The LATXA ENERGY Project works to turn the latxo sheep sector into an active agent in the electrification of consumption, through small, widely distributed generations, with multiple owners, and with new models of exchange and sharing of infrastructures and energy.


  • Improve the environmental performance of latxo sheep farms, through energy efficiency, power generation and reduction of the environmental footprint.
  • Highlight the development of products of differentiated quality, with a quantified and improved environmental footprint and with minimal energy expenditure
  • Contribute from the latxo sheep sector to the generation of clean energies that contribute to achieving an increasingly sustainable energy system in terms of competitiveness, security of supply and low carbon


Evaluate the sustainability of DO Idiazabal cheese-making cheese factories, from the milk of their herd, using the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) methodology, with special emphasis on their energy consumption, with the aim of improving energy efficiency and power generation at points of consumption, thus reducing the environmental footprint.
