Galicia leads a European project for the creation of biomass-based energy communities

Galicia is leading a European project whose objective is to promote the creation of biomass-based energy communities in rural areas as a viable alternative for the production of local energy from the use of the resources of the surrounding mountains. Specifically, these communities include biomass heat networks complemented with photovoltaic energy in the model villages of the municipalities of Cerdedo-Cotobade (Parada-Mouteira) and Monterrei (Infesta), for which a budget of around 700,000 euros will be allocated.

In this way, the ‘model villages’ initiative, promoted by the Xunta de Galicia in development of the Law of recovery of agricultural land, favours the attraction of European funds in the field of energy transition.
