The search is on for the sunniest place in Luxembourg and the Greater Region as part of a project to measure how best to exploit solar energy in the area.

The scheme, which is led by CRP Henri Tudor and supported by energy giant Enovos, aims to explore regional variations in the performance of photovoltaïc energy yield.

This collaboration with a ground-breaking project is the first step of a new public foundation created by Enovos to explore and promote the development of renewable energy schemes.

The announcement was made at an official launch of the Enovos Foundation on Wednesday in the presence of Director General of the Fondation de Luxembourg Tonika Hirdman, Enovos Luxembourg CEO Jean Lucius, Director of the Centre Technology Resources for Environment Dr Paul Schosseler and CRP Henri Tudor CEO Dr Mark Lemmer.

Under the scheme, the firm aims to

  • showcase and develop renewable energy sources in Luxembourg and the Greater Region by sponsoring and supporting innovative projects;
  • fulfil a social responsibility by helpoing non-associated organisations such as the Fondatioun Kriibskrank Kanner and Special Olympics Luxembourg;
  • and contribute actively in supporting scientific projects in the energy sector and in particular, for renewable energy.
