Earlier today, Barcelona played host to a training seminar organised by the Naturgy Foundation at which various experts presented the keys to designing our urban mobility of the future based on measures to reduce urban pollution and improve air quality in our cities.
In partnership with the Education Department of the Regional Government of Catalonia and with the participation of companies such as SEAT and Transportes Metropolitanos de Barcelona (TMB), the power company’s foundation is supporting teacher training on vehicular natural gas (VNG) for two training courses.
Logroño hosted the Naturgy Foundation training seminar where several experts presented the current situation of this fuel in Spain and Europe.
Speakers from the Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña, the Spanish Biogas Association, Gaz Naturel GRDF, the Valdemingómez Technology Park and the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research took part in the event.
Zaragoza hosted the Naturgy Foundation training seminar where various experts analysed the future perspectives for energy consumption.
Spokespersons from the Iberian Electricity Market Operator (OMIE), the Aragon Government, Accenture Strategy, the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM), Schneider Electric Energy and Sustainability Services, the Carlos lll Institute of Health (ISClll) and ECODES all participated in this event.
Experts from various sectors analyse the profile of the new energy consumer at “Els Juliols”, a summer course organised by the Naturgy Foundation with the Universitat de Barcelona.
During the course of a week more than a dozen experts tackled issues such as energy poverty, the new energy consumer, the importance of digitalisation and connectivity for the new energy consumer, and the system’s impact on the environment and human health.
The seminar entitled ‘Economic aspects of the new energy model in Spain’, organised by the power company’s foundation in partnership with the Regional Government of Navarre, the Association of Chartered Industrial Engineers and the Navarre Industrial Foundation, tackled the changes due to take place in energy management and how they will affect consumers and business in general.
The transformation in the electricity and gas market in Spain, the emergence of new energy business models and consumer profile trends were some of the issues debated at the event.
The GAS NATURAL FENOSA Foundation presents the publication ‘La calidad del aire en las ciudades. Un reto mundial’, a book that analyses the causes and consequences of poor air quality and suggests some specific ways to deal with the problem.
According to the World Health Organisation, only one in ten people around the world live in a city that meets the conditions for minimum air quality.
Road transport is one of the sectors with the worst greenhouse gas emissions and accounts for approximately one third of energy consumption in the European Union.
Besides Madrid and Barcelona, the study examines air quality and its impact on the public in several major cities around the world, such as Berlin, Mexico, Santiago de Chile, Bogota and the Lombardy region in Italy.
In the seminar, sector experts discussed the sustainable energy solutions that smart ports should incorporate to help improve air quality.
The seminar was complemented by an exhibition on smart ports that will be free to visitors until 3 June, including educational activities for school children.
The session will also include an appearance by the Energytruck, the Gas Natural Fenosa Foundation mobile exhibition that demonstrates what energy is and how we can consume it in a visual and interactive way.
The energy, technology, and food and beverage sector is in the lead when it comes to adapting to Industry 4.0 in Galicia, reducing production costs and improving factory productivity.
The seminar “Energy, the Environment and Industry 4.0”, organised in partnership with the regional government of Galicia, presented the Galician companies’ processes for adapting to Industry 4.0.
The day covered issues such as the presence of digitisation in all productive areas and how it affects companies’ management of energy and the environment.
The seminar “Energy efficiency in Hotels and Tourism” organised by the Gas Natural Fenosa Foundation, in collaboration with the Regional Government of Murcia analyses energy efficiency and sustainability measures in the tourism industry.
The benefits of applying efficiency measures in the hotel and tourism industry are twofold: supporting sustainable management by consuming less resources and reduced CO2 emissions, and economic savings.
Experts at the event maintain that sustainable management policies in the tourism industry contribute to the commitment to society as well as improving customers’ comfort and economic profit for companies.
