Iberdrola sustainable mobility plan
Iberdrola continues to bet on the electrification of transport in its transition strategy towards a decarbonized economy, as a key lever for reducing emissions and pollution, as well as for green recovery.
The company deploys a sustainable mobility plan, with an investment of 150 million euros, with which it will intensify the deployment of charging points for electric vehicles in the coming years.
The initiative foresees the installation of nearly 150,000 recharging points, both in homes and in companies, as well as on urban roads, in cities and on the main highways in the coming years. The commitment to the deployment of high-efficiency stations will be specified in the installation of ultra-fast stations (350 kW) every 200 kilometers, super-fast (150 kW) every 100 kilometers and fast (50 kW), every 50 kilometers.
The company has a unique public recharge App, which verifies the operational public electric recharging infrastructure in Spain. The information is available in its public recharging App and includes, so far, more than 5,000 chargers on public roads for electric vehicles, both their own and those of third parties.

The company leads the market in recharging solutions for fleet vehicles, in companies and individuals, as well as in single-family homes and community and resident car parks, where Iberdrola customers recharge their electric vehicles with 100% green energy, from sources of clean generation.
Iberdrola was the first Spanish company to subscribe to The Climate Group’s EV100 initiative, with the aim of accelerating the transition to electric vehicles, committing to electrify its entire fleet of vehicles and facilitate staff recharging in its businesses in Spain and the United Kingdom. Joined to 2030.
