Strawberry Energy were invited to the seat of the European Union in Brussels to attend the European Commission’s prestigious award ceremony (12/4/11). Not only did they hold their own alongside far more established businesses and brands – they walked away with the trophy.
Their win came in the ‘Consuming’ category for their Strawberry Tree public solar powered phone charger, imagined, designed and delivered by Strawberry Energy’s charismatic CEO . The device, deployed outside EU offices in Brussels during the event, was rewarded as the best within ‘projects, activities or services designed to help reduce energy consumption’.
accepted the award from Oxford University’s Brenda Boardman. The ceremony was attended by the European Commissioners, the Serbian Ambassador to the EU, as well as nine very proud Belgrade University students.
