Engaging with startups and students at ENLIT Paris 2023

Galp was one of the corporate partners of EIT InnoEnergy Career Impact Challenges.

Between November 28th-30th, the ENLIT conference took place at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles. 

Alexandre Chaves, Project Manager from the Renewables & Commercial Innovation Center, and Joana Larsen, Open Innovation Lead, represented Galp at the event. Besides meeting with startups and local partners at ENLIT, they participated on the EIT InnoEnergy Career Impact Challenges, along with ABB, Engie, Siemens Energy, Schneider Electric, and Northvolt. 

Galp’s challenge explored the integration of electric heat pumps in Iberia to foster heat generation through sustainable decarbonisation and repurposing within buildings in the tertiary sector. The students solving the challenge used a eight-stage process to deliver a campaign response from problem diagnostics to solution. On the final event day, the winning team was selected by judges Alexandre, Joana and representatives from InnoEnergy and Hanover.
