Barcelona has opened the doors of the Fábrica del Sol, a facility that aims to raise awareness among citizens about sustainability and the reuse of resources to protect our planet.
Located in the old building of the Catalan Gas, which has been worked for a year, the 'factory' will promote sustainable energy habits with an exhibition, workshops and activities for all audiences.
The building has all the sustainable certifications -including the Green certificate, the first one granted in Spain-, something that is demonstrated by facts such as that most of the energy consumed has been produced by solar panels or that the lamps drive by fiber optic sunlight to darker lower floors. In addition, the building also hosts the third open manufacturing Ateneu of the city, focused on environmental issues.
The factory can be visited autonomously and with guided tours for schools and groups.
