Barcelona was the first city in the world to pass an ordinance requiring the installation of solar energy technologies in new buildings.  Since the year 2000, the surface area of solar installations has increased ten-fold, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by more than 3000 tonnes.  Barcelona’s solar ordinance is part of the City’s Energy Improvement Plan, a global plan of action to reduce energy consumption and support renewable energy with specific, quantifiable objectives for the year 2010.
