Action Plan

Within the Vitoria-Gasteiz solar Action Plan the following long-term targets have been set :
- Identification of the realistic solar potential at municipal level by 2012. Integration of solar requirements in the Urban Master Plan and Energetic Ordinance by 2015.
- Mobilization of 10% of the assessed solar potential in the existing industrial area of the city by 2015.
- Main focus areas of the Action Plan will be existing and new developments in Lakua District (376 Has. of surface, mainly residential use) and the industrial area of Jundiz (710 Has.). The most important stakeholders for the implementation of the Action Plan are the City council and its different departments.

In order to support the integration of solar energy at urban level in Vitoria-Gasteiz as well as contribute to the CO2 emissions reduction and renewable energies promotion targets, 5 short-term measures have been indentified, 3 of which will be implemented as “Pilot Actions” within POLIS project :
1. (Pilot Action) Development of a methodology for the assessment of the realistic solar potential of urban areas, and application to the district of Lakua (2009-2010).
2. (Pilot Action) Assessment of the realistic solar potential of the industrial area of Jundiz (2010-2011).
3. (Pilot Action) Assessment of the realistic solar potential of the complete city of Vitoria-Gasteiz (2011).
4. Development of a Planning guideline for passive and active PV solar energy to be included in the city Urban Master Plan (2012-2013).
5. Mobilisation of the solar potential identifed in Jundiz industrial area (2012-2013).
