EAST ANGLIA ONE, Saint Brieu, Támega..., Iberdrola works on different projects worldwide which have become milestones in our company, given their relevance and their innovative approach.
Wind energy is produced by transforming the movement of air currents into electrical energy. To harness the wind produced on land, enormous wind farms are built capable of extracting maximum power from this clean, renewable resource. Let us explain how it works.
The Iberdrola group is firmly committed to offshore wind power as one of the keys to the company's future and we will invest approximately 9 billion euros between 2018 and 2022. At present, the company is focusing its wind power business on the UK, France, Germany and the US, with the objective of reaching a total capacity of 3 GW by 2023.
Photovoltaic solar energy is obtained by converting sunlight into electricity using a technology based on the photoelectric effect. It is a type of renewable, inexhaustible and non-polluting energy that can be produced in installations ranging from small generators for self-consumption to large photovoltaic plants. Discover how these huge solar fields work.
The Tâmega hydroelectric complex will be capable of guaranteeing the supply of energy for the almost three million inhabitants of Oporto and it will increase in a 6% the total electrical power installed in the country. Involved by three power plants, this project involves an investment of more than 1.5 billion euros.
Offshore wind energy is the clean and renewable energy obtained by taking advantage of the force of the wind that is produced on the high seas, where it reaches a higher and more constant speed than on land due to the absence of barriers. In order to make the most of this resource, mega-structures are installed that are seated on the seabed and equipped with the latest technical innovations. Discover what these real sea giants are like and how they work.
