The current trends in the energy sector — the decarbonisation of the economy to combat climate change and air pollution, the need for more energy production to cope with increasing demand, the development of streamlined processes to handle growing competition and a new customer-oriented approach with more information and a proactive attitude — have sharpened the focus of our three global businesses: Networks, Renewables and Wholesale and Retail, and all of these are customer-centric.

The Iberdrola group accelerates the creation of value through five strategic pillars: profitable growth, operational excellence, customer focus, capital optimization and, finally, digitisation and innovation.
