Antonio Cerrillo, editor of the environment area of ​​La Vanguardia and the Natural channel in its digital edition, has obtained this year the European Solar Prize “Eurosolar” (European Solar Prize), recognition granted by the Eurosolar association, in its Media category Communication. Antonio Cerrillo, La Vanguardia and its Natural channel have spent years paying attention to the development of renewable energies, and especially in the field of solar energy, both in Spain and in Europe.

With the annual award of the European Solar Prize “Eurosolar”, the aim is to recognize the actors who contribute from the various public spheres to “give new impetus to a decentralized energy change based on renewable sources,” said the jury.

Eurosolar – which brings together European companies and professionals in the sector – was created with the aim of accelerating the energy transition in Europe and publicizing companies, entities and people who contribute to promoting the spread of renewable energy.

In the category of municipalities and cities, the “Euroslar” award went to the town of Kaposvár (Hungary); in architecture and solar planning at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation in Greece; in transport, in Oslo, and in that of owners and operators with renewable installers, in the canton of Schaffhausen, Switzerland; and in Education, in the Lego Group, among other awards.

Having previously been held in Rome, Prague and Barcelona, ​​this year’s edition of the European Solar Prize will be awarded in Vienna. The award ceremony is made this Saturday by Hans Otto Schmidt, President of Eurosolar in Austria, at a ceremony chaired by Thomas Reindl, President of the Vienna City Council.
