During this activity, InnoEnergy and Iberdrola had challenged the participants to develop solutions in three areas: globally affordable energy models; new digital models which rethink the relationship between utilities and their customers; and developing a social economy which makes energy more accessible. The initiative was aimed at InnoEnergy Master Students, PhD Candidates and Graduates from 32 countries.
The winners of the 2016 Iberdrola Energy Challenge have been the members of the “Save to Donate” project, who proposed an initiative in which the energy saving made by Iberdrola´s customers is then reversed back in electricity access for disadvantaged regions. In this way, collaboration between Iberdrola and end users is encouraged in order to promote a better access to energy. The second award was for “DSO controlled PV-converters” project. This initiative consisted of a system of converters that facilitate better integration into the grid of solar panels for homes. The third place was for two projects: “Sharing Economy Concept in Electricity Grid” and “Eco – Sharing”.
