Iberdrola plans to install electric vehicle charging stations in the main motorways and traffic corridors of Spain, as well as in the public access spaces of the main cities. The plan, which includes the start-up of at least one rapid recharge station every 50 km, will allow travel throughout the country with autonomy.

The Iberdrola group Smart Mobility Plan signals a significant step forward in developing and deploying electric vehicles in Spain.

A PLAN SUPPORTED BY PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS

Electric vehicle users who recharge at Iberdrola stations do so with 100 % clean energy, backed by Guarantee of Renewable Origin (GoO) certification. They can also rely on the green certification from G-Advisory, which has given its second party opinion.

In September 2020, it signed a green loan with the Official Credit Institute (ICO) for 59.4 million to install 2,500 charging points on public roads in Spain and Portugal.

Iberdrola's mobility electrification plan also has the support of the European Commission, through a €13 m grant, awarded to the company within the framework of the CEF Transport Blending Facilities invitation from the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA), which will contribute towards financing the installation of 2,339 rapid, super-rapid and ultra-rapid charging stations in Spain and Portugal in the run up to 2023. These new charging stations will be sited on high-volume traffic routes in both countries and at points close to the trans-European transport networks (TEN-T).

MORE THAN 50 INFRASTRUCTURE DEPLOYMENT AGREEMENTS

The implementation of Iberdrola's Smart Mobility Plan aims to keep up with the pace of electric vehicle deployment in Spain. As a result, more than 50 infrastructure deployment agreements have been signed with the main mobility players, from administrations to institutions, companies, service stations, dealers and electric vehicle manufacturers.

One example is the agreement signed with the National Association of Vehicle Dealers (Ganvam) External link, opens in new window., which has become Iberdrola's technology partner for the development of innovation projects related to electric and connected vehicles. The energy company is also making its comprehensive Smart Mobility External link, opens in new window. solution available to the Ganvam network.

The company has also reached a collaboration agreement with the Valencian Federation of Municipalities and Provinces External link, opens in new window. to jointly carry out activities to promote the provision of energy solutions, such as self-consumption and electric mobility. In this same community, it signed an agreement with the Association of Electrical, Telecommunications and Renewable Energy Installers of Valencia External link, opens in new window. (ASELEC) establishing the application of preferential conditions to over 800 companies that form part of the association for the development and implementation of charging points for electric vehicles.

In Valladolid, for the next ten years it will manage the city's electric vehicle charging infrastructure External link, opens in new window..

It has also reached an agreement with the Madrid Municipal Transport Company (EMT), through which it will advise and facilitate the electrification of the city bus network and will collaborate in the study of alternatives for electricity supply to the EMT facilities, from which urban buses operate.

In addition, the roll-out has begun of the biggest network of rapid charging stations for electric vehicles on the major highways and traffic corridors in Spain. Also, a super-rapid charging corridor that joins the centre and the south of the peninsula has opened, and it is installing charging points at various points within Spain, in locations in the Comunidad Valenciana (for example in Ondara External link, opens in new window., Benidorm External link, opens in new window. and Llíria External link, opens in new window.), País Vasco (Irún External link, opens in new window., San Sebastián External link, opens in new window. and Bilbao External link, opens in new window.), Castilla y León (Burgos External link, opens in new window., Salamanca External link, opens in new window. and Valladolid External link, opens in new window.), Murcia External link, opens in new window., etc.

It has also reached agreements with almost all electric vehicle manufacturers, associations and dealerships —Mazda, Mercedes Benz, Aevab External link, opens in new window., Mundomóvil External link, opens in new window., Grupo Marcos Automoción External link, opens in new window., AMDA External link, opens in new window., Grupo Huertas External link, opens in new window., Montalt—; it is rolling out an ambitious points plan for fast and super-fast vehicle charging at service stations operated by brands like Complejo Leo — in one of the main corridors of the Peninsula, linking the centre and the south —, AVIA, Wallbox, Ballenoil and Valcarcel; collaborating with sustainable mobility plans with companies like Ikea, McDonald's, Telefonica, Bodegas Matarromera, REE, Auchán, etc., and investing in electric mobility infrastructures in shopping centres, restaurant chains and hotels.
