This government measure was approved by the City Council in July 2016 with a budget of 130 million euros. Its approval shows that the city is working to create its own energy model based on the supply of 100% renewable energy, with zero emissions accessible to everyone in a democratic way.
It is a commitment to energy sovereignty, to reduce energy consumption through energy efficiency, self-consumption and responsible use of energy, to maximum local energy generation using own resources, whether renewable (such as the sun) or residual, and to ensure a basic supply for all citizens. Likewise, the problems posed by current energy regulations must be resolved and citizen collaboration must be made a strategic issue.
