Clean energy and sustainable construction

We are committed to investing in projects that are based on renewable energies

Our strategic plan contains a commitment to achieving a 100% carbon-free economy by 2050, in line with the European targets.

At Endesa, we are committed to investing in projects based on renewable energies that ensure the supply of energy and protection of the environment.

In our strategic plan, we reflect on the commitment to achieve a 100% decarbonised economy by 2050, in line with our European objectives to fight against climate change. Producing clean energy based on renewable sources represents only the first step in our method of advancing toward a new sustainable model.

 

Enel Green Power Spain

The development and management of renewable energies that we carry out in our country is done through Enel Green Power Spain (EGPE), Endesa's renewable energies affiliate. This company is exclusively dedicated to producing electricity generated based on renewable sources and currently has the consolidated installed capacity of 1,675 MW.

EGPE is constructing solar facilities with 339 MW of power and wind facilities with 540 MW of power that were awarded to the company in the last two tenders in Spain, which entails a total investment of more than 800 million euros by 2020. Once the solar and wind projects with an overall power of 879 MW are finished, the power of the current EGPE portfolio will increase by 52.4%.

 

A sustainable model

In our projects, we always work according to the three aspects of sustainability:

  • Environment: we are concerned with protecting the environment in the various stages of the process of development, construction and management of plants, applying the principles of the circular economy to reduce the impact on the environment.
  • Society: we are listening to our stakeholders in order to emphasize what it is relevant for both parties, and to anticipate the needs and possible conflicts with long-term foresight.
  • Management: The management model that we are striving for is inspired by the best international practises and implies adopting tools aligned with the requirements of the main sustainability indexes.

Create shared value for our local communities

Enel Green Power España, Endesa’s renewable division, has an ambitious plan to build new renewable power plants in Spain. More than 20 wind and solar parks will be commissioned in 2019.

Solar
339
MW of photovoltaic solar power (power awarded by auction; and projects under construction)
More than
200

More than
800
football pitches in area will be covered by photovoltaic equipment
Reduce CO₂
1,67
million tons of CO₂ avoided per year, equivalent to the emissions of 387,000 diesel cars on the road each year
Renewable Energy
2,5

Actions in the municipalities around farms

All these projects have SVC plans, which contain social, environmental and energy efficiency measures for the surrounding municipalities. By taking a Shared Value Creation (SVC) approach, Enel Green Power España makes the priorities and needs of the local communities a part of its business strategy.

More renewable generation initiatives

In parallel with investment in the infrastructures necessary for generating renewable energy, at Endesa, we are committed to projects that contribute to making the model of sustainable innovation that we are aspiring to reach in the future, reality.

One of these projects is El Hierro 100% Renewable, a plan in which Endesa, El Hierro Chapter, the Technological Institute of the Canary Islands, and the Government of the Canary Islands collaborate to supply sustainable energy (combined wind and hydrological) to the total demand on the island, considering the Reserve of the Biosphere and Geopark and where around 10,600 residents live. The 20-year objective is to reduce 6,000 tonnes of diesel and 19,000 tonnes of CO2.

We also have agreements with institutions, companies and local organisations to provide 100% renewable energy for their activity. This is the case for the Town Hall of Madrid and its Autonomous Bodies and the Gran Canaria Chapter, which has had energy supplied from renewable sources in its municipal buildings and equipment since 2017.
