Pioneer of the energy transition
The Lake Constance Foundation is awarded the European Solar Prize 2020 for its commitment over 25 years. Its tireless and diverse commitment to the expansion of renewable energies, as well as a nature-compatible and socially fair energy transition, was the decisive factor for this important award by EUROSOLAR. The prize has been awarded since 1994 and is considered Europe’s most prestigious award in this field.
The European Solar Prize 2020 is given to nine prize winners from seven different nations who are particularly committed to the energy transition. The winners in the categories of municipalities, solar architecture, industry, local/regional associations/associations, mobility, media and education contribute with their outstanding projects to renewable and decentralized energy supply in Europe. The Lake Constance Foundation wins the prize in the category regional organizations.
Working together for the energy transition
One reason for the success of the work of the Lake Constance Foundation is the approach of seeking exchange with different stakeholders in all difficult or less difficult areas of energy system transformation. Thus, all international or national projects are dialogue-oriented. Current projects in the field of energy system transformation call for a greater use of renewable energies and describe a way to achieve this for the protection of the environment and the well-being of nature, without forgetting acceptance and enthusiasm for energy system transformation. Current projects in the field of energy system transformation, such as the Coalescce, SocialRES and CSSC-Lab, call for greater use of renewable energies and describe a way in which this can be achieved to protect the environment and benefit nature, without forgetting the acceptance and enthusiasm for energy system transformation.
