Two photovoltaic plants in Odessa
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.
ACCIONA Energía has installed two photovoltaic plants in the Odessa region, southwest of Ukraine, with a combined capacity of 42 MWp (nominal 32 MW), after acquiring 75% of both projects from the UDPR company, which holds a 25% stake . Between both facilities they will generate clean energy equivalent to the consumption of some 23,000 homes.
Gudzovka is the largest of these plants, with a peak capacity of 24 MWp (19 MW rated), while the Arcyz plant has 18 MWp (13.5 MW rated). Both feature polycrystalline silicon photovoltaic modules on fixed structures.
The power generated by the plants is sent to the national grid and sold to the Ukrainian utility company Energorynok State Enterprise under a PPA (power purchase agreement) for the period until 31 December 2029. After that date, ACCIONA will operate under the price system established in the Ukrainian market
Through this operation, ACCIONA has strengthened its position in the renewables sector in Ukraine, where it owns and operated the 57.2-MWp (44 MW rated) Dymerka 2-3-4 photovoltaic complex in the region of Kiev. This complex is 100% owned by ACCIONA.
