Iberdrola and HEINEKEN Espana have added to their commitment to sustainability as a strategic thrust in their businesses by signing the first long-term power purchase agreement in Spain between an electricity supplier and a brewing group.The agreement signed by the two companies will contribute to the construction of a new photovoltaic plant in Andevalo, which will guarantee the supply of green electricity for at least 11 years to the four factories and offices of HEINEKEN Espana. The plant wwill become operational in 2020, in PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) mode, avoiding the mission into the atmosphere of over 100,000 tonnes of CO2 a year.Andevalo forms part of Iberdrola's strategy of investing in clean power generation projects in Spain - where it plans to install 3,000 MW by 2022 and its commitment to using bilateral agreements with big customers who are committed to sustainable consumption as a way to promote the supply of energy at affordable, stable prices.

For HEINEKEN Espana, this partnership will allow it to be the first brewer in the country to commit to producing its beer using only renewable energies by 2023.

To achieve this, HEINEKEN is implementing an ambitious road map which, among other initiatives, encompasses a 100% renewable electricity supply.Located in the municipality of Puebla de Guzman (Huelva) and with a surface area of 150 ha., the project will have an installed capacity of 50 MW and will consist of 147,000, 340 Wp polycrystalline silicon modules that will generate 82 Gwh/yr.
