The long awaited winner of the 2016 Citizenergy Project of the Year award is due to be announced on 1 February in the halls of the EU Parliament during a special session on citizen engagement in sustainable energy. The award celebrates the one-year anniversary of the Citizenergy portal for community energy investment. The overwhelmingly clear results were a product of votes cast by hundreds of individuals, each of whom rated crowdfunded and cooperative based energy projects according to their contribution to a sustainable energy future.
Fittingly, the awards ceremony will take place within the framework of a special EU Parliament event on citizen engagement, hosted by MEP Dario Tamburrano of Italy and organised by the Active Citizenship Network. Members of the press and other interested parties are cordially invited to attend the event:

On 1 February in Brussels, Belgium
From 10:00 to 12:00
At the European Parliament, Room ASP7H1
Online registration closes 20 January 2017 – admission possible only with valid registration.
