The Vilawatt project: Innovative local public-private-citizen partnership for energy governance

The objective of the project is to promote efficient energy management, focusing on the environment and the fight against climate change, as well as on combatting energy poverty. This is how the City of Viladecans presented the Vilawatt project to Urban Innovative Actions (UIA), the EU’s initiative to fund innovative projects by cities with more than 50,000 inhabitants. The Vilawatt project received a €4.2 million grant from the UIA programme, which, in addition to the €1.1 million put forward by the Viladecans City Council, has allowed for the development of the project and the creation of a Local Energy Operator (Vilawatt).
