U4energy closes its second competition cycle!

The second edition of the U4energy pan-European competition has come to an end. Schools from across Europe and beyond have submitted their projects, aspiring to the titles of national and/or European winners!


A great big ‘Thank you’ goes out to all participants who took part in the competition! By sustaining action and dialogue around the very topical theme of energy efficiency, participants have moved their school towards a more sustainable environment. For this reason, all participants are winners – congratulations!

Over the summer, dedicated networks of national contact points are coordinating national juries to select national winners for each of the three U4energy competition categories. Results will be announced by the end of summer 2012.

Out of the national winners, a grand European jury will select six European finalists. Winners will be invited to Brussels for the European Award ceremony. The European Commissioner for Energy, Mr. Günther Oettinger, will be invited to hand out the prizes to the European winners. During their trip to Brussels, finalists will enjoy a tailor-made educational and cultural programme.

Are you looking for an icebreaker? There are plenty of great and innovative ideas to introduce energy efficiency in the classroom. Simply browse the U4energy website for inspiration. See what schools across Europe and beyond have been doing by looking at the Gallery of entries, or visit the Resources section.

If you have any questions or require further assistance, please feel free to contact the U4energy team or talk to your national contact point in your native language.

The U4energy team wishes you all a great summer and is looking forward to hearing from you in September!
