14 Nordic solutions

The 14 solutions were the nominees for The Nordic Energy Municipality 2011 Award under the Nordic Council of Ministers that recognizes efforts by actively involving local actors, business communities and citizens, and engaging the local community, and the region at large, in the global green transition.

The Danish municipality of Albertslund was appointed the Nordic Energy Municipality 2011. Moreover, the Norwegian municipality of Drammen and the municipality of Lidköping from Sweden received a special recognition for their projects. Finnish Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen handed over the award in connection with the annual Nordic summit early November 2011.
