One of the great challenges of this society is to achieve the change of the current energy model for another more sustainable, more efficient, more environmentally friendly and, of course, to ensure an improved social and economic world
That is why, and the unsustainability of the current energy model based on the consumption of fossil fuels that has so many harmful effects for all of us (when I say of harmful, I not only am referring to climate change), that the Electric Vehicle is being introduced in society as a GREAT alternative to our system of public and private mobility.
While it is true, we still have many who have doubts and especially when we think: where do I plug it if I go on a trip? … since, in many territories, there is not yet a recharge network that gives us peace of mind when we move our electric vehicle. To do this, there are a number of existing aid to carry out investments in charging equipment for electric vehicles.
Aids to encourage the use of the Electric Vehicle
In Andalusia, within the Intelligent Networks area of the Program for the Sustainable Energy Development of Andalusia we find very interesting incentive lines that have the following aims:
PROMOTE THE TRANSFORMATION OF OUR COUNTRY TOWARDS A SMART CITY MODEL, THROUGH A SUSTAINABLE ENERGY DEVELOPMENT THAT IS RESPECTFUL TO THE ENVIRONMENT
With this aid: what is encouraged?
The purpose of this line of aid is the development of infrastructures that facilitate the use of electricity, or the use of gas or hydrogen in the transport of people or goods, with actions such as:
CHARGING FACILITIES FOR SINGLE USE
RECHARGE FACILITIES PUBLICLY AVAILABLE
O RECHARGE ADVANCED FACILITIES
and for municipalities with fewer than 20.000 habitants, the percentage of aid can reach up to 70% of the fundable costs.
How can Letter Engineers help you?

Letter Engineers is awarded the service of management and control of public lighting of the City of Barcelona for 4 years.
Technical Assistance and Management of Public Lighting
The object of the contract is double: to be technical assistance in support of the operation of the control system as well as manage and optimize energy consumption.
Barcelona City Council decided in 2016 for a new centralized control service for its public lighting. The control is based on monitoring and supervision through a platform that integrates all the energy and maintenance aspects. Since 2018 this service will be managed by Letter Engineers and Bettergy, who will work closely with public lighting services of the City Hall. If everything goes well the company intends to be at least until 2022, since it is a contract extendable in 2 + 2 years.
Currently the scope of the contract consists of 2,909 command centers of which 60% of them are remote managed. The vast majority of them communicate with radio technology through 6 receivers, although there is also point-to-point management. In addition, in recent years they have been adding energy-saving measures such as flow regulators and LED lamps with different levels.
One of the most innovative systems in which we are working is the dynamic control of luminosity from lux measurements every 15 seconds. System implemented for years and that will be refined in the next.
Now Letter Engineers manages the public lighting of two of the largest and most emblematic Spanish city halls: Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca. Recall that we were awarded the contract to Palma in 2015 for a total of 4 years ending next year. With all this, the company strengthens and consolidates as the national benchmark in the efficient management of public lighting.
Letter Ingenieros acaba de finalizar el Curso GEM en el que la Diputación de Granada, a través de la Agencia provincial de la Energía, promueve la difusión y formación del nuevo modelo energético entre los municipios de la provincia de granada.
Agradecemos la gran aceptación de inscritos en el programa de formación GEM 2015
Entre el 17 de Marzo y el 17 de Mayo de 2015 casi 90 técnicos y responsables municipales han realizado una formación semipresencial, compuesta por 2 jornadas presenciales y una plataforma online de contenidos y cuestionarios asociados.
Se abordarán contenidos cómo, el sector energético en los municipios, la normativa aplicada, la eficiencia energética en el alumbrado público, la certificación energética en edificios municipales, actuaciones de energías renovables en los ayuntamientos. Una buena gestión energética municipal favorecerá que los servicios proporcionados se realicen con el menor coste posible, garantizando los niveles de control y calidad. Por lo que la formación de los gestores energéticos municipales resulta necesaria.
