Building on yesterday’s meeting of the United Nations Assembly for the Environment (highest world decision-making body in environmental issues), in Nairobi, Kenya, the group of installers represented by Fenie reaffirms that self-consumption and electric mobility are part of the solution to pollution.
The high levels of pollution recorded in recent months have triggered all the alarms, at European level and have encouraged some of its member countries to take measures to alleviate the consequences. Therefore, the collectivity of installers grouped under Fenie applaud these initiatives and others such as the Assembly of the United Nations for the Environment to take place from December 4 through 6 in Nairobi with pollution as the main issue.
In a statement, the National Federation of Electrical and Telecommunications Installers of Spain regrets that in many cases the measures adopted in this regard are “short-term solutions that fail to eradicate the root problem.”
And in this line, they advocate the promotion of electric vehicles and infrastructures that accelerate full penetration of such means of transport, with the aim of achieving a clean transport system and social awareness that benefits the entire planet.
Self-consumption and electric mobility
Self-consumption is the other area for which the group of installers commits to fight in order to contribute to a pollution–free world. “An example of this is the intensive work carried out by FENIE, in its constant relationship with the parliamentary groups with greater representation in the Congress of Deputies,” they recall.
Their proposal to decouple off-grid self-consumption from the Royal Decree on Self-consumption has already conquered affinity from these parliamentary groups, as evidenced in the round table: ” Self-consumption viability and its socioeconomic potential“, during FENIE XVIII National Congress, which took place last October.
At this table, Fenie gathered energy representatives from all the Parliamentary Groups with a greater presence in the Congress of Deputies. Jesús Sansó Olmos, Deputy spokesman of Ciudadanos Parliamentary Group in matters of Environment delivered statements aligned with the requests of the installers group, while Guillermo Mariscal Anaya, spokesperson on energy issues of the Popular Parliamentary Group stated that they would indeed eliminate the charges on self-consumed energy, as long as there is no extra cost to the system.
On the other hand, Oscar Galeano, Vice-speaker of Energy of PSOE Parliamentary Group in the Congress of the Deputies Commission, while affirming that his party has transferred FENIE´s demands, stressed the significance of conveying a fully coherent and credible message. Jorge Luis Bail, deputy spokesman of the Energy Commission of the Confederated Parliamentary Group of Unidos Podemos-En Comú Podem-en Marea (GCUP-EC-EM), also agreed with FENIE proposal on off-grid self-consumption, although it is true that his party advocates broader measures, the Federation says.
