The climate crisis is the most crucial challenge of our time, and cities play a key role in driving the shift to a low-carbon economy. Helsinki wants to offer a platform for new, sustainable and innovative solutions. Helsinki Energy Challenge seeks to find solutions, by means of which the city can be heated in a sustainable way without coal and with as little biomass as possible during the upcoming decades. The grand prize of the competition is one million euros.
The City of Helsinki lives up to its global responsibility in the fight against climate change and is committed to sharing the results of the competition openly, in order to allow other cities to benefit from them in their own climate work.
