Social innovation projects
- Promote socially innovative solutions and models in the energy sector via a social entrepreneur joint-skills platform, which provides financial support through skills sponsorship, equipment donation or logistical assistance.
Academic studies and research
- Develop knowledge and raise awareness of energy efficiency by creating a shared knowledge base through studies, conferences and workshops.
- Encourage innovation and the development of new solutions via research programs in the energy efficiency field.
