Iberdrola starts construction of photovoltaic factory in Palmela, Portugal .


The Conde PV factory is Iberdrola’s first in Palmela and one of four PV shops Iberdrola is formerly developing in the Setúbal quarter, all of which were awarded in the 2019 solar transaction. desarrolla en el distrito de Setúbal, todas ellas adjudicadas en la subasta solar de 2019.
Covering an area of nearly 20 hectares, the Conde factory will produce further than 20 GWh/ time of photovoltaic energy.
The energy produced is original to supplying an normal of homes per time and will help the emigration of around tonnes of CO2 per time.
Iberdrola has moment started work on the Conde photovoltaic factory (13.51 MW), located in Palmela, with a total face area of nearly 20 hectares. This is one of the four photovoltaic shops that Iberdrola is developing in the Setúbal quarter, awarded in the 2019 photovoltaic transaction, and included in the investment acceleration plan accepted by the company, with the end of completing the workshop thisyear.Once functional, the factory will produce 20 GWh/ time, original to the average force of homes, and will avoid the emigration of some tonnes of CO2 peryear.In aggregate, the four shops will have a capacity of 86 MW Algeruz II (27.35 MW), Conde (13.51 MW), Alcochete I (32.89 MW) and Alcochete II (12.72 MW). Once they’re each in operation, they will avoid the emigration of tonnes of CO2 peryear.For Iberdrola, the launch of the workshop”certifies Iberdrola’s commitment to the development of renewable powers in Portugal. Iberdrola is at the global van of the energy transition, which is essential for the sustainability of the earth, but also to reduce energy dependence on unstable requests. The commitment to renewables guarantees the environmental future and the profitable security of families and companies”. The foundation gravestone of the Conde photovoltaic factory was laid by Renata Rodrigues, on behalf of Iberdrola Renewables Portugal, and Álvaro Manuel Balseiro Amaro, Mayor of Palmela, as a sign of their common commitment to the development of renewableenergies.In Portugal, Iberdrola serves a marketable portfolio of further than force points, has 92 MW of wind power in operation, and is commissioning the Támega gigabattery, one of Europe’s largest pumped- storehouse systems, with MW. This complex comprises three budgets (Gouvães, Daivões and Alto Támega) and three hydroelectric power shops, which will gradationally come on sluice by 2024. In fact, the company has just connected to the grid the first group of the Támega hydroelectric development, a pumping turbine with a capacity of 220 MW. The complex will be able of producing GWh per time, enough to meet the energy requirements of neighbouring cosmopolises and the metropolises of Braga and Guimarães ( homes). In addition, this large renewable structure will have sufficient storehouse capacity to serve two million Portuguese homes for an entire day and will contribute to the decarbonisation and energy independence objects set by the Portuguesegovernment.MORE COMMITMENT TO RENEWABLES, GRIDS AND STORAGEIn 2021, the company has committed further than€4.3 billion to investments in renewable energy. This increased investment has enabled the group to install new renewable megawatts (MW) in the last 12 months and to reach MW of renewable capacity worldwide. Construction capacity exceeds MW, of which MW is coastalwind.The Iberian Peninsula is deposited as the area in which utmost renewable capacity has been enforced, reaching MW of new installation, a figure that represents 56 of all installed capacity in 2021. Therefore, green MW have beenreached.This strong growth was largely driven by the Tâmega complex design, where the company commissioned the first group of the Gouvães hydroelectric factory. Also, it’s worth pressing the commissioning of 986 MW of photovoltaic power, with systems similar as the Francisco Pizarro photovoltaic factory (516 MW) and Arenales (150 MW).20 times agone, the company took on an important social part linked to the objects of combating climate change through renewable powers. So far, it has invested€ 120 billion to, among other objects, induce rudiments of renewable energy product, promote the development of smart grids and induce openings, transubstantiating sectors similar as ockyards.
