The energy efficiency concepts to be submitted should conclusively demonstrate how energy efficiency can be increased. The expert jury will evaluate all concepts received and select three finalists. These three selected companies will be given the opportunity at the dena Congress to compete in a live pitch for their concepts in order to win the favour of the audience present. An interactive voting will then decide which concept will be awarded the audience prize.
