Energy in Andalusia
Energy planning reflects the strategy lines which mark the path to achieve the energy supply of the region in terms of safety, quality and environmental respect.
Andalusia counts on the Andalusian Sustainable Energy Plan - Plan Andaluz de Sostenibilidad Energética 2007-2013 (PASENER). The plan seeks to approach a new energy model that responds to energy supply needs in the context of a sustainable development for our region. It includes aspects that will be key in this process: mainstreaming of energy policy, demand management and distribution of energy, priority use of renewable sources and innovation. The plan penetrates into the path of the Andalusian Energy Plan - Plan Energético de Andalucía 2003-2006 (PLEAN) and other previous works on energy planning.
The Andalusian energy planning and the action lines that result from it, depend, in turn, on the policies in the energy field that are developed at European and national level, establishing its reference framework.
On the other hand, Law 2/2007 for the Promotion of Renewable Energies and Energy Saving and Efficiency in Andalusia and its regulatory development, contributes to fulfilling, within its legislative framework, the objectives of the PASENER. This Law is defined as an instrument to promote the use of renewable energy, energy saving and efficiency, from its production to its consumption, as well as the rational use of energy resources in the territory of the Autonomous Community of Andalusia, under the principle of collective solidarity in energy use.
