  • Endesa has invested 126 million euros in the construction of these new renewable facilities, which employed more than 1,000 people during their construction, through its renewable-energy subsidiary, Enel Green Power España.

Endesa has commissioned four new solar plants in Badajoz, through its renewable-energy subsidiary Enel Green Power España (EGPE). These plants are Tierra de Badajoz in the municipality of Badajoz, and Agrippa, Gémina and Alaudae in the municipality of Lobón in Badajoz.

The company has invested 126 million euros in building these facilities, applying the latest technology and prioritising local workers when building the facilities. More than 1,000 people have been involved in the construction of these projects, with an average of 30% of local workers through the Shared Value Creation plan that EGPE, Endesa's renewable subsidiary, applies when commissioning its facilities.

To foster this local recruitment, Endesa provided training courses for more than 130 unemployed people in the area, prioritising them when building the new facilities.

"The involvement of local people was an important factor for us in building our facilities, with high standards of safety, environmental protection and quality to ensure our plants operate as effectively as possible and seeking to integrate them into the environment," said Luca Capuozzo, head of engineering and construction at Enel Green Power España.

The 48.8 MW Tierra de Badajoz solar plant will have annual production of 102 GWh, avoiding 83,848 tonnes of atmospheric emissions of CO2 per year. The total capacity of the Agrippa, Gémina and Alaudae solar plants is 136 MW, with annual production of 294 GWh, avoiding 240,939 tonnes of atmospheric emissions of CO2 per year.

The construction of these projects has been based on Enel Green Power España's "Sustainable Construction Site" model, using the latest technology and applying innovative systems to reduce the environmental impact of the development work. This includes the E-House used to house the electronic equipment for the solar plants commissioned in Lobón. This prefabricated facility reduced the use of materials by 60%. Photovoltaic solar panels were used in all the facilities to provide some of the energy needs during the work, and water tanks were used to save water. Defibrillators were also installed. All of these items will be donated to the local community.
