Iberdrola to commission,400 new MW of solar power in Spain
The company is presently executing 12 new PV systems totalling 550 MW and plans to start construction of another 873 MW this time.
New developments have enabled Iberdrola to increase its installed photovoltaic capacity by 55 in the first half of the time.
Iberdrola is consolidating its position as the leading protagonist of photovoltaic solar energy, one of the most effective technologies in the fight against climate change. The company’s commitment to the development of this renewable source will allow it to add,400 new solar megawatts( MW) in Spain in the coming months. The company is presently executing 12 photovoltaic systems, with a combined installed capacity of 550 MW, half of them located in Extremadura, where Iberdrola is erecting the Almaraz I and II shops( 80 MW), which will be connected to the grid this time, and the Tagus complex in Alcántara, comprising four shops with a total capacity of 200 MW.
The company is also erecting six other installations in Castilla y León and Andalusia using this technology, totalling 271 MW. These are the Villarino factory( 50 MW) in Salamanca; the Guillena design( 144 MW) in Seville; Cespedera( 27 MW) in Cadiz; and Virgen de Aremos III( 50 MW) in Palencia. In addition, Iberdrola plans to start construction this time on another six systems that will give 873 MW of new solar power in four independent communities Ciudad Rodrigo( 318 MW) in Salamanca; Fuentes( 50 MW), Valbuena( 50 MW) and Manantiales( 30 MW) in Guadalajara; Peñarrubia( 50 MW) in Murcia; and Cedillo( 375 MW) in Cáceres.125 further SOLAR PRODUCTION UNTIL JUNEIberdrola ended the first half of the time with further than,200 MW of photovoltaic power installed in Spain, 800 MW further than the same period last time, representing an increase of further than 55 in the period. The new capacity has allowed the company to increase its solar product in the country by 125 up to June, to,067 GWh. An quantum that would have needed some 184 million boxy metres of gas to be generated by a combinedcycle.Spain’s drive has enabled the group to increase its global installed capacity in this technology by 56- which has reached,448 MW- and to reach a total product of 1.870 GWh( the same quantum of energy as that generated by further than 320 million boxy metres of gas). These numbers confirm the company’s firm commitment to this renewable, indefatigable andnon-polluting energy source, able of conforming to natural cycles and rainfall conditions, which offers the advantage of allowing product through both marketable- scale shops and small tone- consumptionfacilities.Among the systems commissioned so far this time is the Francisco Pizarro design which, with 590 MW of power, is the largest photovoltaic factory in Europe and the Iberdrola group’s largest factory of this type in the world. Made up of1.5 million photovoltaic modules, it’ll induce enough clean energy to supply further than,000 homes and help the emigration of,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere peryear.Mention should also be made of the Romeral and Olmedilla shops in Cuenca, each with 50 MW, which will produce clean energy for a population fellow to further than,500 homes/ time, and close to,000 homes/ time, independently. In addition to these shops, Iberdrola will start product with 100 MW of photovoltaic power at Puertollano, in Ciudad Real, where Iberdrola has the largest green hydrogen factory for artificial use in Europe, and the Revilla- Vallejera factory in Burgos, the first photovoltaic design promoted and developed by the company in Castilla y León, with 50 MW ofpower.The Iberdrola group began its commitment to renewable powers more than two decades ago as a abecedarian pillar on which to make its clean, dependable and intelligent business model. Thanks to this vision, the company is moment a world leader in renewable powers, with,000 MW of renewable capacity installed worldwide-,370 MW in Spain- at the end of the first half of 2022, and is a leader in the energy transition towards a low- emigration frugality. This commitment is reflected in its investment plan, which aims to double its renewable capacity to,000 MW by 2025, rising to,000 MW by 2030. This solid growth is verified by the further than,800 MW of renewable capacity under construction at the end of the first half of 2022.
