GREEN ECONOMY AND SUSTAINABILITY
Barcelona wants to contribute towards the fight against climate change by improving energy efficiency as well as reducing its dependency on fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions. The city therefore promotes renewable energies and improvements in urban air quality, by taking action on noise, mobility, lighting and air quality.
In 2011, Barcelona approved the Barcelona Energy, Climate Change and Air Quality Plan for 2011-2020 (PECQ).
Mobility is one of the sectors involved in the energy plan that has an impact on environment. Electric mobility can help reduce CO2 emissions, diminish energy dependence and improve its efficiency. Its expansion contributes to the development of a more sustainable economy based on research and innovation.
