In the same session, a study on the wind energy model in high-rise buildings in Benidorm was published.
The City Council presents the Action Plan for Climate and Sustainable Energy to the Mobility Council
The Plenary Hall of Benidorm City Council today hosted a session of the Mobility, Universal Accessibility and Sustainable Energies Council chaired by Mayor Toni Pérez in which, among other items on the agenda, the Action Plan was presented to the Council for Climate and Sustainable Energy (PACES), which was already approved by the plenary in its last session.
The PACES includes the lines of action to be developed by the different socioeconomic sectors of the city to have a basic planning instrument to promote coordinated and coherent action among them. The plan stems from Benidorm's adherence to the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, from which it emerged with the commitment to present the PACES within two years, as well as to carry out an inventory of reference emissions and an assessment of risks and vulnerabilities arising from climate change.
The PACES establishes for the year 2030 to have a share of 27% of renewable energies, a saving of 27% in the energy consumed and 40% less greenhouse gas emissions, in addition to adapting to climate change. For climate change mitigation objectives, a total of 85 actions have been established in the PACES.
On the other hand, in said session the wind energy model for high-rise buildings in Benidorm was also presented, a study prepared by TM Real Estate Group which it is addressed how to take advantage of the height and geometry of the city's buildings to obtain wind energy.
This would be done in three phases. The first would be the analysis of the typologies of the city's towers and the use to which they are destined. The second would focus on the development of a real wind map of Benidorm so that the intensity, direction, variation, etc. would be known. In that sense, there is already an anemometer installed in Poniente "but we must continue implementing this tool" they have exposed.
The last phase would aim to analyze the advantages that each building has to obtain maximum wind performance. “With this, it is determined if the installation of the generators is viable” they point out.
Lastly, the meeting reported the incorporation of the sanitation and drinking water concessionaire, Hidraqua, to said Mobility Council.
