Energy is a key sector for economic activity and the wellbeing of society. Barcelona and Catalonia, due to their industrial and entrepreneurial culture, concentrate a high degree of knowledge of the energy sector and develop a large number of R&D lines and projects in fields such as renewable energy, air conditioning, natural cooling technologies and instruments and control systems for electricity. 

The Barcelona Energy Improvement Plan (PMEB), promoted by Barcelona City Council, and the 2006-2015 energy plan promoted by the Catalan Government are two instruments that make a decided commitment to positioning Barcelona and Catalonia as European centres in the energy sector of the 21st century.
