Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, drove a short track around central Brussels, starting at the Berlaymont building while trying out ‘OpenCarData’. Open Car Data is a Smartphone application which helps driving energy-efficiently and save money and fuel and is not yet available on the market. Günther Oettinger handed out a prize to the winner of the "European Eco-Driving Contest", which took place on 26 June 2013. EUSEW participants will have competed against each other to become the most energy-and cost-efficient drivers using the Smartphone application which monitors real-time fuel consumption in relation to the user’s driving style and translates this into the equivalent of Euros ‘saved’ or ‘lost’.

Only the original language version is authentic and it prevails in the event of its differing from the translated versions.
