ACCIONA Energ�a supplies 100% renewable electricity to more than 17,000 SMEs in Spain


  • ACCIONA Energa has launched a programme of authorized distributors for its primary sales channels.

ACCIONA Energa supplied 100% renewable electricity to more than 17,000 small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Spain in 2023.

The company began supplying clean energy to this business segment in 2021, expanding its retail services, which had hitherto focused on large companies and electricity-intensive consumers.

In just two years, ACCIONA Energa has expanded its coverage to more than 23,000 supply points and is now one of the top ten renewable energy suppliers to SMEs in the country.

As part of the consolidation of this business line, ACCIONA Energa has launched a programme of authorized distributors for its primary sales channels. These distributors are accredited as official delegates, guaranteeing them favorable commercial conditions and equipping them with marketing and sales tools to support their activity.

SMEs constitute the largest portion of Spains business landscape and therefore play a key role in the decarbonization of the countrys economy. The supply of more than 1.6TWh of certified clean energy by ACCIONA Energa to small and medium-sized companies over the past year has prevented the emission of more than 215,000 tons of CO₂, equivalent to removing 82,500 from the road or planting 12 million trees.

Since 2021, ACCIONA Energa has been the largest independent renewable energy retailer in Spain and the greenest utility in the world according to the Top 100 Green Utilities ranking prepared annually by Energy Intelligence. The company supplies 100% renewable electricity to large and small consumers, corporate customers and public entities around the world, backed by its more than 13GW installed capacity, contributing to its customers decarbonization and climate change mitigation strategy.

ACCIONA Energ�a signs PPA with Sofidel for the supply of 100% renewable energy to its plant in Bu�uel


  • 90GWh/year: The 10-year supply agreement will allow Sofidel to secure a renewable energy supply with guarantees of origin and at both a competitive and stable price

ACCIONA Energa has signed a 10-year power purchase agreement (PPA) to supply 100% renewable electricity to Sofidel, one of the world leaders in the tissue paper production market for hygienic and domestic use. Through this contract, ACCIONA Energa will supply more than 90GWh/year of renewable electricity from its renewable energy facilities in Spain to Sofidels plant in Buuel (Navarra).

The agreement includes the supply with guarantees of origin accredited by Spains National Commission of Markets and Competition (CNMC) that certifies the 100% renewable origin of the electricity consumed, as well as access to ACCIONA Energas GREENCHAIN traceability application, a platform based on Blockchain technology that allows to track the renewable origin of the energy in real time. Using this tool, Sofidel will know which ACCIONA Energa production plant and which renewable source supplied each MW to its facilities.

The long-term contract will allow Sofidel to guarantee an electricity supply at a competitive and stable price, avoiding the current volatility of the market. In addition, this agreement endorses the sustainability commitment of the paper manufacturer, which has been working for years on different lines to improve the energy efficiency of its processes, as well as to reduce CO2 emissions and the use of plastics in its packaging. Sofidel will avoid the emission of over 12,870 tons of CO2 per year thanks to the use of 100% green energy in its facilities in Spain.

In line with its path toward a low-carbon economy, Sofidel is pursuing a multi-option energy procurement policy, linked to the different legislative, infrastructural and environmental contexts in which it operates, explains Riccardo Balducci, Sofidel Energy & Environment Director. The signing of the PPA with ACCIONA Energa fits into this pattern and represents a decisive step toward achieving our goals.

Javier Montes, Commercial Director from ACCIONA Energa, commented PPAs represent a valuable ally for companies committed to energy transition and emissions reduction. With this agreement, ACCIONA Energa consolidates its partnership with Sofidel and helps support the Group in achieving its sustainability goals.

Sofidels greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets to 2030 have been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) as consistent with reductions required to keep warming to well-below 2C, in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement.

ACCIONA Energ�a signs PPA to supply renewable energy to Stanwell Corporation


MacIntyre wind farm: ACCIONA Energía will supply 150MW of renewable electricity to Queensland’s publicly owned energy generator from the largest wind farm in the southern hemisphere.

ACCIONA Energía has signed an agreement for the supply of 150MW of 100% renewable energy to Queensland’s publicly owned energy generator Stanwell Corporation. The energy will come from ACCIONA Energía’s new project under construction, the MacIntyre Wind Farm, which is part of the MacIntyre Wind Precinct (1,026MW). The Precinct is the largest wind farm in the southern hemisphere, and when completed will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 700,000 homes.

The 15-year agreement will accelerate Queensland’s decarbonisation plans by securing access to affordable, renewable energy for major commercial and industrial businesses. The Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) will come into effect from 2025 to 2040.

The PPA with Stanwell Corporation follows another deal between ACCIONA Energía and state-owned utility CleanCo for 400MW, also from MacIntyre, for ten years. ACCIONA Energía will cover both contracts with the production that corresponds to its 70% stake in the MacIntyre Wind Farm. The remaining 30% is owned by Ark Energy, a subsidiary of Korea Zinc. In addition, CleanCo will own and operate the Karara Wind Farm (108MW) within the MacIntyre Wind Precinct.

With a total investment of around AU$2 billion (€1.2 billion) the MacIntyre Wind Precinct is a key project to decarbonise Queensland’s energy supply. Construction began in May 2022, with the first foundations being poured in September, and is expected to be operational in 2025.
