DescriptionThe Energy Agency of Granada was created in 2001 under the SAVE European initiative by the Provincial Council of Granada. Once finished the project, the Agency has being earning more and more weight on the provincial administration policies, and now is the main ‘instrument’ that the provincial council has to undertake all his sustainable energy policies on the region as the current ‘Environment Protection Plan 20-11’ which aims to achieve different objectives on 3 main subjects:
- Energy Save 20% to promote rational and efficient use of energy on different energy saving projects (as it can be the current one we are undertaking on public efficient lighting).
- Renewable Energies 20% to promote the use of renewable energies on the province.
- Awareness raising and behaviour changing on the province for a better use of energy on a local reality.
The Energy Agency has worked on different projects to achieve a better energy use on the region, as Energy Audits in over 160 municipalities until now (but more are being carried now), educational events, technical assessment, mobility studies, renewable energies facilities, etc.
The Provincial Council of Granada entrusted in 2009 the management of the CoM to the Energy Agency of Granada.
All these years we worked in all kinds of fields related to sustainable energy, and among those, energy poverty in our provinces, which has been covering more and more importance in our región after the economic crisis.
