ACCIONA has been awarded the contract to supply high-voltage electricity to Corporación Radio Televisión Española from April 2019 to March 2021, when the company expects to supply the public body around 206 gigawatt-hours overall, with an invoice ceiling of 22.8 million euros.
Under the contract, awarded in an electronic tender, ACCIONA will supply all the high-voltage buildings and facilities of the group in Spain with 100% renewable energy, certified by the National Markets and Competition Commission.
The planned volume of energy supplied will avoid the emission of around 131,000 tonnes of CO2 to the atmosphere from thermal power stations, according to the Spanish electric power generation mix
ACCIONA Energía was previously awarded a contract for the supply of high-voltage electricity to RTVE for the period between April 2018 and March 2019.
“It is a great satisfaction for us to renew our status as supplier of renewable energy to such a major client as Spanish Radio & TV. As well as showcasing the competitiveness of our product, this will undoubtedly have a positive effect on the corporate sector in terms of the advantages of committing to renewable energies", says Santiago Gómez Ramos, ACCIONA Energy Management Director.
ACCIONA Energía, the first retailer of exclusively renewable energy in Spain, has more than five hundred companies and institutions from a wide range of sectors in its client portfolio - either present or past - such as Telefónica, Unilever, Adif, Navantia, RTVE, Agrolimen, Freixenet, Bimbo, Merck and Basf. The company expects to pass the figure of 6 terawatts-hour (TWh) contracted with large clients in the Iberian Peninsula market.
Outside the Peninsula, the company is also an active marketer of renewable energy to corporate clients, signing long-term PPAs (power purchase agreements) with leading companies such as Google, Falabella, LATAM Airlines and ENAMI (all in Chile) and Cemex (Mexico).
