The level represented by the participants of the Grand Final of the 2017 edition of the PowerUp! was really high. The scope of presented ideas was very broad and, most importantly, each project could potentially contribute to improving our environment. As RAFAKO, we are currently seeking new solutions for energy distribution and ideas in implementing circular economy model. I am sure that my company will establish cooperation with PowerUp! participants who fit our portfolio.
