4 October / This year, the City of Tartu was presented with two Energy Action of the Year awards.

The awards were presented to Tartu for the adoption of gas buses and the entry into operation of Tartu Smart Bike Share.

Present at the awards gala, held at the Energy Fair in Rakvere, was Deputy Mayor Raimond Tamm, according to whom the City of Tartu has vigorously contributed to promoting environmentally friendly types of movement. ‘Of course we are pleased when our efforts are noticed and recognised. The main goal of Tartu Smart Bike Share and the gas buses is to offer an efficient alternative to using a car, thereby reducing air pollution and the noise level in the city environment as well as the emission of carbon dioxide responsible for global warming,' Tamm.

This year, three of the 14 Energy Action of the Year awards came to Tartu. In addition to the awards presented to the City of Tartu, Estiko-Plastar AS was also recognised as an enterprise with an exemplary green method of thinking, whose production complex includes a solar power station with a total capacity of 862 kW.
