Portuguese researcher finalist of the European Sustainable Energy Awards

Description
Portuguese researcher Carla Silva Gonçalves is one of three finalists in the "Young Energy Trailblazer" category of the European Sustainable Energy Awards, promoted by the European Commission. The researcher at the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC) developed mathematical models that allow reducing errors in predicting the generation of renewable-based electricity, contributing to increase the renewable energy sources in the power grid. The voting process is already open, until September 18 - here.
