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 has consolidated its position as one of the leading energy companies in the United States, where it is listed on the New York Stock Exchange as AVANGRID, Inc., a sustainable company with assets of US$32 billion, 6,500 employees and operations in 24 states of the country.
East Anglia ONE (United Kingdom) and Wikinger (Germany) have been selected to analyse the potential of the Romeo project. This initiative, backed by the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 Programme, intends to reduce operating costs and maintain offshore wind farms to achieve maximum efficiency and drive renewable energy production.
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.
Have you ever wondered how a wind turbine tower can support so much weight? Or why they are all orientated in the same direction? This is the nature of wind turbines, the giants of renewable energy.
