La Palma has been selected by the European Commission as one of six territories for a clean energy pilot project.
The objective is to serve as an example of energy transition and to achieve self-sufficiency, prosperity and sustainability.
In the case of La Palma, it will develop and publish its clean energy transition agenda during the summer of 2019. The European Union has studied these six territories, and believes that by 2020, the list will be extended to over 20 islands across the EU, which will become examples to follow and to demonstrate the direction to follow to achieve energy transition.
This clean energy pilot project will include solar, wind and geothermal energy sources that could overcome the use of costly fossil fuels that are expensive and environmentally damaging to the world.
