Presentation during Fundación Repsol's Fourth Energy with Consciousness Championship.

The team of experts at Repsol and  Fundación Repsol have analysed the information the 21 schools have submitted. These schools handed in their energy audits after taking part in the Energy with Conscience programme. The schools selected to take part in the grand finale on 27 June, at the Repsol Campus in Madrid are:

  • IES Antonio Calvin (Almagro, Ciudad Real)
  • IES Miguel de Cervantes (Murcia)
  • IES Mónico Sánchez (Piedrabuena, Ciudad Real)
  • IES Plurilingüe Fontexería (Muros, A Coruña)
  • Institut Pont del Diable (Tarragona)

The Evaluation Committee assessed creativity, innovation, the feasibility of the proposed improvements, the quality of the presentation, teamwork, and environmental outreach and awareness.

In the grand finale of the Energy with Conscience Championship, pupils from each school will present their audit, reporting and defending their proposals to become more energy efficient in front a jury. Viewers are able to follow the event live on the Fundación Repsol's Facebook page or YouTube channel , and the audience will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite school from the comfort of their own homes. The results of the online voting will be combined with the decision of the panel, made up of energy and education experts. 

The winning centre will win a cash prize of €7000, and the runner-up will receive €3000. The five finalists will compete to fill the shoes of the schools Colegio Obradoiro (A Coruña) and the Colegio Sagrado Corazón Padres Capuchinos (Madrid), the two winners of the past competition.

The grand finale of the Fifth Energy with Conscience Championship will be the last piece of the fifth edition puzzle in this education programme launched by the Fundación Repsol, where 36 schools from the Spanish regions of A Coruña, Bizkaia, Cantabria, Ciudad Real, Madrid, Murcia, and Tarragona took part. In addition to partaking in the championship, these schools have been visited by 73 Repsol volunteers, who are current or retired employees of the energy company, who have been helping the students understand the concept of energy efficiency and the importance of the energy transition through workshops and experiments.
