Education and dissemination

Naturgy Foundation rewards energy innovation projects from four schools in Aragón, Galicia, La Rioja and Madrid.

Almost 570 students from around Spain have taken part in the 3rd Efigy Technology Competition which aims to reinforce the values of energy efficiency, foster a vocation for technology among young people, and promote research capacity and teamwork.

The winning projects propose we use beer cereal waste, develop a solar car prototype, and sustainable energy and air quality improvement measures for schools in a setting dominated by the pandemic.

Energy and environment

Boosting futures markets and reducing the role of the spot market would make electricity prices more stable and guarantee the investment needed in renewable energy to meet 2030 targets.

A PwC report published by the Naturgy Foundation analyses the best options for reforming wholesale electricity markets to address the mass integration of renewable energy while guaranteeing that consumers receive a quality service.

The document authors also support giving greater power to the system’s adjustment services, which would make it more flexible and allow for renewable technology, storage and energy demand management.

Education and dissemination

The third Efigy Competition now has ten semi-finalist projects that will reach the final on 12 May.

The projects were developed by students at secondary schools in seven autonomous communities and focus on energy efficiency, renewable energy and sustainable mobility, each one making innovative proposals.

The public will be able to vote for their favourite semi-finalist project on the Naturgy Foundation website until 9 May and the projects will also be assessed by an expert panel.

Social action

Over 1,700 vulnerable families improve the efficiency of their homes with the Naturgy Foundation Energy Rehabilitation Solidarity Fund

This initiative forms part of the social programmes under the Naturgy Energy Vulnerability Plan and was implemented with the help of around twenty social organisations who collaborated with the foundation to perform actions in homes in Andalusia, Aragon, Castile-La Mancha, Castile and León, Catalonia, Galicia, La Rioja, the Community of Madrid, Murcia, Navarre and the Valencian Community.

Property rehabilitation is one of the priority action lines of Spanish and European policies designed to combat energy poverty.

Climate ambitions, an agreement on emissions accounting and participation by the United States will be the key issues addressed at the forthcoming COP26 in Glasgow.

The Naturgy Foundation and the Spanish chapter of the Club of Rome are holding a series of webinars to reflect on and debate current issues related to energy and sustainability, with a session on the forthcoming Climate Summit that will be held in November.

Valvanera Ulargui, director general of the Spanish Office for Climate Change, and Pedro Linares, professor at the Higher Technical School of Engineering ICAI-University of Comillas, were the first guests in this series of conversations between experts.
