The Roger Léron Award celebrates outstanding individuals who have significantly contributed to the energy transition at a local or regional level and who have also made a difference at the European level. The Prize is named in memory of Roger Léron who was one of the founders and former President of FEDARENE as well as a great contributor to the regional and local sustainable energy field throughout his life.
After six successful editions, the 2022 award comes with a thematic focus, Energy Efficiency Leaders. This topic reflects one of the core missions of regions and their local/regional energy agencies, who are key delivery agents of EU’s Energy Efficiency policies and programmes. The Ukraine crisis and the EU’s response with REPowerEU further highlighted how energy efficiency will be crucial in the next months and years to cut our energy dependence and increase the resilience of the EU’s energy system. Great leaders are already at work and have been for many years now to achieve this.
The 12 Energy Efficiency Leaders nominated to the Roger Léron Award 2022 have already been revealed. Who will the expert jury elect as Roger Léron Award 2022 winner and finalists? Register to find out!
This event is also the opportunity to discover a number of less known local initiatives in the field of sustainable energy which deserve recognition, from individuals who have their territory’s future at heart. Members of the Award Jury and EU representatives will give speeches, the nominees will be introduced, and the evening will end with a celebratory cocktail.
