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.
Iberdrola group has opened new platforms for growth in order to position itself in markets with a big renewable future and has strengthened its presence in the main countries in which it operates, adding medium and long-term projects to its portfolio. It has done this through eight corporate operations, undertaken since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, in line with its strategy to consolidate itself as the world's biggest renewables company.
Iberdrola group becomes one of the leaders in the Australian renewable energy market after acquiring Infigen Energy. Thanks to this operation, the company now operates more than 800 MW of solar, wind and storage batteries in the country and has a significant portfolio of projects, of which 453 MW are under construction and more than 1,000 are in various stages of development.
Iberdrola presents 'United by the wind', a documentary that shows the most social aspect of the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm. More than twenty workers, both from the company and from several of its suppliers, tell us about the importance of teamwork, companionship and training to set up an infrastructure of this magnitude and complexity, as well as the driving effect that this development is having on local economies.
Excavation works for the burying of the cable to connect the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm with the British National Grid have exposed relics from the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, and the Roman, Anglo-Saxon and even Medieval eras. Most interesting without doubt are the remains of a Neolithic roadway consisting of a series of wooden planks, and dating back to 2,300 B.C.
Iberdrola group has completely integrated the conservation of the biological diversity of ecosystems into its strategy. An exhaustive environmental plan is therefore drawn up for all projects for new facilities in order to minimize their impact on flora and fauna. This is reflected in the 2018-2019 Biodiversity Report, which lists the specific actions taken by the company to protect and conserve biodiversity at some of its flagship projects.
