One of the intentions of the Forum 2004 in Barcelona was to take advantage of the area’s existing infrastructure. So they integrated the existing Besòs sewage treatment plant (total urban renovation area 100 hectares) and covered parts of it with photovoltaics. On the plaza, the Esplanade, is a sailing school, also covered with panels. The Pergola stands a bit further out towards the sea, on the entrance to the new Port Forum. A sculptural concrete structure with a simple plane offers a nice place of shade on its otherwise large, empty and mostly hot area. Expected performance ratio of Pergola system: 1.250 kWh/kWp (annual yield app. 554 MWh/year). The city has 55 projects to establish a more sustainable city model, whilst reducing environmental impact through energy savings, an increase in the use of renewable energies and energy efficiency. In order to maximize solar exposure throughout the year, the panel faces south and is tilted at a 35° angle. Excellent sea views.

How to get there? If you walk or cycle along the sea from the Port Olímpic for about 3 km, you’ll get to this area (also accessible by tram from the city). Well worth a visit.
