EdP always surprises those who visit them. Thanks to its innovations in games and information about its own projects, the energy company has entered the parallel universe of the metaverse, where it has built its first green hydrogen plant. The space of the metaverse is located within virtual reality and is one of this year’s biggest attractions in video game form. Another novel, and without a doubt, the one that will attract the most attention, is the change of the logo. Previously, EdP was associated with a recognizable red symbol. This year, however, they chose a circular logo that symbolizes the nature and circularity of energy, in blue, gray and green colors that stand out against a white background.

Outside, the vertical garden of 3,500 plants continues to attract attention for the second year in a row.
