The Nordic Energy Municipality 2011 project highlights sustainable energy, green growth and energy-related climate efforts in the Nordic countries. The initiative particularly recognises municipalities having introduced special efforts to undertake innovative energy projects. All Nordic municipalities have been invited to take part in the competition.

During the period October 2010 to February 2011, 44 Nordic municipalities forwarded an application to the Nordic Energy Municipality 2011 competition, each describing one cutting-edge energy project launched in their municipality.

Of these 44 applicants, 14 municipalities representing nearly all Nordic countries and self-governing areas were nominated for the award in March 2011.

The second evaluation process took place during the summer of 2011, where the Nordic Jury appointed the Nordic Energy Municipality 2011.
