Category Exploration: 6. 'Energy Technologies' - Lighting the Way

The Baltic Sustainability Awards 2023 introduces an electrifying journey into 'Energy Technologies.' Hosted by Virši, this chapter seeks to illuminate the path to a sustainable future by showcasing pioneering energy initiatives that spark innovation and change.

"Not only the Baltic region, but the entire European Union as a whole has set ambitious climate and energy goals, and it is the energy sector that is one of the most important to achieve these goals. In the Baltic States, we can create innovations that will be useful for improving the sustainability of our energy sector, and we can also transfer these ideas to other countries. Likewise, without technological development, energy efficiency is very important, because every kWh of energy that is not consumed is the most climate friendly. As an energy company, Virši has always moved towards offering alternatives to customers, whether it is CNG for freight transport, electric charging for cars, or a vegan choice for a person, or dischargeable windshield liquid we see that it is new and bold solutions that can show positive experiences can lead to change. It is also important that companies and ideas meet each other at such an event, and it is precisely on the Baltic scale that we can create best synergy." Jānis Bethers, Head of Energy Business at Virši
