Learn about the Eco_Lógicas contest’s finalists of the 2014/2015 edition

The Institute for the Development of Renewable Energy in Latin America (IDEAL) and the Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE) have selected 10 finalists works of the 6th Eco_Lógicas edition, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy categories. The contest gathered works from nine countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay. Ideal's CEO Mauro Passos said that, year after year, Eco_Lógicas is consolidated as an incentive for the development and dissemination of studies on the energy sector throughout Latin America and the Caribbean territory.

The criteria for evaluators in selecting the works, are the method, relevance of the topic and drafting quality. The monographs will be gathered in a bilingual book (Portuguese and Spanish), which will be distributed to libraries across the Latin American and Caribbean territory. The two winners of Eco_Lógicas will be known on October 19. Authors and teachers-counselors of the winning papers (one in each category) will receive, US $ 15,000 and US $ 10,000 respectively.
