Lisboa E-Nova – Energy and Environment Agency of Lisbon is a private non-profit association whose purpose is to promote the sustainable development of Lisbon and its metropolitan area.
By incorporating measures to adapt to climate change and actions to mitigate it, as well as supporting innovation and the development of projects that enable greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to be reduced, Lisboa E-Nova is working towards achieving a low carbon city and one that is less vulnerable to the effects of the future climate. A city that is an example to follow on the path to decarbonization, while focusing on the welfare of the citizen and future generations. Lisboa E-Nova is a key player in the city in the pursuit of national and international energy and climate goals for 2030 and 2050, and is active in three broad areas:
Lisboa E-Nova develops projects with a sustainable and resilient future in mind, acting as an active element in the operationalization and transformation of the city, its citizens and the local economy.
The Strategic Guidelines (Energy, Water and Materials) contribute to the Agency’s activities in the areas of mitigation and adaptation to climate change and the leverage of new ideas and products within a “green” development concept, thus promoting entrepreneurship and innovation.
Energy is a core area for Lisboa E-Nova: developing innovation projects that explore different aspects of energy sustainability, particularly in the areas of energy efficiency, intelligent energy management and renewable energies, as well as designing support projects and the operationalization of local public policies.
In the area of Water, the Agency is focused on monitoring and analyzing municipal consumption, identifying opportunities, supporting the implementation of measures and intelligent management of municipal water uses, Nexus Water-Energy, and is also supporting and promoting the reuse of treated wastewater in the city.
Lisboa E-Nova’s activity in the area of the circular economy is centred on the conception and compilation of the Action Plan for the Circular Economy of Lisbon, based on an updated matrix of materials, as well as for the establishment of a platform of stakeholders that make the city’s strategy feasible and help to leverage it.
