The Barcelona Energy Agency (AEB) Consortium comprises the authorities that are directly involved in managing energy and the environment in their area of influence: Barcelona City Council, Barcelona Metropolitan Area, the Catalan Energy Institute, the Autonomous University of Barcelona and the Polytechnic University of Catalonia.

 What do we do at the AEB?

The mission of Barcelona’s Energy Agency is to help boost the city’s reputation as a benchmark city in dealing with energy issues and their environmental consequences. On this basis, we are working to ensure that the city optimises the use and management of local energy resources and the promotion of high-quality, rational and sustainable energy demands.

Therefore, the Agency’s work focuses on improving environmental quality and the sustainable development of the city, based on promoting energy saving, energy efficiency, and knowledge about and use of renewable energies, and optimising the quality of services linked to this sector.
