Energy Globe Awards

Since 1999, the Energy Globe Foundation from Upper Austria has been awarding projects that “make careful and economical use of resources and employ alternative energy sources”. The winners are selected by a panel including members from the UNIDO, the World Bank and the European Renewable Energy Council.
