Endesa’s Smartcity Málaga Project is Europe’s largest eco-efficient city initiative. It aims to increase energy efficiency, reduce CO2 emissions and boost the use of renewable energy sources.
The area comprising Smartcity Malaga covers 4 km2 involving some 11,000 domestic and 1,200 industrial and service customers. A consortium of 11 companies spearheaded by Endesa is rolling out state-of-the-art technologies in smart metering, communications and systems, network automation, generation and storage, and smart recharging infrastructure for e-vehicles.
The zone has around 11MW of renewable generation capacity, which includes numerous roof-mounted photovoltaic installations spread throughout the city, a cogeneration facility, vertical-axis wind turbines and generation systems integrated in street lighting.
