Energy projects should aim to find practical solutions to the world’s energy problems and should seek technology that can be used for maintaining global sustainability.

The field of energy and resources has to do with the Earth’s energy sources, how we use them for the benefit of human kind and how we can use them more efficiently. Sources such as water, minerals, wood, coal, wind, sun etc. can produce energy, but we must strive to increase their utility without impacting the environment. Vilipo Energy is looking for new ideas which seek win–win solutions to problems related to the efficient and responsible use of non-renewable natural resources in energy and goods’ production.

Your project could make the move from non-renewable to renewable (sustainable) sources. In other words, we seek projects that use the Earth’s resources in a way that keeps our environment healthy and does not contribute to global warming.
