The Watt d’Or award from Switzerland recognizes the best energy projects and innovations that provide a true benefit for society. Since 2007, the Swiss Federal Office of Energy has been honoring outstanding accomplishments and projects by bestowing them with the Watt d’Or (www.wattdor.ch). During the last 8 years, nearly 50 Swiss projects have been recognized with the award, and 25 of these pioneering works will be showcased, for the first time, in a traveling exhibition premiering in Boston and continuing through the US, Switzerland and additional countries.

The purpose of the exhibition is to showcase the individual Watt D’Or award-winning projects, as a means by which to create a dialogue and establish collaborations with key players in academia, and the public and private sector. The hope is that the projects will spark future interactions and forge new bonds.
