We are transforming Barcelona's energy model

At the Barcelona City Council, we are working towards the goal of making access to high-quality, sustainable and cost-effective energy a right, both for local public institutions and for citizens.

Special emphasis is given to ensuring a basic energy supply is provided to people with difficulties or in vulnerable situations. To ensure an improvement in the energy supply to the city, the City Council wants to play a more active role in the energy market, as well as promoting locally generated and renewable sources of energy.

Therefore, the structures needed to carry out operations for buying and selling energy are being set up. It consists of a new state owned energy service provider, which allows changes to be made to the current energy model. The current model, based on large oligopolistic structures and fossil fuels, will be developed towards a more democratic and sustainable model.
