ener.CON Europe Award 2019: The winners are…

Another year, another successful award ceremony. As part of the ener.CON Europe conference, we.CONECT once again presented the prestigious ener.CON Europe Award. The event brings together over 150 energy efficiency experts from all energy intensive industries in Europe.

On the evening of day one all energy efficiency leaders took part in the ener.CON Europe Award ceremony and voted live for the best projects in the field of energy and resource efficiency. All participating companies and projects were nominated prior to the conference by the ener.CON Europe jury after we.CONECT received a wealth of exciting and complex applications.

We reviewed all applications and selected three nominees for the ener.CON Europe Award 2019 in the category “Outstanding Energy Management”.

Winner of the ener.CON Europe Award 2019 in the category ‘Outstanding Energy Management’ were Mr. Christian Hein and Mr Ulf Gehrckens, Aurubis AG with project “Industrial Heat: A Climate Alliance of Aurubis and enercity’’.

As the results were even, the second place shared Mr Wolfgang Haider from Borealis AG and Mr Taner Ozdemir from Erdemir Iron & Steel Works and their teams with projects ”Successful Borealis EU-wide implementation of ISO 50001 Energy Management System’’ and ‘’Erdemir Power Plant Optimisation Project‘’ respectively.

For the very first time, the ener.CON Europe Award was also selecting outstanding projects in the special category “Energy of the Future”: Winner was Evgeny Variagin with Solar Chernobyl LLC’s project “Solar Chernobyl”.

The award winners of the ener.CON Europe Award not only received a trophy and a certificate proving their excellence, we.CONECT also donated 1,000 € on behalf of the winners to a charity project. This year Tierschutz Berlin was selected and we were honoured to welcome Beate Kaminski and Petra Schomburg to the event who represented the charity and shared a few insights into their honourable day to day work.
