• Title: The ACCIONA team leads the overall standings, with 139 points and only three points above its direct rival, as everything is yet to be decided
  • Copper: The Copper X Prix will be held inside an immense copper mine in the middle of a transition towards a more sustainable model

The ACCIONA | SAINZ XE Team heads into the final round of the 2023 Extreme E Championship, the Copper X Prix in Chile (December 2nd–3rd), as the leader. 

The ACCIONA team leads the overall standings with 139 points, after two victories in Saudi Arabia (Neom) and Italy (Sardinia), as well as three second places in the same venues. However, the championship is greatly competitive, as up to four other teams have a mathematical chance of winning the final title in Chile.

The race location will be a copper extraction mine in Calama, in the Atacama Desert. It is a large facility that remains fully operational.

The location, surrounded by three of the largest copper mines in the world, aims to raise awareness among spectators of the need to apply innovation to reduce the environmental impact of this industry, which is key to electric mobility.

ACCIONA will thus end its third Extreme E season as one of the teams that has participated from the start of the original edition of this championship, which combines sustainable mobility, gender equality and the fight against climate change. With this initiative, the company contributes to raising awareness of the climate emergency and the need for a decarbonized global economy through mass sport events.



As in each of the series, the ten teams in the competition have participated in activities together with local organizations to support their efforts to conserve endangered ecosystems. On this occasion, Extreme E joined forces with two associations: the Force For Nature global network and the Chilean National Forestry Corporation (CONAF).

The Extreme E drivers visited a local school to talk to children and share their concerns about the natural environment, before traveling to Laguna Chaxa to learn about a program to protect flamingos, whose population is slowly dwindling. They also visited a local lookout point in San Pedro de Atacama to identify species and study their migratory patterns.



ACCIONA’s presence in Chile dates back to 1993 and it is one of the company's strategic markets in South America. ACCIONA Energía has close to 1,000MW of renewables in operation contributing to the Chilean energy mix. Throughout these three decades, its Infrastructure division has developed various water, transport and health sector projects, especially the latter.

ACCIONA was recently awarded the design, construction and operation of the La Serena Hospital. This joins other major ACCIONA projects in the country's hospital sector, such as the Marga-Marga Hospital (a pioneering project in promoting gender equality), the Exequiel González Cortés Hospital and the Philippe Pinel Psychiatric Hospital.
