 Web   26/09 - 26/09/2019

The European Commission is launching the first edition of the RESponsible Island Prize, which is dedicated to islands with innovative and sustainable local renewable energy production for use in electricity, heating, cooling and transport. Carlos Moedas, Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, said: “Islands are perfect test labs for the deployment of innovative energy technologies. I hope this new prize will encourage many islands and other small communities to re-think the way they produce and consume energy. Europe needs all communities, big and small, to contribute to the clean energy transition”.

The three winners will receive a cash prize of €500,000, €250,000 and €100,000, respectively.

Through the prize, the Commission will contribute to fulfilling the objectives of the Political Declaration on Clean Energy on EU Islands and the Smart Islands Initiative.

The deadline for applications is 26 September 2019.

More information, including the Rules of contest, will be available in the coming days on the RESponsible Island Prize website.
