The fourth edition is now accepting entries

Following the success of previous editions, the Naturgy Foundation is launching the 4th edition of the Best Social Energy Initiative Awards.

We want to raise the profile of outstanding individuals, entities and institutions in social sectors directly or indirectly tied to energy, and to help fund initiatives in this field to improve quality of life for the most vulnerable.

We are looking for energy-related projects developed in Spain that have a clear social purpose and that help those who most need it to improve their living conditions: educational, energy vulnerability, entrepreneurship, social inclusion, health and environmental projects, and those relating to the circular economy, etc.

The initiatives entered for the award must be in progress or already finished. The full amount of the prize must also be spent on social projects that promote better conditions for the most vulnerable groups in terms of energy-related issues.

The prize is part of the Naturgy Foundation’s social action line, in its commitment to develop actions aimed at alleviating energy vulnerability. So go for it! We’re sure your project meets all the criteria.

  • What is the prize?

    First prize will consist of 60,000 euros, and there will also be a runners-up prize of 30,000 euros. The amounts will go towards the winners’ social initiatives.

  • Who can take part?

    Any individual or legal entity that works towards creating improvements in the social conditions of the most disadvantaged groups with direct or indirect actions in the field of energy.

  • When is the deadline for applying?

    Entries can be submitted until 28 February 2023, and the prize will be awarded during the second quarter of the year.
