2.  Viva EKOenergía. Promotion tour in Spain.

Our Spanish volunteer Paloma Azcuenaga combined her holidays in Spain with an EKOenergy promotion tour. Main event on the agenda was the Forum de Energía Sostenible in Barcelona, organized by the Spanish EKOenergy partner Ecoserveis.

3.  EKOenergy in Basque and Galician 

We left well equipped to Spain (see also paragraph above). The EKOenergy text was already available in Spanish and Catalan. And we the help of the PerMondo Initiative for free translation of web pages and documents for NGOs, we managed to get a Basque and Galician translation as well. Thanks a lot.

4.    One month, four project applications

Last month, the EKOenergy team has been concentrating on project writing.
- We wrote 1 project for the Nordic Council of Ministers'. Focus is on setting up pilot projects to test the EKOenergy biomass criteria.
- We wrote 1 EVS project (European Volunteer Service). We want to host more volunteers at the EKOenergy secretariat.
- We developed a project with a Finnish graduate student to help Finnish companies to implement the new Finnish law on electricity tracking and electricity disclosure.
- Last but not least, we wrote an IEE project (Intelligent Energy Europe) about 'Empowering Renewable Electricity Consumers'.
