We increase our renewable production by 11 % in the first quarter, driven by investments in clean energy

#renewable energy

We ended the first quarter of 2023 with 40,344 MW of green capacity, an increase of 5.3% compared to the same period last year. Photovoltaic capacity increased by 40% to 4,576 MW due to new installations in Australia, Spain, the United States and Brazil, while onshore wind grew by 4% to 20,202 MW. The increased contribution of renewables brings our emission-free production ratio to 84%.

We remain committed to renewable energies as the only way to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and promote energy self-sufficiency, which is so necessary at a critical time like the present. Therefore, our renewable energy production stood at 24,137 GWh in the first quarter of 2023, according to the energy balance sheet data [PDF] submitted to the CNMV. Spain is the country where more renewable capacity has been installed in the first quarter compared to the same period last year, while Brazil has 549 MW of new capacity at the end of the first quarter of 2023.

The Iberdrola facility map is an interactive way of viewing the company's main global operating data: the installed capacity of each technology, net electricity production and other data including distributed power, supply points and the group's customers in all the countries in which we operate.

The information on this map is updated every quarter, based on the results for the period, and it breaks down the installed capacity in each country and region according to the electricity generation technologies operated by the group: renewables (onshore wind, offshore wind, hydroelectric, mini-hydraulic, battery storage, solar and others); nuclear; combined cycle and cogeneration.
