The Barcelona Local Energy Agency's mission is to promote Barcelona as a model city in the way it deals with energy and its effects on the environment.
Through consensus and participation, the Agency works to ensure the city achieves optimum standards in its use and management of local energy resources and promote quality, rational, sustainable energy demand.
All this is designed to help Barcelona meet its environmental and energy commitments in the local sphere, as envisaged by the Energy Plan and Agenda 21, and the international arena, arising from the Johannesburg, Kyoto, Aalborg and Rio de Janeiro summit agreements.
The Agency also sets the benchmark in energy matters for the institutions making up the consortium. It collaborates both in its own right and as a representative, on behalf of Barcelona City Council, on European and domestic projects.
