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.
Since 2012, ACCIONA has managed the energy services at OPEL's production plants in Spain. The successful collaboration of OPEL and ACCIONA – and following the recent acquisition by the PSA group – has made it possible to extend the contract to all other plants in Europe, including the main PSA factories in France.
ACCIONA has used engineering to detect inefficiencies in obsolete processes and technologies, in order to reduce electricity consumption while maintaining the existing operating conditions.
- Energy audits and diagnostics to identify improvements.
- Continued field engineering.
- Replacement of equipment and installations with new technologies.
Since the service started, ACCIONA has successfully undertaken over 20 thermal and electrical savings projects, covering a wide range of project types: from lighting to upgrading engines with variators, switching to heat recovery, compressed air, etc.
