Just Transition Strategy

Last updated: 19 July 2021

The 'Agreement for a Fair Energy Transition for thermal power plants in closure' includes the commitment of the parties to accompany the labour transition and economic reactivation of the areas affected by the closure of thermal power plants located in  Aragon, Andalusia, Asturias, Castile and León, and Galicia.  With the adhesion of the energy group EDP, coal-fired power plants in Spain are incorporated into this agreement. Through this agreement, the companies undertake to develop a support plan for workers and territories that includes proposals for new investments in the areas, as well as to design relocation plans for their own personnel and give priority to hiring workers from auxiliary companies.  The Just Transition Agreements (CTJ) are the main instrument for this policy. These agreements define specific investments and projects and identify sources of funding.
