¿How much it costs to reach that goal? The intent of the Xunta include direct investments of 568 million between 2011 and 2015.Of them,145 (25% of total)will be financial aid for the promotion of savings and energy efficiency.This Xunta spending should result in a plan that will include specific measures for public authorities and industrial sectors, primary, services, domestic and transport.In parallel,the project started with actions defined as «global level» which include information campaigns to promote economy and efficiency, training, advising public and private institutions, participation in European projects and planning of energy infrastructure.
