We reaffirm our commitment to sustainable mobility at the Hybrid and Electric Car Show in Valladolid

  • The company has staged its commitment to more environmentally friendly transport habits
  • It leads the public recharging infrastructure with more than 3,500 points, which have renewable energy to decarbonise transport from start to finish. In Castile and León it has more than 320 public charging points in service in all provinces

Iberdrola has chosen the city of Valladolid to demonstrate its commitment to sustainable mobility at the Hybrid and Electric Car Show being held until Sunday at the Feria de Valladolid, once again ratifying its commitment to electric mobility and more environmentally-friendly transport habits.

Iberdrola is aware of the need to promote electromobility in Spain through coordinated and effective action with the main agents involved. In this regard, the company has already completed more than 60 infrastructure deployment agreements with administrations, institutions, companies, service stations, dealers and electric vehicle manufacturers.

The company leads the public charging infrastructure with more than 3,500 points - of which 1,200, around 35% have 50 kW of power or more - and 2,300 in various stages of processing. In addition to public charging points, if we add residential charging points and those in car parks and companies, we can talk about 30,000 charging points. Iberdrola will continue to contribute to the decarbonisation of the economy through mobility with the aim of reaching 110,000 points by 2025.

Iberdrola is thus making progress in its plan to deploy sustainable mobility Enlace externo, se abre en ventana nueva. infrastructure in Castile and León, where it has more than 320 public charging stations in service in all provinces. 

In addition, the company is committed to the electrification of passenger transport and proof of this is that today more than 380 buses can be recharged daily thanks to agreements reached with local councils, such as the Valladolid city council, and operators in different parts of Spain.

Key player in the decarbonisation of urban passenger transport

Iberdrola presented in the city of Valladolid a few weeks ago the electrification project that provides the municipal public transport company's facilities in Bronce Street, in the Argales industrial estate, with the infrastructure necessary to charge up to 11 electric buses simultaneously at night. The installation can deliver up to 1.1 megawatts (MW) distributed by the 11 Jema Energy recharging equipment of 100 kilowatts (kW) each. 

This is the first infrastructure of its kind to be implemented by the company in Spain, making it a key player in the decarbonisation of urban passenger transport in the city of Valladolid.

These vehicles, with their modern and innovative design, will recharge their batteries with 100% green energy supplied by Iberdrola from renewable sources.

This pioneering urban bus electrification project in Spain has been carried out thanks to the Moves Singulares II Programme, a programme of incentives for unique projects in electric mobility within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan to promote the transformation of the economy towards a more sustainable, resilient, inclusive and competitive model, as well as to intensify activity and create new public-private partnerships.

In a second phase, this installation will be extended with an innovative wireless charging infrastructure using an inverted pantograph, placing AUVASA at the forefront of this type of installation.

Iberdrola's delegate in Castile and León, Miguel Calvo, stressed that "we continue to make progress in decarbonisation and energy self-sufficiency through the electrification of two key sectors of our economy, transport and industry. The scale of this challenge requires public-private partnerships, which have the technology and knowledge necessary to accelerate the well-being of citizens and contribute to the development of more sustainable cities".
