Energy Transition Award

The Energy Transition Award

The Energy Transition Award is a prestigious acknowledgement for the pioneers of the energy transition in the DACH region in various categories. Companies that succeed in comprehensively integrating the new energy world into their product and service portfolio are seen as role models for others.

Unlike in the traditional energy industry, customers – private households – are active players in the energy transition as well. They determine not only the demand by purchasing green power, renewable heat or biofuels, but also become suppliers themselves through their use of renewable energies.

Thus, companies are faced with the challenge of positioning themselves in the energy transition with innovative products and services for customers and their changing needs.
