We are committed to renewable energies to support the energy transition

  
       

 

 
 

We have reduced our direct greenhouse gas emissions by 42% since 

   
Having made the development of renewables the cornerstone of our strategy, we were the successful bidders - at the latest renewable-energy auction under the new remuneration framework organised by the Spanish Government - for a total of 235 MW (38 MW wind power and 197 MW solar power), distributed between wind and solar technologies. The result of this auction is in line with our growth targets and joins the more than 300 MW we approved at the end of 2020, which are currently at the construction stage

We have started up new renewable projects in 2020 with 151 MW of new renewable capacity in Spain, which has meant an increase in installed renewable capacity to 29% globally and an increase in electricity produced from water, wind and sun, which has reached 22% of the total electricity generated in 2020. Thus, we have increased installed renewable wind and solar power by 1,142 MW, 1.9 times more than in 2017.

With regard to growth investments in 2020, in line with the energy transition, 115 million euros have been allocated to the development of various renewable generation projects in Spain (solar and wind), with 151 MW that have been put into operation in 2020, 287 million euros invested in the development of 181 MW of wind power in Australia and 307 MW of wind and solar power in Chile that will come into operation in the coming months.

As regards our commitment to renewable energies, we are proud of the leading position we have acquired in Australia, where, through the projects awarded or in operation, we will have an installed capacity of 700 MW.

In 2020, we emitted 14.3 million tCO2 eq into the atmosphere, a reduction of 30% compared to 2017, and the new renewable power added to that already in operation prevented the emission of more than 5 million tCO2 eq into the atmosphere.



 In terms of renewable energy innovation, we are committed to implementing new technologies, monitoring assets and managing them in an autonomous and smart manner.

Innovation
Innovation is key to staying one step ahead of the impact of societal changes such as the digital transformation, which affects lifestyles, customer needs or the energy transition to a decarbonised economy.

Photovoltaic test field  in La Nava, Ciudad Real
This project aims to carry out tests on different solar panels, trackers and other equipment, as well as design parameters for photovoltaic solar generation facilities. Tests of bifacial panels have been carried out and a comparison of the results with the current panels will be started.
