Naturgy continues its US growth as it begins construction on the Grimes project, its second major photovoltaic facility in the country. This new renewable power plant, located in the state of Texas, will include 210 MW of power that will be able to generate enough zero-emissions electricity to supply approximately 140,000 households.
This week, Naturgy has commissioned the Merengue II wind farm, the company’s second in Extremadura, and the Puerta del Jerte photovoltaic plant, the second of its kind in this autonomous region. Both installations allow the energy company to add 80 MW to those already in operation and reach 142 MW of renewable energy in the region.
Naturgy has launched Naturzero, a new comprehensive service designed to help its customers reduce their emissions and save on their energy bills through a wide range of efficient solutions that seek to maximise the benefits of the transition to a low-carbon economy. Calculate, Compensate and Reduce are the three axes around which this new Naturgy service revolves. Through Naturzero Calcula, the energy group will help companies calculate their carbon footprint and offer them a personalised decarbonisation strategy in line with the guidelines set by environmental regulations.
Naturgy will build its sixth biomethane production plant in Spain and the first in Andalusia in the municipality of Utrera (Seville). This new milestone, driven together with KEPLER Ingeniería and Ecogestión, is a further step in the Energy Group's ambition to play a leading role in the promotion of renewable gases as part of its commitment to energy transition and innovation.
Naturgy, through Naturgy Innovahub, its vehicle focused on research into technologies linked to the energy transition, and the City of Energy Foundation (CIUDEN) attached to the Institute for a Just Transition (ITJ) under the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (MITECO), have signed a collaboration agreement to develop a pioneering project in the field of energy storage based on second-life batteries from electric vehicles, which represents a milestone in the search for sustainable energy solutions.
Naturgy has commissioned Salinetas, its inaugural photovoltaic plant in the Canary Islands. Situated in the town of Telde, Gran Canaria, and backed by a €5.2 million investment, this new facility enables the energy company to reach 100 MW of renewable energy in operation. Additionally, there are 45 MW more currently under construction.
Naturgy and the European Investment Bank (EIB) have agreed a EUR 700 million loan, which the energy group will use to adapt its electricity distribution networks in Spain to further advance the energy transition and improve efficiency, service and quality of supply for the public. This will provide the company with additional financial resources for the digitisation of its electricity networks and to improve its operational flexibility and efficiency. Modernising and improving the efficiency of the grid will also contribute to national and European Union (EU) climate targets.
Naturgy and Australian company Wildfire Energy have reached an agreement to research and develop a novel gasification technology —Moving Injection Horizontal Gasification (MIHG)— to obtain quality green hydrogen, with negative net carbon emissions, by processing a wide range of dry urban and agricultural waste.
Naturgy will promote the first BioGNL project in Spain as part of its commitment to the decarbonisation of the current energy mix and innovation in sustainability. BioLNG is biomethane, a renewable gas produced from the recovery of waste, which in this case is liquefied for transport to the final consumer. This process is essential to drive the decarbonisation of transport.
Naturgy continues to grow in the field of energy self-consumption with the launch of its Virtual Battery, a new product that adds to its solar proposal to offer its customers greater control over their consumption and help them save. With this new offer, Naturgy allows customers who have a photovoltaic installation at home to accumulate the amount corresponding to the energy surpluses not compensated in the bill as a balance in the Virtual Battery and use it to reduce the cost of their energy bills.
