Four Spanish islands are aiming to go to 100% renewable electricity by 2050, under a climate law proposed on Thursday.
Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca and Fomentera currently depend on a coal plant for nearly half of their power supplies and get only 2% from renewable sources.
The Balearic government wants to change all that, making the popular Mediterranean holiday destination into a beacon of sustainable tourism.
“With this law we want to make what’s often our biggest challenge – our nature as islands – into an opportunity,” said Joan Groizard, energy director in the regional government.
“Moving to 100% clean energy and mobility should be easier here than on the continent, so it’s our responsibility to get working on that head start.”
