Winner of the first prize was the metallurgical company Aluminium Norf GmbH for optimising energy consumption in the aluminium annealing process. Second prize was awarded to the food processing company Moll Marzipan GmbH for adapting its energy-intensive production facilities to requirements, while third prize went to BSH Bosch und Siemens Hausgeräte GmbH for a resource efficiency programme implemented throughout the home appliances group. The awards were handed out at the dena Energy Efficiency Congress in Berlin, which was opened today by German Minister of Economic Affairs Sigmar Gabriel, who is also the patron of the competition.
