The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao makes progress in sustainability with electric recharging points installed by us
- These are four electric recharging infrastructures, which are located in the vicinity of the Museum.
- Users of these facilities will charge the batteries of their electric cars, up to eight simultaneously, with 100% green energy, from renewable generation sources, with a guarantee of origin certificate (GoO).
- In addition, the charging points are located in the Iberdrola Public Charging App, from which you can geolocate the charger, check its operation in real time and book and pay from your mobile phone.
The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao has set up four new electric charging points in the vicinity of the Bilbao Museum with Iberdrola España. The electric infrastructures are located in the vicinity of the art gallery. They are double installations that will allow 8 vehicles to be charged simultaneously. In this way, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is making progress in its commitment to sustainability, favoring the use of this type of transport and avoiding CO2 emissions.
This initiative is a further step forward in the Museum's commitment to environmental sustainability in collaboration with Iberdrola España to meet the 2030 objectives.External link, opens in new window.

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao has implemented other initiatives this year, such as the use of temperature and humidity control parameters adapted to external conditions, resulting in considerable energy savings; the reuse of museum elements and their sharing with other institutions; the progressive replacement of some exhibition materials with more environmentally friendly products; and the adoption of new uniforms made by Ecoalf from recycled materials, which have been worn by the Museum's visitor service staff and security personnel since April.
Electric mobility and green recovery
Iberdrola España 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 3,800 points -of which 1,300, around 35% have 50 kW of power or more- and more than 2,000 in various stages of processing. In addition to the public charging points, if we add the residential ones and those in car parks and companies, we can talk about more than 30,000 charging points. Iberdrola will continue to contribute to the decarbonisation of the economy through mobility, with the goal of reaching 110,000 points by 2025.
