Energy Efficiency Description:

The Plan to promote environmentally friendly behaviour in the tourism sector (PIMA SOL) is intended to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases from the Spanish tourism sector. In particular, it promotes the reduction of direct GHG emissions in hotel facilities through energy efficiency improvements. The beneficiaries of the Plan are hotels, which will implement measures leading to increased energy efficiency of their facilities based in Spain. The energy efficiency projects carried out by hotels, after meeting specific criteria, will generate carbon credits equal to the reduction of 1 tonne of CO2. The government is obligated to buy them at the fixed price of EUR 7 per credit.
