flagship renewable energy project
CLEAN, NON-POLLUTING ENERGY
Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
1 in 8 people still do not have access to electricity. In order to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all, it is necessary to increase the use of renewable energy from 25 % today to 38 % in 2025.
ACCIONA is positioning itself as a key player in addressing the growth in energy demand while curbing the progress of global warming and promoting the transition to a decarbonized energy model.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
The generation and use of energy is responsible for 74 % of total greenhouse gas emissions in the world. This activity is the largest contributor to global warming. Investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency and other low carbon technologies will continue to be essential to meet the new needs of humanity and to minimise their negative impact on the environment.
ACCIONA considers the fight against climate change and its related effects to be a strategic priority. The Company is working to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in order to contribute to the progress of society and respond to the main challenges of sustainable development in the areas of infrastructure, water and energy, leading the transition to a low-carbon economy.
The Aldoga Solar Farm, ACCIONA Energía’s proposed 445MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) facility, is to be located approximately 20 km west of Gladstone on the Central Queensland coast.
The Aldoga Solar Farm will deliver a flagship renewable energy project on Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) land as part of the Queensland Government’s 'Advancing our cities and regions strategy’, which aims to renew and repurpose underutilised state land to generate jobs and drive economic growth.
The substantial scale of this project will also contribute significantly to the Queensland Government’s target of achieving 50 per cent renewable energy by 2030 and 70% by 2032.
ACCIONA Energía has signed an agreement to lease the land from EDQ for the purposes of constructing and operating the Aldoga Solar Farm for a period of 30 years.
