Education and dissemination

The mayor of Valdemoro takes part in an innovative virtual trip into space created by the Naturgy Foundation to raise awareness of the planet’s environmental challenges, the energy transition and the circular economy.

The new travelling awareness-raising project, Energy Challenge, was presented last week under the framework of the COP 25, and starts its tour around Spain in Valdemoro.

The Energy Challenge will travel some 4,800 kilometres, visiting around forty Spanish municipalities during next year, where it hopes to attract 100,000 visitors.

Energy and environment

Andris Piebalgs: “Participants in the energy markets must have suitable incentives to operate efficiently in the short term and invest appropriately in the medium and long term.”

Today in Madrid, the Energy commissioner stated that it is necessary “to promote flexibility in the wholesale market and provide clear pricing signals to encourage continuous penetration of renewable energy and to guarantee investments.”

The researcher at the Centre for Monetary and Financial Studies, Jorge Padilla, spoke about incorporating renewable energy into the wholesale electricity market and supported the need to design suitable capacity remuneration mechanisms.
