Futur-e in Litoral

The site of the Litoral coal fired power plant in Almeria may house new industrial projects that will create green jobs in the local area when the plant closes.

The plant

In the context of the energy transition to a decarbonised economy, at Endesa we are promoting the change to an emission-free generation model, a process that includes the progressive closure of coal-fired power plants and the commitment to renewable energy.

To mitigate the social and economic impact of this change of model and facilitate a "just transition" in the local areas of plants that cease their activity, we have launched the Futur-e plans. These plans include a commitment to contribute to the search for new uses for the land of the old plants.

In December 2019 we applied to close the Litoral coal-fired thermal power plant. When the plant has closed, the site it occupies may house new industrial projects that will create jobs in the local area.


Key data

The Litoral plant is located in Carboneras (Almería), 75 km from Almería. The land that we make available for new industrial projects occupies 250,420 m2 of land, available from the first half of 2022, and has access to the electricity, natural gas and water network.

The site is linked to Almería by the A-7 motorway and the 341 national highway. Almería International Airport is 57 km away. The facilities of the port of Carboneras are available for the import or export of goods.

Central de Compostilla

The local area

Carboneras is located in Cabo de Gata, an extremely attractive area for tourists, and has a good transport infrastructure.

In Almería agriculture and tourism stand out as the main economic activities. The province also has a wealth of natural resources, such as white marble quarries, and weather conditions that have acted as a catalyst for sharp growth in renewable energy.

Andalusia is a competitive and attractive region in which to invest and develop business. Located in the south of the Iberian peninsula, it has a privileged strategic location: it is a bridge between Africa and Europe and a meeting point between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean.


Access to public financing

The reindustrialisation projects of municipalities affected by the closure of thermal power plants benefit from aid and incentives in addition to those usually available at the local, regional and European levels.
