The country-by-country breakdown of installed renewable capacity, as well as other information, is available on the company's facilities map.

At the Port Augusta hybrid project (317 MW of wind and solar PV technology) in Australia, commissioning work is under way and it is expected to enter commercial operation in the last quarter of the year.

In the realm of solar photovoltaic technology, the first photovoltaic plant in Portugal, Algeruz 2(27 MW), located in the Setúbal district, has been commissioned. Also in Portugal, work is continuing on the Alcochete I and II (46 MW) photovoltaic plants, where the installation of modules has started and in Conde (14 MW), which is expected to be commissioned before the end of the year. In Australia, work is continuing on the Avonlie project (245 MW), where the installation of photovoltaic modules has already begun.

For its part, the Mikronoros onshore wind farm (34 MW) has entered into commercial operation in Greece. Also in Greece, work is progressing on the Rokani wind farms (18 MW) in Viotia, Askio II (37 MW) and Askio III (50 MW), where the assembly of seven wind turbines has already been completed. At Flyers Creek wind farm (146 MW) in Australia work is continuing, and installation of the wind turbines is expected to begin in the last quarter.

Installed capacity breaks down as follows by country:

 

Onshore wind and photovoltaic MW
Australia 1,122
Greece 344
Hungary 158
France 118
Portugal 133
Poland 113
Romania 80
Cyprus 20
Italy 23

 

The development of offshore wind projects also continues:

  • In France, in the Saint Brieuc project (496 MW), work continues on the installation of foundations in the southern section of the park, with the plans to extend until 2023, and preparatory work is already under way to start the installation of the underground cable at the beginning of 2023, when the wind farm is expected to be commissioned.
  • In addition, Iberdrola is participating in three offshore wind auctions in France: the auction of 1 GW on the Normandy coast, whose bid date is in November, and the auction of 250 MW of floating offshore wind on the Brittany coast, already in the bidding phase, and the auction of two areas of 250 MW of floating technology in the Mediterranean, which is currently in the tender process. Successful tenderers for all three auctions are expected to be selected in 2023.
  • In Germany, in the Baltic Eagle project (476 MW), the piles and the jacket of the substation are already loaded to begin installation, works that will culminate with the installation of the topside during the first quarter of 2023. The manufacture of the foundations (monopiles and transition parts) is close to being completed to begin its installation in 2023. Manufacture of the cable and turbines will begin during the last quarter of the year.
  • In Sweden, the Utposten 2 project is still under way, jointly developed by Svea Vind Offshore and Iberdrola.
  • In Ireland, work continues with DP Energy on site characterisation for the three selected projects: Clarus, Shelmalere and Inis, with a total maximum capacity of 2,600 MW.
  • In Poland, the competitive process has started for a part of the areas for which Iberdrola, together with Sea Wind, have submitted applications for sea floor permits for the projects that will be included in the auctions to be held in the country from 2025.
  • In Norway, Iberdrola, together with its partners TotalEnergies and Norsk Havvind, have launched the Skjoldblad consortium to bid for the development of floating wind and fixed foundation projects by the Norwegian authorities, aiming to compete jointly for an accumulated capacity of 4,500 MW at two marine sites in the south of the country (Utsira Nord floating and Soerlige Nordsjoe fixed).
  • In Taiwan, the pace of development of the projects that Iberdrola Renovables Taiwan will present at the 2023 auction continues to pick up and, in this last quarter, a local team has been set up for this final stage of development.
  • In Australia, the Federal and State authorities continue to make progress in offshore wind development,

Renewable production in the third quarter totalled 3,595 GWh, up 12.2% compared to the same period last year, broken down by technology as follows:

 

Rest of the world GWh
Onshore wind 2,769
Offshore wind 803
Solar and other 24
Total 3,595

 

By technology, onshore wind production increased (+16%) mainly due to new capacity additions, while offshore wind production decreased slightly (−1.1%).
