The power company’s foundation will offer training on consultancy in vulnerable environments so students can work in energy poverty offices at councils, social entities and companies.
The two entities collaborate to jointly develop programmes to fight against energy vulnerability.
Rehabilitations have been conducted in around 950 homes and more than 4,700 informational workshops have been held, in addition to the advice on energy-related issues provided by volunteers from both organisations.

This prize grants €60,000 to the winning entity and €30,000 to second place, which must be used to promote their social projects.
