Energy Globe Award India 2016 for the project "NEXTDROP"

Energy Globe
6. October 2016

NextDrop, this year's winner of the Energy Globe Award in India, implemented a sustainable and outstanding project. The NextDrop SMS alert service informs its subscribers about when their water supply would be turned on, and when they could next expect water. This saves an average resident 13 hours of waiting-time per month. A sustainable initiative for a sustainable future!

The Austrian Foreign Trade Center (Advantage Austria) organized a solemn ceremony during which the nominees for the famous Energy Globe Award were presented. Anurag Sridharan was awarded with a winner's certificate for a great initiative which contributes to an intact environment. Many more national winners will be announced and honored in their country in cooperation with the foreign trade centers of the Austrian Economic Chamber.

Committed people all around the world develop solutions for the most pressing environmental problems of our time like resource scarcity, air and water pollution, erosion, climate change or dependence on fossil fuels. Although these solutions are readily available, they often remain unheard of. Energy Globe gives them a voice and presents them to a large audience in order to make them visible and encourage others to come up with their own innovative solution.

With 177 participating countries, projects from all over the world are submitted, ranging from small and simple initiatives to large scale high-end ones.  The national winners of the Energy Globe Award were published under the patronage of UNESCO and in cooperation with UNEP at www.energyglobe.info on 5th June, the UN World Environment Day. On this date, a global awareness raising campaign has started for best practice projects which help to save the planet. The national winners have one thing in common: all of them have understood that the environment is not protected by words but by action! Each and every one of us can contribute!

A free online check is offered during the campaign to calculate the individual energy saving potential. The country customized solar tool informs about the generation and use of solar energy. The total potential energy savings and solar power will be published continuously.

Every single action counts! Submit your sustainable project to the Energy Globe Award 2017! Submission will be open again from the end of May.
