Climate change caused by our excess and waste in handling our resources is today’s top buzzword. Through global cooperation, through the joint efforts of each individual, a reversal is possible. Prerequisites are the utilization of sustainable technologies and the implementation of sustainable solutions. Projects that have achieved this are cordially invited to participate in the Energy Globe 2007.

There are many possibilities and solutions for today’s energy and climate challenges. The Energy Globe – the world’s most prestigious environmental award has been presenting such solutions for 9 years.

Every year the Energy Globe Awards are presented to the winners at the Hemicycle of the European Parliament in Brussels in collaboration with the EU Commission and EU Presidency. This underlines the value of the Energy Globe TV Gala being an international platform that is much appreciated.
