Our commitment to decarbonisation and the development of renewable energy goes hand-in-hand with a commitment to the people and biodiversity that coexist with our plants. That is why our projects are accompanied by CSV plans (creating shared value), which involve the promotion of training, employment and sustainability in local communities.
We also have a Biodiversity Conservation Plan that enables us to integrate biodiversity protection and the improvement and maintenance of natural capital through the development of our company strategy.
How are we putting all this into practice? Through initiatives adapted to local needs and the environment for each renewable energy project.
Agrovoltaics is a blend of solar energy and agriculture. Although it may seem incredible, different fruits, vegetables, tubers and even aromatic plants, are able to coexist perfectly with photovoltaic plants. That is why the main objective of this project is to use part of the land where our photovoltaic plants are located for agricultural use, thus helping to preserve biodiversity and create shared value.
According to Roberto Andrés, Endesa's Head of Environmental Innovation, "our work focusses on the recovery of soil and protected species, which are vital for the maintenance of these areas, and the improvement of crops".
