15. June 2016

ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA congratulates this year’s winners of the Energy Globe Denmark and Norway. As an enthusiastic cooperation partner of the Energy Globe Awards, ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA will host an Award Ceremony on 31st August 2016 in Copenhagen.

Electrifying the capital - Winner of Energy Globe Denmark

In 2013, the Capital Region of Denmark in collaboration with the municipalities launched a green transition program. Since the transportation sector had been identified as one of the obstacles in becoming a climate friendly and healthy city, the goal was set to promote electric transportation possibilities by means of public private partnerships, public procurement and awareness activities. The aim was to reduce CO2 emissions and noise, to ensure cleaner air and to create more jobs. 1,800 electric vehicles were acquired in collaboration with local companies, 400 BMW i3 free flow electric vehicles were combined with public transportation, and promotion and awareness activities around the topic of e-mobility were carried out.

Inspiria Science Center - Winner of Energy Globe Norway

The Østfold County in Norway decided to build the Inspiria Science Center to mark knowledge on sustainability and natural science as a key driver in the future development of the county. The center was designed as a low-energy building with outstanding insulation. Special treatment plant recycles waste water, while electricity is generated by a wind turbine and solar panels. Solar thermal collectors are used to heat water for the building. All of these facilities are part of a larger exhibition and can be seen in action by visitors. Last but not least, Inspiria Science Center is adapted to the surrounding landscape with the three wings radiating out from the two-story atrium at the heart of the building.
