Here you will find information on anything to do with the energy model, energy supply, energy saving and power generation, in fact, everything you need to know, in the three languages.
Reducing overall consumption
Barcelona consumes 15,627 GWh/year and only 146 GWh of this is generated by renewable and residual energy. To reduce the overall average consumption of 9.75 MWh per citizen, the City Council wants to minimise the city's dependence on energy from fossil fuels and promote the local generation of renewable energy, connected the power grid to reduce CO2 omissions and create a new and more sustainable energy model.
... And increasing local energy generation
Currently, the city generates 4,865 GWh/year of electricity locally, which represents 75.3% of electrical energy consumed in Barcelona. Even though this seems to be a significant amount, in reality only a small net quantity is being produced. Therefore, the challenge lies in making 75% of energy consumption as clean as possible.
