Energy, a priority area for the City Council

Energy has moved on from being a sectoral work area to a priority area in the city.

Barcelona City Council is launching a new, more sustainable energy model that does not depend on the consumption of fossil fuels, which emit high levels of pollutants.

A new mode that reduces energy consumption, increases energy efficiency, promotes the production of clean energies in Barcelona and makes them available to city residents.

This change of energy model is a wide-ranging strategy that involves reclaiming energy sovereignty by promoting public and citizen energy production. A change to leave energy poverty behind us - with a service that guarantees a basic supply of energy - and to ensure cleaner air, free of particle pollution and which prevents greenhouse gas emissions.

City residents are the focus of municipal policies in Barcelona. That is why we wish to put them at the centre of this wide-ranging transformation, by increasing their energy culture and capacity to take an active part in this sustainable future.
