The Iberdrola group is today one of the largest utility companies in terms of market capitalisation and a leader in renewables. Innovation plays a key role in our aim to consolidate our position as the energy company of the future, as demonstrated by Innoday 2018.
Vineyard Wind, a company owned 50% by Iberdrola (through its subsidiary Avangrid), has received authorisation from the Massachusetts Electric Distribution Companies (EDC) to build an offshore wind farm off the east coast of the United States with an output of 800 MW.
Here at Iberdrola we are celebrating: our Iberdrola - PERSEO International Startup program is ten years old. With a budget of 70 million euros, it aims to create an ecosystem of emerging companies and entrepreneurs by offering our investment support and expertise to numerous startups in Spain, the United Kingdom and United States.
The Iberdrola group's investments in its innovation and digital transformation program will top €1,000 million between 2018 and 2022, and a new Global Information Technology (IT) Security Plan and Cybersecurity.
This innovative project is still in the experimental phase, and uses the Arachnocopter and Power Grids software to slash power line maintenance times, giving more reliable results and applying the data gathered for the early detection of structural faults.

Carbon sinks, a breath of natural oxygen
One term is being used in all the conversations on climate change: mitigation. The aim is to reduce emissions of polluting gases and one of the ways to do this is to increase the presence of carbon sinks on Earth.
WOMEN AND SPORT, A SUCCESSFUL ALLIANCE
Women's interest in sport continues to grow
The number of women who currently play sport or who closely follow sporting events is steadily increasing. This increase is a result of changes that took place in schools in the 1970s.

DRIVERLESS VEHICLES FOR DISABLED
Driverless vehicles: the future of transport for the disabled?
Approximately 10% of the world's population, namely around 650 million people, suffer from some form of disability (UN). This figure will only increase due to demographic growth and the ageing population. The transport industry is working hard to ensure their mobility is not a further limitation.
