The promoters of the program are looking for ideas to make a selection of a maximum of 15 projects that promote efficient energy consumption, the application of sustainable energies, the energy transition and the digitization of the energy sector.

Applications to participate in the program can be made through the website from January 23 until February 24.

In June, the three projects with the highest potential will be selected, which will receive a prize of 20,000, 10,000 and 5,000 euros, respectively.
