The  Nº1 de Lisboa and Leão de Arroios’ elementary schools will be part of a project that aims to promote energy saving among the youngest. The initiative is called “ESCOLA + Eficiente – Energetic Efficiency from the school to the community”, promoted by the Lisboa E-Nova, financed by ERSE under PPEC 2017-2018, and also counts with the support of the municipalities of Lisbon, Amadora and Sintra.

21 schools, seven per municipality, will participate in this project during the 2017/2018 school year. Throughout the year, educational institutions will receive classes, presentations and challenges aimed at fostering children’s energy efficiency and energy saving habits – not only at school but also at home. It is also intended to involve the community in this issue, promoting savings in small service buildings.
