The Incentive Programme for Generating Solar Energy
Barcelona City Council, through the Barcelona Energy Agency (AEB) and the i.lab programme, with the support of the BIT Habitat Foundation, have launched the challenge entitled "Energy-generating floors: how can we incorporate local renewable energy generation into the city's floor surfaces and pavements?" with the aim of finding potential solutions for the local generation of renewable energy in floors and studying the feasibility of implementing them in Barcelona’s streets, squares and access roads.
With this goal in mind, we are looking for solutions to pilot test the generation of renewable energy in the city’s floor surfaces and pavements and assess the results over a six-month period.
Sunlight is the Earth's main source of energy and Barcelona enjoys many hours of sunshine throughout the year. We have enormous energy potential in Barcelona if we harness solar energy.
More specifically, we have a surface area of almost 8 million m2 for capturing sunlight,, through which we can generate around 1,191 GWh/year of solar photovoltaic energy and 5,945 GWh/year of solar thermal energy, according to data from the Energy Resources Map.
This programme will be working on four areas of action during the 2017-2019 period and aiming to increase the power installed to date by 20 %.
