Yazd Mayor Mehdi Jamalinejad told Iran Daily that 170 countries with close to 11,000 projects attend in Global Energy Award annually.

The advantages in preserving and optimum use of energy in lights of its architecture — which is in tandem with the environment —, using wind catcher technology and aqueduct system and applying indigenous construction materials, were the reasons of winning this award.

Global Energy Award is the highest environmental award which is held with support and cooperation of the United Nations.

Given the efforts of urban officials and municipality officials of Yazd for reviving and preserving the aqueducts, cisterns and wind catchers, he said, it is planned not to forget the indigenous knowledge and update it for development of the city.
