The German-Baltic Chamber of Commerce initiated and realised the award ceremonies as part of the Technology Showcase event format. Among the buildings honoured were well-known Baltic landmarks, such as the Latvian National Library located in the capital of Riga.

Demand for technology made in Germany is enormous, and German energy solutions, innovations and products are frequently used on a global scale. Cooperation on construction projects between German businesses and entities abroad has long been fruitful and productive. The Technology Showcase series is meant to highlight the contribution of these German technologies to the sustainability of buildings and cities all over the world, which is often invisible.

More Technology Showcase events will be organised for the course of 2018. Please consult the event calendar for specific dates and further details. The format has been established by the German Energy Solutions Initiative, with funding provided by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
