large scale goals are structured around two pillars: energy efficiency
and renewable energy sources (wind power, biomass, solar thermal and
photovoltaic energy, mini-hydroelectric plants and biofuels) all acting
in parallel to achieve, simultaneously, an improvement in energy intensity
and the gradual implementation of technologies for the exploitation
of non-polluting resources.
Thus, IDAE carries out its strategic actions in the sectors of
industry, transport, agriculture, domestic and services through
two main lines: promotion and project investment.
- Support in the development of regulations and in the implementation
of the State policy in the fields of energy saving, conservation
and diversification of renewable energy sources. IDAE is responsible
for the development, updating promotion and monitoring of the
Spanish Strategy on Energy Efficiency and of the Spanish Plan
for the Promotion of Renewable Energy Sources.
- Dissemination of information and running of communication
activities to raise awareness among the main energy consuming
sectors and citizens.
- Technological development projects
- Innovative and Demonstrative projects
- Market stimulation projects
