Basque Energy Cluster

Asociación Cluster de Energía del País Vasco

The Basque Energy Cluster is a non-profit organisation set up in late 1996 within the framework of the Basque Government’s policy to foster competitiveness in the industrial sector. The Cluster currently comprises 171 businesses and agencies: energy sector operators, equipment and component manufacturers, engineering firms, service companies, Basque Science, Technology and Innovation Network agents and Basque Government public agencies.
