Low Carbon Hub wins European Solar Prize


Award-winning social enterprise, Low Carbon Hub is to be awarded a European Solar Prize 2018 at an award ceremony in Bonn on 17 November 2018.

Every year EUROSOLAR awards the European Solar Prize to role models and pioneers in the field of renewable energy and brings a wide variety of energy transition actors from all parts of the sector and globe together.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of EUROSOLAR and so the award ceremony will take place in its home town of Bonn. Since 1994 the European Solar Prize has been awarded to municipalities, companies, associations and organisations, architects, journalists and private individuals who have demonstrated their commitment to developing a new, decentralised energy system. 

Barbara Hammond, CEO, Low Carbon Hub said:

“With the publication of the most recent IPCC report detailing the immense costs of taking no action to tackle the global issue of climate breakdown, its more important than ever for us to be working towards an energy system that is clean, renewable, and puts local power in the hands of local people. Everyone at the Low Carbon Hub, including our members, are committed to working towards this future and it’s brilliant for our work to be recognised with this European award.”
