Applications for the German Renewables Award are being accepted until the deadline of May 17, 2019. The Hamburg Renewable Energy Cluster (EEHH) will present the awards on November 28, 2019. A jury of experts consisting of representatives from science and industry will select the winner.
Awards in five categories
Prizes are awarded for the Product Innovation of the Year, Project of the Year, Student Work of the Year and Life’s Work. A journalistic prize is awarded for outstanding reporting on the energy transition. The Hamburg-based copper producer Aurubis AG won the 2018 prize in the “Project of the Year” category. The project converted copper in such a way that 60 megawatts of waste heat have been supplying HafenCity East since late 2018. More than 20,000 tonnes of CO2 per year are avoided. Laura Haffner, the winner of the “Student Work of the Year Wind Energy”, developed a methodology in her master’s thesis that minimises losses of power on wind farms.
