Energy Academy Spain

On 31 March and 1 April, the Energy Academy Spain Edition took place on La Palma focusing on the energy transition on the Canary Islands.

The Regional Minister for Ecological Transition, Mr. José Antonio Valbuena, was there, as well as the Director of IDAE, Mr. Joan Groizard to discuss the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan of the Spanish government.
