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.
Located in the province of Peravia, the Calabaza I photovoltaic plant is ACCIONA Energía's first project in the Dominican Republic and a facility capable of transforming sunlight into clean energy for more than 54,000 homes.
With 58 MWp of installed capacity totaling more than 106,000 photovoltaic modules, the new facility will prevent the emission of some 81,000 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere per year.
In line with ACCIONA Energía's philosophy of generating a positive impact on the environment in which it develops its projects, the construction of the plant was carried out with 43% local labor.
