Since the end of January is already operating the biomass boiler of La Girada District Heat which gives heat to the Archive, Dolores Piera School  and municipal nursery El Parquet buildings, with this renewable, decentralized and proximity energy. Under the European project LIFE “Vineyards for Heat” is becoming a reality to take advantage of pruning energy of the vines that is generated annually in the territory, treating it as a resource and not as a residue.

On Tuesday February 9th  the new General Director of INCAVI, Mr. Salvador Puig, visited the heating plant (biomass boiler and auxiliaries) on the side of the Regional Archive itself at the beginning of the Europa Avenue, accompanied by the heads of the various  associated entities: President of COVIDES, Mr. Joan Marcé, Councilman Environment of the City of Vilafranca, Mr. Josep Mª Martí, and President of Nou Verd, Mr. Jaume Domènech, who could verify the proper operation of the vine biomass  and the system equipment which has  all the elements to make it robust and comfort  guaranteed.

Outside of the heat plant will be informational sheets, at the same time that is being developed educational material that will be extended to the citizenship.
