The Refurbishment and European and Innovative Area is in charge of the Promotion of Sustainability actions related with saving energy focusing on the general goal of improving the quality of life in the districts through different interventions with the inhabitants in the public space and in the buildings. We have obtained important energy savings in buildings by implementing active measures like renovations and also through the training of tenants including new technologies (ICT). We also promoted the installation of renewable energies in existing buildings.
