The 13th nova naturstroum award ceremony rewarded nine outstanding projects dedicated to energy efficiency.
The most recent prize-giving ceremony of the nova naturstroum fund took place at the Lycée technique d’Ettelbruck, in the presence of the Minister of the Environment, Carole Dieschbourg, and the director of the school, Lucien Klein. In addition to the 930 projects rewarded with targeted bonuses, 9 particularly innovative actions were honoured at this ceremony.
