More specifically, the municipality of Barcelona, with the collaboration of the social movement ‘Barcelona in Comú’, initiated in 2018 Barcelona Energia (BE), a public renewable energy company. Barcelona Energia aims at contributing to the transition to sustainable energy by promoting self-sufficiency and favouring a locally produced 100% renewable energy supply.
