“We want that the improvement in productivity based on energy is not a casual result but an integrated and articulated solution by the National Government, the communities and the private sector. That is what the democratization of energy through the Energy Communities is all about. in non-interconnected areas”, assured the director of Ipse, Javier Campillo.
