SUNfarming wins Eurosolar Award 2019

SUNfarming received the Eurosolar award for their work on programs such as their Food & Energy greenhouses, photovoltaic agriculture plants, and educational Solar Traning Centres - all of which are specifically designed for rural development.

According to Eurosolar, the reason that SUNfarming received the award was because they share a common goal with Eurosolar. "A goal towards 100% decentralized, renewable energies for all. It is cooperating with people in emerging economies to produce food and energy simultaneously and in a sustainable way."

The prize, which has been awarded since 1994, is intended to honor the energy and inventiveness of local and regional players and to give new impulses for a regenerative and decentralized energy transition in Europe.

The award ceremony of the European Solar Prize 2019 took place on the 15th of November on the Belval Campus in Luxembourg. The Solar Prize will be awarded to cities, municipalities, architects, municipal and private companies, associations, organizations and cooperatives, journalists and citizens actively promoting renewable energies through their projects and initiatives. EUROSOLAR honors eight pioneering projects from six different countries.

Luxembourg Energy Minister Claude Turmes also attended the awards ceremony, as did Prof. Susanne Siebentritt from the University of Luxembourg, who presented the energy transition in Luxembourg in another segment.

In his welcome speech, Henri Kox, former Chairman of EUROSOLAR Luxembourg and newly appointed Luxembourg Housing Minister, said: "The energy transition is a huge challenge for our society. It can only be achieved if we pool our efforts and ideas, learn from each other and work together for change. Only in this way can we shape a sustainable future. I cordially invite you to seek inspiration from our Renewable Energy Pioneers."

Prof. Peter Droege, President of EUROSOLAR e.V., also underlined the importance of civic engagement for the energy revolution: "I am glad that today we have been able to honor people who are working on solutions for a local and regional energy transition. Whether church, industry or youth movement: all award winners have innovations in common that are practical and sustainable. They serve as trendsetting examples of renewable energies in Europe."
