A New Energy Giant and Its Boss Set Sky-High Goals

In a piece published Wednesday 28 April, The New York Times speaks about Chairman Ignacio Galán’s forward-looking vision on the opportunities for renewable energy in the US. Here are some of the highlights:

  • For the past 20 years, Ignacio Galán has been on a mission to transform the electricity industry, moving from thermal power generation to renewable energy.
  • Iberdrola is well positioned to benefit from the opportunities created by the energy transition facing major economies, as both the United States and EU tighten regulations and provide incentives to encourage investment in green energy.
  • “Galán without doubt was the chief executive of a big utility that first understood that the energy transition from fossil fuels to clean energy was unavoidable and that it would happen fast,” said Miguel Arias Cañete, a Spanish politician and former European commissioner for energy and climate action.
