For this episode, we have met Alba del Campo. Alba is a Spanish journalist and activist fighting for more energy democracy. She is also advisor to the local authority of Cadiz since 4 years. A new local government was elected in 2015 and re-elected in 2019. Since then, the city opened the energy politics to its citizens. This was a first radical step. And there are many more to come. Alba explains why and how they managed to make affordable and sustainable energy such a key topic. And to which extent did the fact that Cadiz also hosts Electrica de Cadiz, Spain’s biggest local energy company, have an impact on this new energy policy culture?
