Sustainable Energy Week
, an initiative of the European Commission, first took place in 2006. Today, it is organised by Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation, in close cooperation with the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Energy.
EU Sustainable Energy Week showcases activities dedicated to energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions
. It is designed to spread best practices, inspire new ideas and build alliances
to help meet the EU’s energy and climate goals.
Their aim is to form a bigger picture out of multiple individual efforts to motivate change through a varied programme of events.
Every year hundreds of organisations and individuals participate in EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) by hosting Energy Day events and activities that promote energy efficiency and renewable energy sources.
Through bottom-up efforts, organisers of EUSEW Energy Days, events and activities connect directly with citizens and energy stakeholders at the local, regional and national levels.
There are two ways to become a part of EUSEW. You can enter your project in the 2012 Sustainable Energy Europe Awards competition, and/or organise an Energy Day activity or event in Brussels or in your city, town or region between 18 and 22 June 2012.
