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.
The Renewable Energy Operation Centre (CORE) of Iberdrola group's Brazilian subsidiary Neoenergia controls and operates 17 wind farms and six renewable generation substations in real time. Roger Mendonça, from the Neoenergia Operational Relations department, presents the company's most advanced CORE in the world to date.
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.
The Remote Control Centre (RCC) is Iberdrola group's renewable energy operation centre (CORE) in the United Kingdom. From there its subsidiary, ScottishPower Renewables, controls and operates 37 onshore and 2 offshore wind farms in real time, with the aim of ensuring that they are operational over 97% of the time. Its manager, Mark Gailey, shows us around the centre.
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.
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.
