Data equals power: The power to be able to understand reality, to be able to make good decisions and to achieve goals. On this page, we present a selection of important data in the context of energy and climate change on La Palma.
On the ClimateView link, you can see all the greenhouse gas emissions of La Palma, as well as the decarbonisation targets and projects currently underway on the island. We make sure to regularly update the ClimateView data, which reflects our agile way of working to ensure that the information we dispose of translates into maximum impact as quickly as possible.
La Palma was selected in February 2019 as one of the 6 pilot islands of the European Commission’s Clean energy for EU islands initiative. The selection involved, among other things, technical support to write a participatory Transition Agenda. This is our first version of the Agenda:
Below you can find a selection of 5 graphs to help illustrate the current electricity situation on the island. Note that this data relates to electricity only, and therefore does not include fossil energy used for transport or other non-electricity uses.
The following graphs show the self-consumption installations in the Canary Islands Government’s Administrative Register of Electricity Self-consumption Installations. The first graph shows their evolution over time and the second shows their distribution by municipality.
