The project has been awarded in the framework of the EU Sustainable Energy Week.
First, a high-level jury appointed WiseGRID as Best Energy Project of Europe in the category of Businesses. One of the reasons WiseGRID stood out is because it proves that social revolution and innovative technologies can go hand in hand.
Secondly, the project received the EUSEW Citizens Award, which was awarded by a popular vote!
Antonio Marques, director of ETRA, the coordinator of WiseGRID, explains: “We are very happy for both awards in fact, but especially for the Citizen’s award because this means it is not just the technology who is ready to help push forward the energy transition, but society as well is willing to embrace the energy transition. This is a good stimulus for us to keep on working hard to make the WiseGRID solutions a reality.”
The project's partners would like to thank everyone who honored us with a vote and of course to EUSEW excellent organization and hospitality!
