Endesa will maintain its thermal power plants within the Transitional National Plan

Published on Monday, 28 September 2015

The company waives the right to the limited service life exemption for these thermal plants, which would entail restricting operations thereof during the period commencing on 1st January 2016 to 31st December 2023, to 17,500 hours.

This has enabled the company to prevent these plants from having to adhere to the more restrictive conditions by opting for a more moderate position, which does not compromise the future of these facilities and which in no way represents a decision concerning the closure of these.

Endesa wants to ensure that these plants continue to operate and is awaiting a clarification of the economic and regulatory circumstances that will enable a decision to be made with regard to the essential environmental investments required in order to comply with the limits established by the Directive on Industrial Emissions. These investments, if applicable, would need to be ready before 30th June 2020.
