The European Energy Award Gold

The European Energy Award Gold is the highest award given for municipal energy and climate protection activities at the European level. It is awarded to municipalities that have implemented at least 75 per cent of measures within their scope of action and have thus demonstrated an exemplary commitment to a sustainable energy future.

The award requires municipalities to be audited by two auditors, a national one and an international one. Applications for certification must be submitted to the national eea commission, which forwards them to the international office of the Forum eea, the certifying authority for the European Energy Award Gold.
