The Basque Government first created its own energy agency in 1982, the Energiaren Euskal Erakundea – Ente Vasco de la Energía (Basque Energy Board) to lay the foundations for an energy policy that has been grounded on energy efficiency, diversification of energy sources and promotion of renewables.
The Ente Vasco de la Energía is the Basque Government’s energy agency. Its mission is to:
- Propose energy strategies for the Basque Country, based on criteria of supply security, cost competitiveness, sustainability and technological development.
- Participate in developing these strategies and contribute to meeting the targets established therein.
