Effective energy marketing has given ACCIONA footholds throughout the electricity sector value chain.

From railways to airports, desalination plants and financial services entities, top companies are convinced by a new and promising business area created by ACCIONA which completes its presence in the energy sector value chain.Large corporations from many different sectors have signed contracts with ACCIONA for energy supplied 100% from renewable sources.

ACCIONA supplies energy sourced 100% from renewable energies, which the Spanish Energy Commission has certifi ed Level 'A' for its zero CO2 emissions

Global leader in development, construction and operation of renewable energy installations, ACCIONA has also become an important distributor in the Spanish electricity market, with planned sales to final clients of some 1,000 Gigawatt-hours (GWh) this year, a figure which will increase significantly during the years to come.

The 100% renewable origin character, certified by the Spanish National Energy Commission (CNE), is a differential factor in our product, especially attractive to a growing number of clients aware that reducing their ecological footprints will also have a positive impact on their reputations among consumers.

Much more than electricity

The contribution of ACCIONA is not limited to supplying electricity. It also includes a wide range of additional services aimed at optimizing the consumption of our clients, monitoring this and detecting possible opportunities for improvement, proposing savings and efficiency measures, and when possible managing these to reduce costs.

ACCIONA offers additional services to optimize the amounts clients consume

With its presence in the energy marketing business, ACCIONA is making the final step towards becoming a vertically-integrated electricity company, obtaining better brand visibility with clients, covering price risk in the Company's generation portfolio, and thus contributing revenue stability, switching away from electricity market fluctuations, and generating synergies with other Group activities to contribute new business opportunities.
