In the early 1980s “Today’s Energies Award” was created by the Regional Council and the regional delegation of ADEM in order to encourage forward-thinking sustainable energy approaches and projects within the region.
Back in the 1980s, energy efficiency and renewable energy projects did not have the same attention as they have today. Thus the Regional Council and the regional delegation of ADEM decided to create an energy award contest to raise public awareness, encourage local initiatives as well as highlight regional political commitments in this area. This gave birth to the “Concours Energies d’Aujourd’hui” (Today’s Energies Award) in the early 1980s as a key communication tool encouraging the development of forward-thinking sustainable energy approaches and projects in the region.
