Amongst the 15 candidates, the following municipalities have convinced the jury with their outstanding communication concept:
1st prize: LAUSANNE (Switzerland)
The Swiss city of Lausanne won the first prize for its intensive internal communication in the municipal administration, strong external promotional activities and effective marketing strategy. The city’s application was a demonstration of how the Display® Campaign was projected on the background of intensive regular, long-term collective effort towards climate protection and energy efficiency.
It was awarded with energy efficient lighting panels from Philips. These well-designed panels are an ideal didactic tool to raise awareness on the energy impact of lighting. It helps building users understand that all lights are not created equally. Each panel illustrates how lighting equipments vary in their efficiency and, therefore, contribute differently to a building’s energy consumption and global CO2 emissions.
2nd prize: MONTREUX (Switzerland)
As an excellent starter Montreux impressed by the good results achieved in the first year of the campaign. Reaching almost 100% coverage of the Municipal building stock is outstanding. The Jury was also pleased by the long term track record of monitoring municipal energy consumption and transferring it into action which resulted in reductions for heat of 34% and for electricity of 40%.
Now, Montreux will be able to equip its canteens and staff kitchens with the 50 eCube energy-saving fridge devices, a prize that had been sponsored by eCube. Due to its specific design, the eCube ensures that refrigeration keeps food always at the correct temperature at a minimal energy consumption. It helps to save energy, reduce noise and environmental pollution.
