    While exact figures and rankings are unavailable, many claim Barcelona to be the city in Europe powered by the largest percentage of solar power. Spain is not only one of the top manufacturers of solar power in the world, but its government has also chosen Barcelona to be a beacon of its renewable (primarily solar) energy program. Barcelona is the first European city to enact and implement a “Solar Thermal Ordinance,” which sets mandatory solar targets for running water in new buildings. Plus, Barcelona has the highest density of solar panels in Europe.   

    In addition to solar, Barcelona has employed a wide array of clean energy programs that have help to drastically lessen itscarbon footprint. Its approaches include deploying not only solar energy but also energy efficiency, biofuels, wind and innovative clean energy financing mechanisms.
