Acciona will double its electricity supply to Metro de Madrid in 2015

0

Next year Acciona Energía will double its supplies of electricity to Metro de Madrid after being awarded 46% of the total energy put out to tender by the city’s transport company for 2015, for a sum of 19.8 million euros. Through its subsidiary Acciona Green Energy Developments, the company thus continues to consolidate its business of marketing of electric power to large customers. Last year this activity represented revenues of 367 million euros. The contract signed with Metro de Madrid covers the supply of 308 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of renewable electricity to traction points and other installations of the company that operates suburban transport in Spain’s capital in 2015.

This doubles the level of power supplied under the previous contract, and substantially increases ACCIONA’s percentage of the total put out to tender by Metro from 21% to 46%.

the business booster

ACCIONA Energía only supplies energy of renewable origin that is 100% emission-free and certified as such by the Spanish Markets and Competition Commission. In 2013 it supplied 5,110 GWh, 55% more than the previous year.

The marketing of energy to large customers is a business area in which ACCIONA – a world leader in the development, construction, exploitation and operation of renewable energy facilities – rounds off its presence throughout the value chain in the energy sector.

ACCIONA Green Energy Developments’ customer portfolio includes large industrial and service companies such as Aena, Seat-Volkswagen, Canal de Isabel II Gestión and Acuamed.
