Excerpt from themayor.eu/

Last week, Francina Armengol, the President of the Balearic Islands government, presented to the Spanish authorities the regional plan for energy transition. The plan is financed with 233 million euros from the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Program and among its objectives is the jump from 6% of renewable energy production to 30% in 2026, as well as the creation of 7,000 job positions in the sector.

The energy transition plan of the region is supported by six performance programmes. In the words, of President Armengol, it represents “a fundamental qualitative and quantitative leap to achieve a just ecological transition”, which emphasizes issues such as “the fight against energy poverty” and makes a “firm commitment to the implementation of renewable energies, for shared self-consumption projects, for sustainable mobility or in the management of the water cycle”.

The Plan in more detail

The first programme is dedicated to the creation of five offices to stimulate the energy transition (6.5 million euros). These offices, which must cover the entire territory of the islands, have the function of accompanying and guiding citizens, companies and administrations in the absorption of aid, in addition to raising awareness among citizens and ensuring that the energy transition is inclusive and therefore reaches all layers of society.

On the other hand, the second program provides for investment in innovative projects that can diversify the production model (33.8 million euros), financing those projects that create stable and quality jobs and stimulating innovative talent.
