“Without sustainable energy generation and storage capability, in addition to smart grids, climate protection goals are not achievable. The Handelsblatt Energy Award aims to promote the technologies catalyzing this development. With the market-ready systems for private residences offered by the award winner, many private households can now do their part to protect our planet”
said Dr. Olaf Heil, Technical Managing Director of Stadtwerke Karlsruhe, board member of the Energy Academy and Handelsblatt Energy Award jury member.
Since 2015 the Handelsblatt Energy Awards have distinguished outstanding projects in the energy industry that use renewable power sources and promote storage and distribution. The annual award is given in four categories: Industry, Mobility, Smart City and Start-up. The Smart City category includes scalable business models with a high degree of innovation and potential whose added value lies in digitization, networking, energy efficiency and reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
