The Competition

In September, the Naturgy Foundation launched the second edition of the Efigy Technology Competition for the 2019-2020 school year. The initiative is designed for 14-16-year-old secondary school students across Spain and aims to promote the values of energy efficiency and technological professions from a young age.

It is free to take part in the competition, which asks students to propose a solution that will contribute to improving the planet through energy efficiency. This educational activity aims to motivate and raise awareness and interest in energy, strengthen the research ability of young people and inspire curiosity and creativity, while developing teamwork and communication skills.

At this edition, due to the COVID-19 health emergency, the awards ceremony will be streamed online on Thursday 21 May at 5:30 pm. Participate online!
