Iberdrola is consolidating its position as the main promoter of fast charging for electric vehicles in Spain, as reported on Tuesday, September 20.

Iberdrola has increased its public charging network for electric vehicles by 65 per cent in the last year to more than 2,500 points, with an expansion rate of more than one hundred new chargers per month.

So far this year, Iberdrola’s recharging network has supplied 9.5 GWh of energy, which with the use of combustion vehicles would have required the consumption of 3,550,000 litres of fuel.

This significant development of the public charging infrastructure is the result of the company’s electric mobility expansion plan, which will enable it to establish ultra-fast charging stations in strategic areas throughout Spain in the coming years, as well as to continue with the deployment of installations with lower power ratings.

The Iberdrola group plans to install around 150,000 high-efficiency charging points by 2025, both on urban roads, in cities and on major highways, and in homes and businesses.

With an investment of €150 million, Iberdrola’s integral sustainable mobility plan also includes actions for the electrification of public transport.

The company plans to install more than 280 chargers for city buses in Spain in the coming months.

Iberdrola is also providing its experience to advise local councils on defining the actions required for the implementation of electric buses as the best alternative for advancing decarbonisation and improving air quality in cities, as well as being the most economical option.

The news follows reports of Iberdrola claiming it is “committed to the development of solar power” and revealed it is to add “1,400 new solar megawatts (MW) in Spain in the coming months […] leading the fight against climate change.”

      electric cars are NOT a “green solution”. Apart from the horrendous cost to the environment for dragging minerals out of the ground to make their batteries, the electricity has to come from somewhere. The materials to make wind turbines and solar farms have to come from somewhere. And by the way, a friend recently travelled from Seville to Estepona and when he stopped at a petrol station along the way the petrol station had an electric car charging point ….being driven by a diesel powered generator… I kid you not. People have to wake up. All this is to limit your capacity to travel to go along with Agenda 30. Don’t believe me? You can donwload it and read it yourself, along with Agenda 21, the plans to imprison us all in mega cities…all there documented and signed up to by most governments around the world

      So instead of burning fuel in the auto, you burn it at the power plant to make the lecky. But the autos cost 3x as much. So we are paying extra to concentrate all the pollution in central locations and not much else. Such a deal…
