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 14,995 GWh/year and only 140 GWh of this is generated by renewable or residual energy. To reduce this overall consumption of 9.25 MWh per inhabitant, the City Council wants to minimise the city's energy dependence on fossil fuels and promote local generation of renewable energy connected to the grid, in order to reduce CO2 emissions and create a new and more sustainable energy model.
... And increasing local energy generation
Currently, the city generates 6,520 GWh of electricity per year locally, which represents 26% of electrical energy consumed in Barcelona. But as only 1% of this energy is renewable the challenge is twofold: to generate more energy locally that is clean energy.
