Acciona will supply Aena (the Spanish airport operator) with 345 GWh (345 million kilowatt-hours) of electricity for one year to cover the needs of all the airports in its network except Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas, Barcelona-El Prat and the Balearic Islands locations.
The contract multiplies by 2.3 the amount of power Acciona currently supplies to Aena and represents estimated revenues of € 23.5 million. As a result, from October 1st 2014 Acciona will provide electricity generated from renewable sources to 45 Aena supply points in airports on the Spanish mainland – among them Málaga-Costa del Sol, Bilbao, Valencia, Asturias and Santiago de Compostela – and also to all Canary Islands airports. This is the third consecutive contract Acciona has signed with Aena, through its subsidiary company Acciona Green Energy Developments. The last one, also for one year, covered the supply of 149 GWh. As in all the contracts signed by the company, 100% of the energy supplied will come from renewable sources, with certification of origin issued by the national Competition Commission.
