Fundación Sotavento Galicia / Spain

Research and education for efficient energy use

Fundación Sotavento Galicia
R/ Doutor Teixeiro, 32-3º
15701 - Santiago de Compostela
A Coruña, Spain

The Fundación Sotavento Galicia was set up in 2005 to enhance and promote the programs for education, research and development of the Sotavento experimental wind farm in the Spanish region of Galicia. The foundation evaluates and considers all forms of renewable energy. The foundation’s involvement in R&D projects, combined with education and training targets, is exemplified in the promotion of the Bioclimatic Show House, a showcase of energy efficiency in buildings, which opened on Sotavento's premises in 2010. More than 20,000 national and international visitors from schools, universities and professional organisations have been counted since. The tours of the house, led by a multidisciplinary team of engineers and educators, build on prior knowledge of each group of visitors. Participants can see the foundations, concepts and materials of bioclimatic architecture in an accessible way. The installations and sources used for heating, water and electricity and the automatic control systems are also presented. The technologies used are monitored and compared for their efficiency. All this information will be displayed on screens installed in the house. A data base stores it for later scientific study. Fundación Sotavento Galicia has set a national precedent by combining research, education and training objectives reaching well beyond Spain. Its exemplary approach is to disseminate knowledge about the costs, benefits and environmental value of optimized energy use, relying on renewable resources
