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 Waubra Wind Farm consists of 128 wind turbines, generating 192 MW of clean energy. Waubra Wind Farm used to be ACCIONA’s largest wind farm in Australia, operational since 2009. Located in the south-east of the country in the State of Victoria, it produces the energy equivalent to the demand from around 138,000 homes. The wind farm is constructed on cleared, undulating land, which is a mix of dairy, cattle, sheep and crop farming country. The location was selected due to the high exposure to consistent high winds and close proximity to the transmission network.
- ACCIONA's second wind farm in Australia and first in Victoria
- Provides approximately 8 ongoing full-time positions on site, plus seasonal contracting opportunities
- ACCIONA has created a direct total community investment of approximately $10 million since the project became operational
