Company Announcement 16 March 2021 at 8.30 a.m. (CET)
Savosolar participates in two finalist teams in the Helsinki Energy Challenge competition
The City of Helsinki will announce the finalists and winner of its Helsinki Energy Challenge competition in a virtual event today, Tuesday 16 March 2021, from 13:00 to 15:30 (CET). Savosolar is involved in two finalist teams (HIVE and Sustainable Heat Coalition).
The City of Helsinki announced the competition in November 2019 and received more than 250 proposals by the deadline on how to make Helsinki’s heating carbon-neutral by 2035. Numerous major cities around the world support and follow the competition, e.g. Toronto, Amsterdam, Vancouver and Leeds. Helsinki selected ten finalists from the proposals it received, and Savosolar is involved in two of them. Summaries of the competition proposals for both groups can be found on the Helsinki Energy Challenge website https://energychallenge.hel.fi and on Savosolar’s website www.savosolar.com after all competition proposals and winners have been announced.
Jari Varjotie, Savosolar’s CEO: “Helsinki has set itself a commendable ambitious goal of moving to carbon-neutral heating by 2035. At the same time, Helsinki took a bold pioneering role in organizing a world-class competition on how to make the transition to carbon-free heating as competitive as possible. Savosolar is very pleased to be part of two out of ten finalist teams. It shows that our products and services are interesting and competitive even in the northern latitudes. I believe that the international attention given to the competition will open up much more opportunities for Savosolar to implement clean heat systems around the world; and hopefully largely together with the teams these competition proposals have been made. Welcome to follow the announcement and excite with us who will win the Helsinki Energy Challenge.
