Formerly known as Galp 20-20- 20, Galp 21 completed its 11th edition in 2017 and is considered the largest programme for energy efficiency research in Portugal.
The programme is based on a shared mentoring system between Galp (the client manager), the client company and the university concerned. The studies’ accomplishment of is followed up by Galp, with the objective of contributing to its materialisation into specific energy efficiency projects in its clients.
We aim that this programme will also start to respond to a new challenge - the Circular Economy. To that end, the projects to be developed will include this topic, bearing in mind the rational use of resources, besides the energy resources.
By 2020, the energy efficiency measures that we will propose to our customers / partners covered by this program will avoid, in case of implementation, on average the emission of 10% of CO2 / year in the processes evaluated.
