SPAIN. ACCIONA Energía reaches agreements to install 1,000 new charging points for electric vehicles in Spain

1,000 new public charging points throughout Spain

ACCIONA Energía announced today that it has reached agreements with different retailers (restaurants, shopping malls and hotels) to install 1,000 new public charging points throughout Spain.

This network of chargers will be operational in 2025 and will be integrated into the company's current offer, adding up to more than 4,000 charging points located on urban and interurban roads.

ACCIONA Energía has numerous agreements for the deployment of charging points with public entities, such as the city councils of Collado-Villalba (Madrid), Campdevánol (Gerona) and Onda (Castellón); and private entities, such as IKEA and Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, to install hundreds of charging points in their shops and shopping centers. In addition, it is installing the largest street electric charging station in Madrid.

The new 1,000 charging points will supply more than 40GWh of 100% renewable energy per year for electric mobility, saving more than 14,000 tCO2 of emissions into the atmosphere.  The capacity of the charging points will range from 22kW to 180kW, with more than 400 super-fast 100-120 kW chargers that will allow a car’s battery to be charged from 20% of its capacity to 80% in 25 minutes.

The chargers will be installed in areas with high traffic density and close to additional services such as restaurants, shopping centers and hotels, enabling ACCIONA Energía to provide a more complete and convenient experience for its customers.

The company thus continues to promote the decarbonization of transport and electric mobility, and aims to deploy a public access network of 25,000 points by 2030, based on its own network and that managed for third parties.
