Iberdrola presents its alliance with Enlit for the energy transition

The collaboration will place the city of Bilbao at the centre of the energy transition dialogue.

Iberdrola has entered into a strategic alliance with Enlit, a media and events company at the forefront of the energy transition in Europe.

Thanks to this partnership, the exciting city of Bilbao will host the Enlit Europe conference and exhibition in 2025. The event will take place at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre.

Before then, the two companies will work together to highlight the challenges and opportunities facing the European energy sector.

This alliance will kick off this year in Paris during Enlit Europe, where Elena León Muñoz, General Director of Networks of the Iberdrola Group, and Nicolas Arcauz, Director of Smart Grids of Iberdrola Spain, will be among the high-level speakers.

Asís Canales Abaitua, Iberdrola's Director of People and Services, said that the collaboration "aligns perfectly with our mission to promote sustainable energy solutions and contribute to the global energy transition. We are very pleased to bring Enlit Europe to Bilbao in 2025".

Paddy Young, Director of Enlit, hailed the partnership with Iberdrola as "a significant milestone that demonstrates the trust and credibility that our brand has garnered in a short period of time".

This year's Enlit Europe in Paris will be the third iteration of the event, which next year will travel to Milan before coming to Bilbao in 2025. Enlit also manages three media brands: Power Engineering International, Smart Energy International and Enlit World. 

For Young, Bilbao "will provide an exceptional setting for this event, and Iberdrola's participation will undoubtedly enhance the experience for exhibitors and visitors alike", adding that the collaboration will leverage Iberdrola's extensive experience and network in the energy sector to reinforce Enlit's commitment to delivering high quality content programmes in sync with the evolving energy market.

Traditionally, there has always been a very fruitful public-private partnership in the Basque Country. Regional authorities, including the Basque Government, the Provincial Council of Bizkaia and the Bilbao City Council are collaborating and committed to the success of this comprehensive energy event.

Canales added that "Iberdrola is dedicated to clean energy and sustainable grid solutions and is looking forward to joining forces with Enlit to shape the future of energy dialogue and innovation. Iberdrola's Global Smart Grids Innovation Hub, located in Bilbao, has thus established itself as a global centre of innovation and knowledge in smart grids to help address the challenges of the energy transition. The centre acts as a driving force for innovation, combining Iberdrola's technological capacity with that of more than 80 collaborating entities and companies".
