Energy Day

We believe that sharing what we know and do is the best way to ensure that our energy turns into action. Specially in times of emergency it is essencial to find extra energy, and act now, in order to help the ones in need. To celebrate this Energy Day we highlight a set of initiatives centered around what connects us to the world, and to the people.

This is how we dare to share our energy.

Study with Energy

In the Iberian project Study with Energy, jointly promoted by Fundación EDP (EDP Spain) and the EDP Volunteering Program, EDP volunteers are willing to help students, identified by the Ministry of Education in Portugal and Asturias, taking on the role of mentors and supporting school tasks. At the same time, through partnerships, it offers access to home tutorials with Teachers4Covid volunteer teachers, and Student Keep brings computers to schools: more than 500 computers in Portugal and Spain.

Energy Classes

EDP employees take energy to schools, through classes on its basic concepts. As a form of support for these volunteers, the classes have as their starting point an Energy Kit, adapted for virtual classes. A good tool for parents to teach their children about the importance of responsible consumption of energy, and how to take care of our planet - educating the new generation with the help of everyone!
