Created in 1982 to develop the energy policy in the Basque Country

Basque Energy Agency: 35 years working for energy improvement in the Basque Country

EVE's energy projects over the period are estimated to have generated 142 million euro for the Basque economy

  • In the last three decades, over €30 million has been allocated to aid for renewable energy.
  • A commitment to natural gas has sped up investment and gasification of the region, providing industry with competitive energy prices and high-efficiency industrial technologies. This has been of key importance for competitiveness on global markets, and has helped maintain employment and industrial GDP.
  • Thanks to the introduction of natural gas, oil use has dropped from 62% to 43% of consumption in the period, while the use of coal -the energy source with the highest emission rates- he been completely eliminated. Natural gas has also brought universal access to home comfort.
  • Renewable energy now meets 7% of Basque energy demand and accounts for the entirety of the region's self-sufficiency. The Basque government is committed to research in this area, with test centres such as BIMEP and CIC Energigune, generating new industrial opportunities in the energy industry.
  • The Basque Government's energy agency, Ente Vasco de la Energía (EVE), is celebrating its 35th anniversary. Throughout its history, it has contributed to the development of a planned and sustained energy policy for the Basque Country. From the in...

    La ciudadanía vasca respalda las renovables y el gas

    You should not use your heating systems to keep hot, but so as not to be cold.
    Set the thermostat to 20°C; this is the ideal temperature for your home. Every degree centigrade above this figure increases your consumption unnecessarily by 7%.
    Use hot water only when necessary. Saving water means saving energy.
    You can use renewable energy in your home energy supply, with equipment that harnesses energy from the sun, the air and biomass.
    Try to use the best energy-saving invention of all.... "the switch". Make maximum use of natural light.
    Buy domestic appliances with Class A++ energy labelling: they'll save you large quantities of energy and money.
    Use your microwave instead of your regular oven: it saves over 60% energy and time.
    Make maximum use of your washing machine's capacity and make sure it is always working at full load.
    Turn off your computer altogether when you are going to be away from it for more than 30 minutes.
    Electric vehicles are a very efficient alternative for road transport.
    Around town, use public transport to get around and leave your car parked.
    For medium and long-distance trips, public transport is up to 6 times more efficient than the car.
    Biofuels such as bioethanol and biodiesel directly replace fossil-based petrol and diesel.
    Biofuels are a form of renewable energy that reduces the consumption of petroleum derivatives and pollutant emissions.
