We postulate as the energy company of the future, defending the use of clean and renewable energy. Wind energy is key in climate change, being one of the sources that has developed a highest growth over the last decades.
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.
With Avangrid, its subsidiary in the United States, Iberdrola has built these two wind farms, which represent its flagship projects in the country: together they supply electricity to almost 1.5 million homes, which is generated from renewable energy sources.
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.
The remains of a Neolithic timber trackway dating to 2,300 BC was discovered during an archaeological dig carried out prior to laying underground cables to connect the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm with the UK national electricity grid.
