Energy volunteering

The Naturgy volunteers and Reynés take stock of the year with 4,000 vulnerable families assisted and over 6,600 working hours dedicated to social action across the world

The chairman of Naturgy, Francisco Reynés, met with 300 of the company's volunteers online to recognise the involvement and dedication of the group of employees across the world during the Covid-19 public health crisis.

In the last year, close to 1,100 company volunteers dedicated 6,600 working hours across seven countries to their tasks with people in a situation of energy vulnerability and conferences on the environmental recovery of natural spaces, among other actions.

Education and dissemination

Over 2,400 students in vocational training will benefit from the Naturgy Foundation’s employability promotion programme on sustainable construction and rehabilitation, renewable gas, vehicular gas and energy vulnerability

The courses will be carried out in collaboration with entities recognised in each sector.

The first training sessions on sustainable construction and rehabilitation will be given by professionals from the Official Association of Architects of Catalonia (COAC).

Energy and environment

The production of energy from renewables reached 40% of the total and contributed to reducing power generation emissions by almost a quarter.

The installed capacity in wind power and photovoltaics grew by 20% in 2019.

The new report on the Spanish power sector created by the Naturgy Foundation also includes the increase of production with combined cycles in the last year, which acted as a back-up energy to renewables, as well as the increase in the tariff deficit.

Energy and environment

The introduction of renewable gas in Spain would reduce the greenhouse gas emissions forecast for 2030 by over 10%

The maximum renewable gas production potential in Spain could be the equivalent of 65% of the current total natural gas demand if it is purposefully developed.

European countries such as Germany, the United Kingdom and Sweden are very advanced in the development of this new energy vector, which Spain seeks to boost with the future Climate Change Act.
