For the 7th time, the most innovative energy suppliers in the DACH region were honored with the Energiewende Award (Energy Transition Award) in the categories of electricity, heat, energy efficiency, mobility and energy transition as part of The smarter E Europe on June 15, 2023.
The sharp rise in energy prices has posed significant challenges for energy supply in the past and current year. This development has led to a pronounced rethinking of energy supply for end customers, particularly in the areas of heat supply, sustainable mobility, and renewable electricity generation. As intermediaries between the manufacturers of various renewable technologies and energy consumers, energy suppliers play a key role in the implementation of energy transition.
The Energy Transition Award is a reflection of society and shows that every company – from the local municipal utility to the international energy group – can and must make its contribution to the energy transition. The energy transition is as complex as the activities of the energy suppliers in the DACH region are diverse. In the electricity sector, a growing number of energy suppliers are offering classic products such as green electricity tariffs, photovoltaic systems and storage systems. With the continued strong growth of the electric mobility market, energy suppliers are becoming increasingly involved in this segment offering, for example, electricity tariffs for charging at home or at public charging stations as well as charging stations for private or commercial use or as part of the public infrastructure.
Although the heating sector is still technologically dominated by conventional heating systems, energy suppliers increasingly include renewable heating systems such as heat pumps or solar thermal in their portfolios. In addition, energy suppliers are expanding services relating to heat generation and are helping customers avoid heat loss. A wide range of consulting services in the field of energy efficiency completes the portfolios of numerous energy suppliers.
