Under the auspices of its Green
Mobility Plan, IBERDROLA has already installed over 100
charge points in various Spanish cities and plans to
significantly increase the number of stations it manages in
the coming years.
In the framework of its commitment to developing this kind
of mobility, the company plans to launch new commercial
charging solutions for electric vehicles, adapted to the
various segments in the market: corporate fleets, car parks
and private individuals.
IBERDROLA recently completed the process to qualify as a
charging manager for electric vehicles, having officially
notified the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade of its
plans to carry out this activity.
This new step taken by the company is part of its decisive
commitment to this technology as something that is
necessary in protecting and caring for the environment,
promoting clean energies and sustainable development.
IBERDROLA was the first Spanish company to launch a
comprehensive solution for rolling out this means of
transport among the general public. Its Green Mobility
Solution, which was launched in 2010, provides customers
with the possibility to buy an electric vehicle, a 100%
renewable energy supply and the systems and services
required to charge the vehicle.
The company was also the first in Spain to set up a public
car-sharing scheme, in the province of Guipúzcoa. It has
recently signed an agreement with Pamplona City Council to
carry out a similar project in the city, providing the
general public with a straightforward and affordable hourly
rental system with electric vehicles.
As part of its plan to gradually increase the
electrification of its corporate fleet, IBERDROLA has set
up an electric car-sharing service for its employees. More
than 300 professionals in six Spanish cities use this type
of vehicles for their work-related urban travel, producing
zero emissions and practically no noise.
The company is collaborating with the various Spanish
public administrations to promote the roll-out of this
technology. It has entered into agreements with the
following regions: Castile and León, Valencia, the Basque
Country, Murcia, Madrid, Andalusia, Catalonia and
Extremadura. It is also cooperating with other
administrations at the national, regional, provincial and
IBERDROLA has also entered into collaboration agreements
with the main car manufacturers, such as Peugeot,
Mitsubishi and Opel. It is also a participant in
demonstrative and innovative projects, among which the
highlight is Green eMotion, a four-year initiative set up
by the European Commission to promote electrical mobility;
the Cenit Verde project along with Seat, which focuses on
developing Spanish technology for this mode of transport;
and Merge, which studies the impact of integrating these
cars into the current and future distribution networks.
About charging managers
Recharging managers, a newly created role in the
electricity sector, are agents that consume energy
themselves and are authorised to resell it to their
customers for charging electric vehicles.
This role was defined in the regulations following the
amendment of the Electricity Sector Act of April 2010 and
the subsequent implementing regulations in Royal Decree
647/2011. Pursuant to this legislation, recharging managers
are the only consumers that are authorised to resell
electricity, which in practice allows a user to charge
their vehicle at a public recharging station and pay the
operator in charge of the latter for the energy consumed.
