Iberdrola, the energy company of the future
The company has undergone a major transformation over the last 15 years, staying clearly ahead of the energy transition in order to tackle the challenges posed by climate change and the need for clean electricity.
Boasting a track record that spans over 170 years, today Iberdrola is a multinational group leading the energy sector: the company produces and supplies electricity to some 100 million people in the countries in which it operates. Furthermore, the company has become the leader in clean energy —Iberdrola is the first renewable producer amongst European utilities and the cleanest power company in the USA, with almost zero emissions—, it is pioneering the rollout of smart grids and has an energy storage capacity in excess of 4 GW.
This is the result of the combination of its corporate vision —which in 2001 led the company to look ahead to future trends in the sector—, the strategy followed to make this vision a reality, its successful implementation, and the ethical values that have always guided all the group's actions. On this basis, Iberdrola is now embarking on a new stage of growth, supported by a strong investment drive between 2016 and 2020, essentially in regulated businesses or with long-term contracts, which will provide the security, stability and visibility that are the hallmarks of the company's business model. Likewise, Iberdrola will continue maintaining its social commitments, acting as a driver for the growth and generation of employment in the countries where it operates, and creating sustainable value for all its stakeholders.
