ACCIONA has installed flexible organic photovoltaic modules in a wind turbine tower in the Breña Wind Farm (Albacete, Spain) to cover the consumption of the turbine’s auxiliary systems. It is a pioneering solution at global level in the field of hybridization between wind and photovoltaic power and will allow the study of the performance of the organic panels -an emerging photovoltaic technology- and their application to improve wind turbine efficiency.
ACCIONA has put two new renewable energy projects into service in Chile in the last trimester: the San Gabriel wind farm (183 MW) in the region of La Araucanía and the Almeyda photovoltaic plant (62 MWp) in the region of Atacama. This means that the company has increased its operating capacity in the country by 84%, strengthening its position as the main generator of 100% renewable electricity in the Chilean market.
The Waubra Wind Farm is located approximately 35 kilometres north-west of Ballarat in Victoria and has been operating since 2009. During this time, ACCIONA has built strong relationships within the community and is proud of what the project has achieved and the clean energy it will continue to generate for many more years to come.
