Energy sources and the debate on their future are important key points in a time of change and an adverse economic situation.

Foment del Treball has a special interest in following this debate, although the competence levels in Catalonia are limited in the area of energy. It is strategic that a country has a say in the definition of a medium-term legislative framework and in deciding which kinds of energies are being promoted as competitive.

Lines of action

  • Monitoring and participating in the energy planning process on the different regulatory and economic competence levels. Paying special attention to the revision of the energy planning in Catalonia.

  • Identifying and monitoring the principal challenges of the business operators and energy users, including the needs of energy infrastructures.

  • Promoting state-of-the-art energy innovation, with the objective of identifying new business opportunities and fostering their incorporation into the Catalan business fabric.
