Renewable Energies Cluster Hamburg (EEHH) to present awards for great, new technology

The Renewable Energies Cluster Hamburg (EEHH) will present the sixth German Renewables Award for forward-looking developments in renewable energies on November 30, 2017 in Hamburg’s Maritime Museum. The awards will be presented in the categories: “Most Innovative Product of the Year”, “Project of the Year”, “Thesis of the Year” and “Lifetime Achievement”. A seven-member, independent jury will select the winners.

Wind power innovations from northern Germany

Last year, Sönke Siegfriedsen won the German Renewables Award in the “Lifetime Achievement” category for his life-long contribution to wind energy technology. Siegfriedsen, who hails from north Friesland, initiated 50 patent families and 27 wind farms. Nils Gerke, a student at the University of Applied Sciences of Hamburg (HAW), won the award in the category “Thesis of the Year”. His M.A. thesis focused on data from wind farms to calculate nighttime turbulence. Such calculations can help identify suitable locations for wind farms.
