16, 2010 - Xinhua
Spanish Vice President Maria Teresa Fernandez de la Vega on Tuesday approved the opening of an International Center for Renewable Energy (CICER) in Valencia.
The aim of the center is to battle climate change, provide access to energy sources and help developing countries use renewable energy sources through international cooperation.
CICER will promote the use of renewable energy in developing countries with the help of national and international development agencies.
It will try to identify development opportunities and propose projects with the help of experts in the field.
Meanwhile, it will also focus on making Spain a powerful participant at the next UN climate change conference in Mexico at the end of the year.
The battle against climate change is a key part of the EU's 2020 economic strategy, which is expected to be approved on March 22.
