ON Energy Globe Hungary Award’s jury.
In the corporate category, the winner was LIDL’s site that went through a complex energy efficiency renovation and was developed with respect to holistic sustainability aspects.
In the future generation category, Mecsekerdő Zrt. Mókus Suli’s open-air school’s development to an eco-educational centre won E.ON’s 3 million forints worth project fund.
Municipalities competed for the development of a green, smart playground. Kaposvár’s project won with replacing their bus fleet with bio gas powered vehicles.
The most audience votes were received by LIDL, so they will represent Hungary at the Energy Globe Award, which has become one of the most illustrious international events of sustainability.
