It is an operational foundation that designs and implements its own projects aligned with its aim, the cornerstones of which are training, communication and raising awareness on issues related to energy and the environment, with the fundamental goal of fostering a rational use of energy resources and promoting sustainable development.
Meanwhile, the Foundation, aware of the problems of current society, wants to fight a social reality that affects an ever greater section of society: energy vulnerability. To do so, it undertakes actions that particularly affect vulnerable groups such as direct social actions at NGOs, rehabilitation of social housing, the implementation of an energy school or professional training of people at risk of exclusion in relation to energy and the environment.
We also promote educational and informative activities aimed at preserving and disseminating the historical and cultural heritage of the gas and electricity sector, and its Historical Archive, considered to be one of the most representative of the country.
Commitment to society and the environment Programmes aimed at combating a social reality that affects more and more people in society every day: energy poverty. They include the Energy-related Refurbishment Charity Fund, the Energy School and the Energy Volunteering Programme.
Environmental managementseminars on energy and the environment, and the efficient use of energy resources.
Applied research on issues arising at the interface between energy and the environment.
Informative publications, with rigour and clarity.
Education and communicationprogrammes to foster knowledge about energy-related issues, as well as touring exhibitions on energy and the environment accompanied by activities for schoolchildren and the general public aimed at encouraging reflection on the future and the importance of using natural resources efficiently.
The Foundation’s lines of work
Priority is given to social action in areas such as education, access to energy and dialogue with communities.It is worth highlighting the launch of the Energy Vulnerability Plan in Spain in partnership with the company. Under this initiative, such initiatives have been developed as the Energy School, the Energy Volunteering Programme and the Refurbishment of homes for vulnerable groups.
