EDP Renovables (EDPR) launched "Tu Energía" [Your Energy], an educational programme that shows children the importance of renewables in our daily life and the difference between fossil and renewable energy sources.

This project was run in schools and sought to foster a change in environmental behaviour using interactive materials and simple and clear language to explain energy-related concepts.

Six cartoon characters have been created to educate and engage the children taking part in this programme and they represent the different aspects of energy: solar, hydraulic, wind power, geothermal, biomass and energy efficiency.

“The Tu Energía programme is an example of EDP Renovables’s commitment to society and the new generations. The main objective of the programme is to make young people more aware and be committed to protecting the environment,” said the EDPR Europe COOO, João Paulo Costeira.

Pilot project in Albacete, Spain

In 2014, EDPR will run this project in the Albacete region where it has had wind farms since 2004.

The project will be implemented in over 30 local schools from 11 February to April.

A EDP Group programme

This is an EDP Group programme that was kicked off in Portugal as “Una TuaEnergia”. EDP Spain got the programme underway in Spain and EDPR will now take it to different regions where its wind farms are present.
