About the Energy Efficiency Awards

The Energy Efficiency Awards in Slovenia were organized by the German – Slovene Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AHK Slovenia) in April 2021. The AHK Slovenia has invited German companies that have successfully implemented innovative energy-efficient technologies in Slovene buildings to submit their most promising reference projects. Through a competitive selection process by our expert jury, six German companies have been chosen to receive one of the desired awards and present their building solutions to a broad range of experts, decision makers and media representatives.

The Energy Efficiency Awards in Slovenia is funded within the German Energy Solutions program of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. Its aim is to recognize outstanding achievements of German technology suppliers in Slovenia, showcasing technologies and innovations that contribute to increasing energy efficiency in Slovene buildings. It is designed to help German companies strengthen their position in the Slovene market and make new connections within the sustainable energy and building sector. The awards provide participating German companies the chance to showcase their technologies and services that focus on increasing overall building performances.

The program of the online-event included discussion by industry experts on energy efficiency in Slovene buildings, the video presentation of the six final projects, the award ceremony and a final digital networking event, giving you the opportunity to exchange ideas and explore business opportunities with industry pioneers and experts.

The Energy Efficiency Awards are part of the German Energy Solutions Initiative of the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy to recognise the positive impact German energy efficiency technologies have on Slovenia's efforts to become more energy efficient.
