The Euroheat & Power team won this year’s “Association Leadership Award” for its hard work, commitment and outstanding leadership! The news was revealed during the 2018 European Association Awards ceremony which took place on 23 February in Brussels.


The European Association Awards, at their second edition in 2018, recognise excellence and exceptional quality delivered by associations across Europe. The “Association Leadership Award” in particular highlights leadership expertise in overcoming particular challenges, or strategies that have brought proven advancement or benefits to the association and its members. The judges looked for the long and short term goals to develop the association, strategies employed and their impact, innovative approaches to leading the association as well as success in meeting targets and goals.


And we are very pleased that they found all this in the Euroheat & Power’s team effort to bring our association “Towards the centre”.



Since 2014, Euroheat & Power has engaged in a new chapter: a team leadership story that has energised the association and the European district energy sector. Disappointed to find itself left out from previous strategic debates on the future of the energy transition, our entire organisation has worked with passion and a strong sense of purpose to turn these setbacks into a successful vision that guided us “Towards the Centre”. We successfully placed the overall issue of heating and cooling on the European policy agenda and our sector is identified as major contributor to the first ever EU Heating & Cooling strategy published by the European Commission in 2016. Ongoing negotiations on the Clean Energy Package reflect our sector’s new role and have shaped up to be a great success for Euroheat & Power and, more importantly, for our members. Looking back, it’s clear that the pivotal factor was a change of mind-set, where our association provided the much needed thought leadership and served as a forum to bring our industry together. And of course none of this would have been possible without the talented team that made sure Euroheat & Power is such a great place to work.


Paul Voss, Euroheat & Power’s Managing Director, said “I know convention dictates that I’m supposed to say that we are ‘humbled’ by this award but I don’t think that’s quite the right word. The truth is I’m really proud! Proud of my amazing colleagues and proud to be associated with the real star of the show; district heating and cooling. A lobby group can only be as good as the concept it’s promoting and this technology gives us a great story to tell! I can’t wait to watch this sector deliver on its potential in the coming years. In the meantime, there must be a bottle of cava around here somewhere!”
