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.

The City Council offers various information resources to popularise a new culture of energy based on increasing knowledge about saving energy, using energy efficiently and sensibly, as well as generating energy from renewable sources.

The objective is to understand how we consume energy, to know what options we are being offered by the energy market, to know whether we are paying to use a higher than necessary energy rate and, ultimately, to know how to reduce the cost of our energy bills.

Until the public energy supplier, Barcelona Energia, is in operation, we recommend you take part in La Fàbrica del Sol’s information workshops or visit an Energy Advice Point and find out about the power supply, rate and supplier that best suits you.
