Helping municipalities to join the clean transition

At Intergia we specialise in bringing energy and sustainability solutions to the rural world. For this reason, one of our main clients are municipalities and City Councils, both large and small.

We help municipalities to manage their energy efficiently and economically.

Diagnosis to improve the contract with the electricity supplier: get the cheapest energy and adapt it to sustainability requirements (Guarantee of Renewable Origin).

Evaluation of the contracted power, in order to adapt it to the existing energy supplies and not to overpay.

Reactive power compensation: If reactive power overcharges are detected in electricity bills, it is necessary to check why they occur and compensate for them by installing condensing coils.

Diagnosis for the incorporation of renewable energy: generate your own clean energy to save on electricity bills or diesel consumption and be more sustainable. Always according to the particularities of each client: available space, power required, with or without connection to the grid…

Collective self-consumption is a type of self-consumption in which several consumers are allowed to be associated to the same generation facility or facilities. This means that several consumers can enjoy the photovoltaic energy produced in an installation that does not necessarily have to be on their own roof or land.

This has economic advantages, as less investment is required per consumer, which is amortised more quickly than in individual self-consumption.

In the case of municipalities, collective self-consumption is useful for municipal buildings to benefit from the production and use of their own energy. The photovoltaic installation can be placed in the most suitable available space (e.g. on top of the sports hall, on the roof of the schools…) and, depending on the installed power, municipal buildings within a 2 km radius can be part of the collective self-consumption, obtaining savings on their electricity bill.

To do this, it is necessary to carry out a study of the electricity contracts which are property of the City Council to determine the most suitable photovoltaic power and the savings that can be achieved on the electricity bills of:

  • municipal buildings
  • the sports hall
  • the electricity contract for the municipality festivities
  • the swimming pools
  • the town lightings
  • water pumping

A renewable energy community is defined as “a legal entity based on open and voluntary participation, effectively controlled by partners or members who are natural persons, SMEs or local entities, which develops renewable energy, energy efficiency and/or sustainable mobility projects that are owned by that legal entity and whose primary purpose is to provide environmental, economic or social benefits to its partners or members or to the local areas where they operate, rather than financial gain”.

In other words, it is an initiative in which the partners agree to carry out various actions ranging from producing and sharing renewable energy in a photovoltaic installation to promoting the use of a fleet of electric bicycles.

Energy communities have certain legal advantages that make it easier for them to carry out this type of project, but it must be borne in mind that they must be constituted as a legal entity. The community must prepare a Work Plan that includes its operational plan.

There are different types of energy communities, depending on how they want to be managed. An example of a community is that formed by the neighbours of a municipality, who decide to set themselves up as such and produce their own renewable energy, no longer depending on the electricity supplier to do so.

Some advantages of energy communities are:

  • Savings on electricity bills
  • Combating energy poverty
  • Stop relying on electricity companies
  • Empowering neighbours and municipalities
  • Environmental benefits

We advise and manage the processing of grants and subsidies for energy efficiency, renewable energies and sustainable mobility for municipalities and City Councils.

Development of plans to achieve the energy transition in municipalities. That is: implementing energy efficiency measures, substituting fossil fuels, including electric mobility, etc., with the aim of reducing emissions and achieving economic savings.

We help municipalities to realise their urban planning projects that include benefits for their residents and the environment:

  • Include systems to produce renewable energycorredor-verde
  • Include infrastructure for electric mobility
  • Design of green corridors and urban natural spaces
