    Growing in wind power and solar PV

    ACCIONA Energía has installed in Chile the largest photovoltaic plant in Latin America. With 246 MWp and located in Atacama, El Romero Solar entered service in late 2016. The company also owns an operational wind farm and has a large portfolio of wind and solar projects. In 2014, the National Energy Commission (CNE) awarded the company (following a public tender) the supply of 600 GWh of renewable electricity a year to distribution companies in Central Interconnected System (SIC) for a period of 15 years starting in 2018. To fulfil this commitment, ACCIONA Energy plans to set up photovoltaic and wind power plants with a total capacity of 255 MW and an estimated investment of 400 million euros. In 2016 ACCIONA was awarded 506 GWh of energy supply since 2022, which will be met by a new wind farm to be built in the Araucania region.

    The company also develops projects for third-party customers. It has already built the first phase of the Pampa Camarones photovoltaic solar plant (7.2 MWp) for E-CL (GDF Suez Group).
