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.
Lilyvale will have a capacity of 118 MW, and has a peak power of 125 MW. This project is being executed under the guidelines of the EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) or turnkey model, for the client FRV (Fotowatio Renewable Ventures).
The Lilyvale plant covers an area of approximately 396 hectares and consists of 380,000 photovoltaic modules with single-axis trackers (mechanical devices capable of orienting the panels) and 25 transformation centres for the generation of clean and renewable energy. As soon as the plant is operational, 175,000 tons of CO2 per year will be avoided and 45,000 homes can be supplied.
