Renewable energies and resources forum

Renewable energies and resources

Navarre is a European leader in best practices in both the production of renewable energy, historically betting on technology and industry for the development thereof, as well as in the conservation and exploitation of natural resources and environmental management. In fact, it has made the fight against climate change one of its major commitments.

The Foral Region reached the 2020 European targets several years in advance and even generates more electrical energy than it internally consumes. Renewable energy production in Navarre accounts for more than 80% of all electricity consumption.

Whats more, it became the third economic area in the 2008-2013 period in volume of patents by reaching 6.4% of the total with support from the Spanish National Centre for Renewable Energy (CENER).

The aim is to reduce the consumption of fossil energy (fuels) and raw materials by increasing the production of renewable energy, enhancing energy efficiency and strengthening emerging sectors based on proper natural resource and waste management. You can find more information on the importance of this sector in the 2020 Navarre Industrial Plan.
