1. To: Members of the Comenius project: "Addressing the Energy Crunch" From: Anna Toribio, Meritxell Vila and Claudia Oms Subject: National Campaign "Save Energy" Date: 3/2/11 1.INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this report is to inform on how we can save energy following the action plan from the Government of Spain. 2. SAVE ENERGY: This campaign uses a logo/brand to identify actions, projects and programmes being carried out as a part of the 2008-2011 Activation Plan for Energy Efficiency and Savings. � The "key ideas" the campaign transmited are: "Small gestures save energy" "The smart thing is to save energy, not to use it." (the commercials with the help of footballers from the Spanish National Team) There is a web page were you can find all the information about the project: http://www.idae.es/index.php/mod.pags/mem.detalle/relcategoria.1161/id. 354 3.OBJECTIVES: The overall aim of the awareness-raising campaign is to bring about a situation in which consumers contribute to Spain's strategic objectives for saving energy. 4.FIGURES: It should be borne in mind that as citizens (either at home or in our cars) we are responsible for 30% of the country's total energy consumption. By changing our individual habits and making sensible use of household appliances and lighting, or changing the way we buy equipment and use our vehicles, this percentage could be reduced considerably, with a significant cumulative effect. A number of figures stand out which are worth mentioning. For example, if we reduced the number of times we take the car to work by just 1%, using public transport instead, we would achieve an annual savings of up to 20 million litres of fuel, 49,000 tonnes of CO2 and 17 million euros in energy costs. In the case of lighting, if just one low consumption light bulb were fitted in each of Spain's 13.5 million homes, the savings in energy costs would come to 200 million euros a year, and 2 million tonnes of CO2 emissions would be avoided. For each degree centigrade you lower the temperature of the central heating or raise the temperature of the air-conditioning, you can save up to 7% on the 5

energy bill. Efficient driving, which is to say, driving smoothly without sudden acceleration and with the tyres at the right pressure, can also reduce consumption by as much as 15%. Another example is that each passenger travelling by public transport uses three times less energy than when travelling by car. 5. CONCLUSIONS: This campaign is very interesting and surely will have good results.

2. To: Members of the Comenius Project “Addressing the Energy Crunch” From: Mireia Palou, Marta Pérez, Laura Pérez Subject: MOVELE Date: 1/2/11 1. INTRODUCCIÓN This report is to inform about the implementation of electrical vehicles in the campaign MOVELE of the Government of Spain: 2. MOVELEproyectomovele@idae.es MOVELE is a campain about save energy, with this, the Spanish Government think that we can transform the vehicles in electrical vehicles and that it is a good form for save energy. 3. OBJECTIVES OF THE CAMPAIGN - To demostrate that the use of electrical vehicles is possible in Spain. - To implement this kind of vehicles in the admistrations. - To implement the use of electrical vehicles by the companies. - To promote this tecnology. 4.FUNDING Ten million euros are destinated for: 15% in infraestructures, 5% in studies and 80% for get the vehicles.

5.CONCLUSION We think that it is good for the world but it is a bad idea because at the moment, buying an electrical car is very expensive. But in some years time, it is possible that the cars will be cheaper. Thanks for reading it!

3. To: Members of the Comenius Project “Addressing the Energy Crunch” From: Ariadna Nogué, Manjinder Kaur and Aina Márquez Subject: Plan Renove Date: January 2011 1.INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this report is to inform aboutan energetic plan in Spain. This plan is called in Spanish “Plan Renove”, “Renewal Plan”. We want to learn and explain what exactly it is and how it works. The few things we know before investigating are this plan wants to get efficient home appliances for each Spanish house. 2. PLA RENOVE: The “Pla Renove d'Electrodomèstics” (Renew Plan of House Appliances) is one of the measures of the “Pla d’Acció d’Estalvi i Eficiència Energètica 20082012” (Plan of action of saving and energetic efficiency), and it comes from the same plan in the years 2005-2007. 3. OBJECTIVES: The objectives of the “Plan Renove” are really simple.They give you money to help you buy an efficient home appliance. 4. WHAT IS AN EFFICIENT HOME APPLIANCE? An efficient home appliance is one which works with a very little part of energy. We know that it is efficient because it has an energetic label. This kind of label is the same for all over Europe. There are seven efficiency levels, identified with a colour code and letters. It goes from the dark green and the letter “A” for the most efficient ones, to the hard red and letter “G” for the less efficient ones. We consider one appliance as efficient when it has the code A, A+, or A++. 5. FUNDINGS: The fundings for the Plan Renove come totally from the government taxes, and it affects directly the owner of the shop where you buy the appliance. The usual discount goes from a 20% to a 5% in the original price. Plan Renove only helps you with efficient appliances. When you go to the shop, the price is already discounted, but the owners of the shop have to send some forms to the IDAE and the government. 6. CONCLUSIONS: Does the Plan Renove really work? We do not know it yet, because there are not statistics on the net, and, nowadays in Spain we are living a crisis situation

