2017-03-15 Spain: Renewable Energy (Biomass, Solar, Wind and Geothermal Energy) - Energy Efficiency


Renewable Energy (Biomass, Solar, Wind and Geothermal Energy) - Energy Efficiency

Partnership request description:: 
We are a non-profit association located in Galicia (Spain) made up of vocational teachers, engineers, technicians and companies involved in Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy issues (more than 150 members).
Besides energy efficiency, the areas of work of our association are biomass, solar thermal, solar photovoltaic, wind energy and geothermal energy.
Within the association there are working groups on specific topics of renewable energies in which a large number of partners are involved. These working groups disseminate knowledge through the publication of documents or project implementation.
We believe in energy efficiency as a work option, but also as a real option to enhance competitiveness and profitability of companies and in general, to improve the sustainable development of our region.
We are aware of the importance of primary sector in our region and much of our work is focused in agriculture, raising livestock and forestry. In particular:
- Designing, developing and installing energy systems on dairy cattle farms to improve energy resources use and reduce operation costs.
- Providing solutions for the enhancement of forest residues exploitation (biomass) as an energy source, adding value to the management of our natural resources and favouring the control of forest fires.
- Designing 100% renewable energy supply systems for small rural isolated villages based on biomass and solar energy sources.
Also, we provide solutions to businesses and households to improve the energy efficiency of new buildings and the renovation of the old ones without losing comfort or quality of life.
One of the most important aims for our association is share knowledge and we perform courses, workshops and information sessions in fields like:
- Energy saving /energy efficiency
- Renewable energy
- Environment, sustainability and climate change awareness
- Occupational risk prevention
We are able to use different dissemination channels at local, regional and national level. Among our association members and contacts are:
- National public entities
- Four Provincial Deputations (all Galician county councils)
- 315 Councils (all Galician municipal councils)
- Employers organizations
- Educational institutions
Through them, information, promotion and awareness-raising activities can reach a broad project’s target groups: 
- Representatives of local and regional public authorities
- SME managers and owners
- Teachers and trainings
- Students
- Any people interested in the project
Our full commitment to environment, sustainable development and climate change issues is the key which drives our efforts and activities always performing according our values and principles based on honesty, integrity, and professionalism.
