THE Junta has once again committed to making Andalucia a green energy powerhouse.

Officials want to reduce the region’s energy consumption by 25% and increase the amount of energy created by renewable sources by 25%.

Business and economy minister Jose Sanchez Maldonado made the announcements at a conference in Sevilla, where he admitted that 80% of carbon dioxide emissions in Andalucia are due to energy use.

He hopes in part to meet the target by better-integrating solar businesses based in the region, which are some of the most forward-thinking in Europe.
