The Styrian Government and the Energie Steiermark AG jointly tender the “Energy Globe STYRIA AWARD” and thus award the best Styrian eco-innovations in the fields of energy and environment. According to the European Commission, "eco-innovation is any form of innovation causing or intending significant and demonstrable progress towards the goal of sustainable development by reducing environmental impact, enhancing resilience to environmental pressures or effecting a more efficient and responsible use of natural resources." The Energie Agentur Steiermark is pleased to act as organizer of the event since 2003.

 The Styrian categories - and thus the prices of the Energy Globe STYRIA AWARD are:

  • Research - research activities with a high degree of innovation
  • Application - eco-innovative products, services, business models, processes and campaigns
  • Municipality - outstanding engagement at local government level
  • Youth and educational projects - projects initiated and/or implemented by young people (school or pupil projects, projects of students or youth associations, etc.) and educational projects
  • focus category "buildings" - projects that boost the decarbonization of the building sector

The Energy Globe Styria Award has been organized since 2003 on behalf of the Styrian Government by the Energy Agency Styria with great pleasure. The submission process itself is handled annually by the Energy Globe Foundation in autumn. The projects submitted for evaluation in Styria are being evaluated by a top-class Styrian jury and nominated for the Styria Award, and subsequently recommended for the Energy Globe Award. The awards ceremony for the Energy Globe Styria Award usually takes place in April or May of the following year in a festive setting.
