EnergyLab, an international technological center for energy efficiency and sustainability

energylab.jpgA Spanish utility Union Fenosa-led consortium has launched EnergyLab, an international technological center for energy efficiency and sustainability.

The center seeks to become a standard-setter in Spain and internationally, to guide, co-ordinate and lead the way for projects which have a significant impact on society, the economy and the environment.EnergyLab’s primary goal is to encourage the use of more environmentally-friendly technologies at competitive prices and with an equal or greater level of quality and comfort for the consumer.

Founding partners include Inditex, Indra, Finsa, Philips, GOC and Union Fenosa, the Galician Foundation for an Information Society, the regional government’s Ministry for Innovation and Industry, and three universities from Galicia, a region in Northwestern Spain.

Alberto Gago, rector of the Vigo University, where EnergyLab will be located, has been nominated as the chairman.

Spain’s annual energy efficiency indices reveal significant potential for saving energy and cutting costs in homes and SMEs, simply by changing basic consumption habits and equipment.

EnergyLab represents a nexus between energy needs and demands on the one hand, and the existence of technologically-competitive companies in the field of energy systems and installations plus universities with the human and material resources required for research.
