In the context of climate change, and taking into account the goals of the Paris Agreement, it is essential to invest in the decarbonisation of the economy and in the energy transition of cities towards cleaner and more efficient energy sources.
Municipalities, as managing bodies of a considerable number of buildings and equipment, have a fundamental role in promoting energy sustainability. In this context, effective energy planning will allow us to optimize the provision of services and improve the quality of life of citizens, either by reducing energy consumption costs or by reducing the emission of greenhouse gases (GHG).
The Municipality of Loulé has been implementing measures for the rational use of energy over the last few years, namely through the installation of various equipment, with a view to reducing electricity consumption, as well as GHG emissions into the atmosphere, without prejudice to the quality of the services provided by the intervened installations, as well as initiatives promoting energy efficiency and the use of alternative energies.
