We are pleased to announce the launch of the 2nd edition of the Roger Léron Award, created by FEDARENE. The purpose of this Award is to acknowledge a long-standing overall contribution to sustainable energy (not a single project) at the regional and/or local level in Europe.

Indeed, we believe that the regional and local levels of governance play a central role in energy and climate issues; through their responsibility for many policy areas (energy, transport, housing,...), their proximity to citizens, their thorough knowledge of the territory, and their having a greater flexibility - more so than national governments.

The winner - an individual(s) or an organisation - will receive the trophy during a ceremony on 15 June in Brussels. We invite you to nominate an individual(s) or organisation by 31 March 2016.

The Award is named in memory of Roger Léron who was president of FEDARENE from 1990 to 2007 and a great contributor to the regional and local sustainable energy field throughout his life.
