Sustainable Ålidhem in finals in European Sustainability competition

Bostaden has with the project Sustainable Ålidhem made it to the finals of the Sustainable Energy Europe awards. The project is selected from a total of 224 contestants in the category Living. In Sweden, only Växjö has won the award before.

First launched in 2006, the Sustainable Energy Europe Awards recognise and promote outstanding projects in energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and clean transport. Designed to welcome projects that contribute to the Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and have a proven impact. The SEE Awards integrate five different categories according to different policy strands: awareness raising projects (Communicating), educational programmes (Learning), buildings (Living), energy savings (Consuming) and clean mobility schemes (Travelling). 

Sustainable Ålidhem has been nominated in the category Living for the project that aims to make buildings more energy efficient and to equip them with renewable energy systems.

Launched in 2007, the ManagEnergy Local Energy Action Award is expressly designed to reward public authorities and energy agencies at the local and regional level that have shown outstanding achievements in the area of renewable energy, energy efficiency and clean transport.

For the first time, the application and selection process of the Sustainable Energy Europe and ManagEnergy awards competitions have been merged.

The jury has been chosen by the EU Commission and consist of six experts in energy efficiency, renewable energy and transports. The winners will be announced at the award during the Sustainable Energy Week in Brussels at the end of June.
