The goal of the Energy Transition and the City Congress (CTEC) is to highlight the role of cities in driving the transition to energy sovereignty and generating debate around the city-energy pairing between all stakeholders involved: citizens and civil society, political and technical representatives, public authorities, national and international bodies, academia, the business sector and others.

The first edition of the CTEC was held in Barcelona on 6 and 7 March 2019. It was jointly organised by Barcelona City Council and the cities of Cádiz, Madrid, Pamplona, Valencia and Zaragoza, and in collaboration with national and international organisations.

The congress was attended by over 400 people from 30 towns and cities, and featured 75 speakers who covered different topics relating to the energy transition in the city.