9


CAMPAIGNS FOR ADDRESSING THE ENERGY CRUNCH – COMENIUS PROJECT 2010-12

so the people only change their home appliances when it is strictly necessary. But the efficient appliances save a lot more of energy than the old ones, and that means you save a lot more of your money. And, in our opinion, it works. We think Plan Renove is a really good idea. With efficient appliances at least half of the energetic waste of a house is solved. It’s true the money comes from the taxes and that is a very expensive plan, but you get a lot in discount. And as we say, every little (or big) action counts.

4. To: Members of the Comenius project “Addressing the Energy Crunch” From: Ricard Casacuberta, Pitus Carbonés, Bryan Gallego. Subject: Energy efficient labelling Date:31-1-11 1.INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this report is to inform about the campaign carried out by the Government of Spain, Department of Industry, Tourism and Trade. 2. ENERGY EFFICIENT LABELLING: The Energy efficient labelling is used in Europe. It is for the people who buy appliances. With this labelling you can know how green your appliance is. The types of appliances that have labeled energy requirement are: -Fridges and freezers. -Dishwashers -Dryers. -Washing machines - dryers. -Domestic sources of light. -Ovens. -Air conditioning For more information: http://www.idae.es/index.php/mod.pags/mem.detalle/idpag.57/relcategoria.116 1 3. OBJECTIVES: This campaign serves in order that the people in Europe could know what his domestic appliances spend, and save more energy. The labels are a common part that refers to the brand name of the device and energy efficiency class and another part that will vary from appliance to others and referring to other facilities, according to their functionality (For example, the ability to freeze or spend of water for washing). There are 7 classes of efficiency, identified by a code of letters and colors ranging from green and the letter A for more efficient equipment, to the red and the letter G for the least efficient equipment. 4.RECOMMENDATIONS AND CONCLUSION:

12


CAMPAIGNS FOR ADDRESSING THE ENERGY CRUNCH – COMENIUS PROJECT 2010-12

Practical advice: -Fridge: Do not buy a bigger fridge than you need. Clean, at least once a year the back. -Washing machine: Use sun's heat to dry-up clothes. -Dishwasher: Use the dishwasher when it's full of dishes. -Dryer: With gas or heat pump you will save energy and money when you use your dryer. -Oven: Buy an oven type A. This is a good initiative by the Spanish government, but it does not give any money back to the people that buy these appliances. We think this is a good initiative because you can save money and energy, and you know how green your appliance is.

6. TO: Members of the Comenius Project: “Addressing the Energy Crunch” FROM: Mireia Sirera and Berta Pou SUBJECT: PANER (Plan de Acción Nacional de Energias Renovables) DATE: 7-2-11

1.INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this report is to inform about the national campaign called: National Action Plan for Renewable Energy, from 2010 to 2020. 2.PANER (Plan de Acción Nacional de Energias Renovables) The European parliament decided in 2009 that each state member of the European Union would elaborate a plan concerning renewable energy to get the national goals set by the European Parliament. 3.OBJECTIVES: The general goals are: 20% of the total energy used in the EU should be renewable energy and at least 10% of the energy used in each share should be renewable, too. In Spain the goal is to achieve in 2020 their use of 20% of renewable energy in general and concerning transport, 10%. 4. WHY? : The evolution and raise in the price of petroleum and the fact that it exists in sonly attain geographical areas has worried the developed countries for were than 30 years. The environment also suffers from it, the gases and other polluting materials damage it and cause the green-house effect. Spain uses a lot of energy from petroleum, more than the average European country. - 40% of the energy from petroleum necessaries in Spain is used in transport - 30% industry the rest, agricultural services. 5. RESULTS: In the last years the use of biofuel has increased. The biofuel plants produce more and more in Spain In 2020. ¾ of the use of electricity should be based in renewable energies and natural gas.

They have included renewable enegy to save energy as much as possible. They want to inform people how to save energy at home. The Town Hall must buy and use green energy as a priority. They must achieve the goals according to the PROGREMIC programme concerning the use of energy. They must make water saving campaigns. They should encourage people to use some saving water mechanisms and change their habits to save water. They must improve how they deal with their garden to reduce the use of water. They need public transport to reach the main working places: big companies, factories. Then the workers of these companies do not need to use private transport. They want to establish some “camins escolars”, that is, they want to create some safe walking routes for children to go to school on foot and help parents
