Energy diversification and efficiency

Within the scope of the Ministry of Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, for the Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving (IDAE), we have provided technical assistance to the departments responsible for the coordination, monitoring, evaluation and verification of aid programme files aimed at promoting thermal and electrical renewable energies, storage, demand management and actions related to the integration of renewable energies.

Isdefe has been collaborating with the IDAE in the coordination and management of actions derived from the Energy Efficiency Directive, promoting energy saving projects in public administration buildings; training and management of plans that promote energy savings and renewables in the Administration, providing technical assistance in all aspects that the Institute has required in the performance of its functions and competencies. We have also collaborated in the start-up of renewable hydrogen; promoting the improvement of energy efficiency in the industrial sector, efficient mobility and energy rehabilitation of buildings.

For the Secretary of State for Energy, we highlight the support for the modelling of the national energy system, data collection and support in the development of future scenarios for the development of roadmaps derived from the National Integrated Energy and Climate Plan (PNIEC) and the Long-Term Strategy 2050 (ELP 2050). The monitoring of the fulfilment of the Plan’s objectives has been carried out, as well as the preparation and updating of the Strategies and roadmaps derived from it, such as the Energy Storage Strategy and the hydrogen roadmap (commitment to renewable hydrogen).

We have also carried out technical support activities in Data Governance in the energy field for the reception, monitoring and preparation of information on the energy sectors, on the parameters affecting these sectors; the study, monitoring and economic and financial analysis of the energy markets; as well as the comparison with markets in other countries and the monitoring of energy foresight methodologies.

Regarding our contribution with the State Ports and Port Authorities, we highlight the support provided in the development of the main strategic lines and in the implementation of the decarbonisation policy in ports of public interest in Spain.

Among our contributions, we highlight the support to the development of the implementation of the OPS (On shore Power Su-pply), providing support in the analysis, design and engineering of solutions in the main Spanish ports. Not forgetting the consultancy work on energy strategy, decarbonisation and dock electrification for the port authorities of Gijón, Almería, Las Palmas, Vigo, A Coruña, Ceuta and Tarragona, with a special mention for the important dock electrification project in Barcelona.

Our collaboration with the public entity ADIF has consisted of technical assistance for the analysis, development and implementation of the ADIF-ALTA VELOCIDAD energy management business model, including the analysis of positioning, definition of strategy and implementation. This support includes the execution of the necessary activities during the strategy deployment process until its implementation, including the development of the Energy Management Plan, energy criteria and studies for the implementation of energy self-consumption.

The service provided is aligned with the Integrated Energy and Climate Plan 2030, with the Long Term Strategy 2050 and with the Sustainable Development Goals established in the 2030 Agenda.

In the context of the Ministry of Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, for the Directorate-General for Energy Policy and Mines, we have supported the procedures related to the specific remuneration regime register, the electronic register of the economic regime for renewable energies and its information systems. Also in the analysis and control of investment plans for distribution networks in their multi-annual plans.

For the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, it has collaborated with the Directorate-General for International Trade and Investment on coordination and support missions for the “Pyramids” project in Egypt, supervising and coordinating the work.

In the international field, for the European Defence Agency, we managed the Framework Contract for the development of a feasibility study on the creation of the “Defence Energy Suite (DEneS) – En-hance and Maintain” interface, and analysis and exchange of Defence Energy Data (E-DCAS), the European Defence Sustainable Energy Profiling Projects (EDESEP), and the strategy for carrying out the associated tasks.
