Valencia Conference Centre Generates More Clean Energy

Coinciding with World Environment Day, June 5th, the Valencia Conference Centre is launching the SDG Project, a global initiative, which covers all areas of the buildings activities.

The project will help Valencia to progress in its smart city strategy; to take urgent action to combat climate change and its effects, and to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.

Currently, sustainable investments represent 40 % of the total and it is estimated that they also save approximately 1 million kWh in annual energy consumption. These reductions avoid the emission of 707 tonnes in CO² eq., the approximate amount emitted into the atmosphere by 150 vehicles on the roads in one year. The project is part of the Centres Sustainability Plan, which already has a number of milestones under its belt. These include the installation of the photovoltaic roof in 2008, which has already generated more than 3 million kWh of clean energy.
