The big winner this year was the Training and Education Center of Pina Manique.
The professional school in Lisbon distinguished itself among 65 applications from all over the country with the multidisciplinary project “Pina Manique Circular”, a series of initiatives that allowed a 35% reduction in energy consumption in the school context.
Students and teachers from Pina Manique received an installation of Galp Solar photovoltaic panels worth €20 as a prize.
ADENE, the Portuguese Environment Agency, the General Directorate of Education and the General Directorate of Energy and Geology were the institutional partners of the 2023 edition.
