Decarbonisation

We promote the transition to an emission-free energy model

Decarbonisation of the energy mix and commitment to energy from renewable sources are the two pillars of our contribution to the fight against climate change.

Aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals

SDG 13: Climate action
SDG 7: Affordable clean energy

At Endesa, we are well aware of the challenge that our planet faces to stop global warming. For this reason, our business strategy is aligned with the global commitments and objectives that are currently being proposed in the fight against climate change.

Currently almost 60% of our net production is emission-free and we already have 7,452 MW of renewable installed capacity. Through our renewable energy subsidiary, Enel Green Power España (EGPE), in December 2019 we successfully passed the milestone represented by the connection to the grid of the total new capacity awarded to us by the Government in the auctions held in 2017, amounting to 879 MW (540 MW wind and 339 MW solar) through 25 projects in Aragon, Andalusia, Extremadura, Galicia, Castilla León and Murcia:

Emission-free generation
59,2%
Net zero-emissions production
Renewable power
7.452
MW of renewable installed capacity

These are the lines on which we are working to promote the transformation of the energy model:

  • The decarbonisation of our energy mix by 2050 through an ambitious progressive emission reduction plan in the coming years.
  • The 38% increase in installed capacity in renewables in 2022 compared with 2019.
  • A smooth transition to decarbonisation, guaranteeing security of supply. In 2022 coal activity will have been reduced by 99% and by 2030 this activity will have ceased entirely.
  • The promotion of electric mobility as one of the main avenues for the fight against climate change. The objective of our Electric Mobility Plan is to have 36,000 charging points installed for public and private use in 2022.
  • It is a model for developing renewable facilities that incorporates social value creation actions for the surroundings of the wind farms and solar parks, what is known as the CSV model, prioritising the incorporation of local labour, as well as the development of projects of benefit to the community.

At the same time as we are working to promote the change in the energy model, we are committed to contributing to ensure that the transition to an emission-free economy is fair, and we are working to mitigate the economic, environmental and social consequences that these changes may have. That is the objective of the Futur-e plans that we are promoting in the vicinities of the thermal power plants that are in the closing down phase.

In December 2019 the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP25), was held in Madrid, under the presidency of Chile, and we were one of the main sponsors. The central theme of the summit was to address the need to increase the mitigation-related ambition to limit the increase in global temperature to less than 1.5°C, which means achieving climate neutrality by 2050, a goal to which we are contributing through our decarbonisation strategy.
