Empower millions of people with the power to fulfil their basic energy needs, also through new local partners.
Things we take for granted in the first world like electric appliances, lights and heating are unreachable for many inhabitants of third world countries, be it for low incomes, scarce resources and harsh locations, high energy prices or low housing energy efficiency.
Possible solutions we are looking at could include new innovative and sustainable technologies not necessarily based on renewables, the revival of ancient low-cost techniques and knowledge as well as the vast array of services that increase the energetic resilience of a whole community.
In order to generate value in its business areas, Enel needs to find partners on the territory that would help the company gain innovative ideas to be transformed in actions to create value.
This challenge takes place in a non-collaborative environment, meaning that the interaction regarding the submission is private, between ENEL and the proponent.
What happens next?

Dateline for submission: December 31, 2019
