Globally, ACCIONA is one of the main renewable energy operators in the world, with more than 10,000 MW installed for the company in five clean technologies. These technologies include; wind, solar PV, solar thermal, hydro and biomass.
With over 30 years experience in the renewable energy sector, the company offers reliable and efficient solutions based on the most advanced technologies. The company also markets electricity of 100% renewable origin in the electricity markets and through bilateral contracts with large customers, with special focus on corporations that want to reduce their carbon footprint.
Based on its wide-ranging experience as a wind power operator, the company developed its own wind turbine-generator technology, which capped its success by agreeing to merge with the German company Nordex in 2016, creating a global leader in turbine manufacturing. In parallel, ACCIONA became the biggest shareholder in Nordex, thus maintaining its presence throughout the wind energy value chain.
ACCIONA in Australia has a total installed capacity of 402 MW owned by ACCIONA and is currently building a fifth wind farm in Mortlake, Victoria. Once operational, this will bring the total installed capacity to 590 MW, which is enough clean energy to power 422,000 homes.
ACCIONA is a global leader in the promotion, construction, operation and maintenance of wind facilities, with more than 20 years of experience in the sector. The combination of its leadership and knowledge of the sector have established ACCIONA as a global provider of products and services in all aspects of wind energy. They have installed more than 7,000 MW in property and nearly 1,500 additional MW for clients..

ACCIONA has extensive experience in the construction of photovoltaic plants. It has installed more than 1,000 MWp capacity for itself and for its customers. Of these, the 405-MWp Puerto Libertad (Mexico), one of the largest in Latin America, stands out, as well as El Romero Solar (246 MWp) in Chile, Benban (186 MWp) in Egypt and Sishen (94.3 MWp) in South Africa.
ACCIONA became a pioneer in 2007 when it grid connected the Nevada Solar One, a 64 MW parabolic cylinder facility located in the Nevada Desert (USA). After that, the company installed five plants in Spain totaling 250 MW of capacity, which were sold to ContourGlobal in 2018.
ACCIONA is linked to the upgrading of small hydroelectric plants with decades of operation and leveraging their full value; it also has a long and successful history of building new plants and evaluating the resource in design, construction and O&M. The major hydroelectric generation park of the company, estimated at 888 MW, places this technology in second place of power generation after wind energy.
ACCIONA has extensive experience in the field of biomass, both in terms of fuel supply logistics and the operation of plants which produce electricity. ACCIONA has three fully operational biomass plants, all of which stand as a benchmark in biomass-fueled power generation totaling 61 MW located in Sangüesa (30 MW), Briviesca (16 MW) and Miajadas (15 MW).
Thousands of MW currently being developed or undergoing administrative proceedings; present in 46 countries and with regulatory experience in more than 30 countries. Fully acquainted with finance mechanisms and co-investment solutions, and additional development services (WTG sales, EPCs, O&M, etc.).
Over 10,000 MW in renewables, in own projects and for third parties. An industry benchmark in construction methodologies and has set the bar in the wind power sector. A pioneering force in integrating the environment variable in projects.
ACCIONA Energy has 9,000 MW of fully-operational renewables facilities currently on its books. We are a trailblazer in tech solutions related to grid-connection of renewables, adaptation to power peaks and dips, and extremely accurate prediction models. We have the world's largest renewables control center.
Through its subsidiary, ACCIONA Green Energy Developments, ACCIONA Energy markets 100% renewable energy to end-customers. It also manages the sales of electricity produced by the group’s facilities as well as electricity generated by other renewable producers who rely on the experience and technical capacity of ACCIONA.
Renewable energy, such as solar photovoltaic or wind power, has become attractive as it offers many benefits: controlling energy costs, reducing carbon footprint and aligning with environmental commitments.
Waubra Wind Farm is located approximately 35 kilometres north-west of Ballarat in Victoria. At peak, the wind farm can generate enough green energy to power more than 120,000 homes or enough electricity for the City of Ballarat and surrounding areas.
The site covers an area of about 29km², with a coastal exposure of nearly 11 kilometres. The Wind Farm consists of 33 two-megawatt wind turbines – generating enough green electricity to supply 35,000 homes every year.
The Gunning Wind Farm in New South Wales consists of 31 wind turbines built on the Cullerin Range, approximately 15 kilometres north-east of Gunning in the Upper Lachlan Shire.
ACCIONA partnered with FRV to provide engineering, construction and operational services on the Royalla Solar Farm project, a project that delivers clean, renewable energy to the Canberra region.
Mt Gellibrand Wind Farm is located 25 kilometres east of Colac and 17km west of Winchelsea in the Colac Otway Shire on Victoria’s Western Plains. The wind farm has been constructed around the southern and western sides of Mt Gellibrand itself. These open and partly elevated plains make the site an ideal location for a wind farm.
ACCIONA is progressing to the next stage in the development of the Mortlake South Wind Farm.
The wind farm will be constructed along an elevated ridge exposed to consistent winds across the open Mallee Plains to the north and west. Planning approval was originally granted by Buloke Shire Council in 2007. In 2014, the Buloke Shire Council approved an amendment to the planning permit to allow for the use of contemporary wind turbine technology. ACCIONA has recently received an extension of time to commence construction of the Berrimal Wind Farm from Buloke Shire Council.
