Operating data

Rest of the world renewable installed capacity totalled 2,322 MW, 29.3% more than in the same period of the previous year, broken down as follows:

 

Rest of the world MW
Onshore wind 1,753
Offshore wind 350
Solar 144
Batteries 75
Total 2,322

 

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

Construction work continues on Port Augusta in Australia, a 317 MW hybrid wind and solar PV project, which will be one of the largest hybrid renewable energy plants in the southern hemisphere, with 88 MW of the 107 MW of solar photovoltaic capacity remaining to be installed and 210 MW of wind power capacity already in operation.

In solar PV, module assembly was completed at the Algeruz 2 plant (27 MW) in Portugal and Montalto de Castro (23 MW) in Italy, while work continues GWh 0 0 2022 2,595 1,428 4,023 MW 1,753 350 144 75 2,322 on the Avonlie project (245 MW) in Australia and on other projects in Portugal, totalling around 100 MW of capacity.

In onshore wind, work continues on the Mikronoros wind farm (34 MW) in Greece, which ended the year with 13 MW installed, whilst work has already begun on the Flyers Creek wind farm (146 MW) in Australia.

Onshore wind power is broken down per country as follows:

 

Onshore wind and photovoltaic MW
Australia 1,043
Greece 298
Hungary 158
France 118
Portugal 119
Poland 113
Romania 80
Cyprus 20
Italy 22

 

The development of offshore wind projects also continues:

Work has resumed in France on the Saint Brieuc project (496 MW) to install the foundations, a phase that will last until 2023, to be commissioned at the end of the same year. Iberdrola is also participating in the auction of 1 GW of fixed offshore wind off the Normandy coast and the auction of 250 MW of floating offshore wind in Brittany, both of which are in the tender process. The selection of successful bidders is expected in early 2023.

The construction of the offshore substation at the Baltic Eagle project (476 MW) in Germany is progressing on track for installation next summer, while work has begun on the foundations (monopiles and transition pieces), with installation scheduled to begin in 2023.

In Japan, Iberdrola Renewables Japan K.K continues to work alongside its partners, Hitachi Zosen and Cosmo EcoPower, to submit the best bid for the Aomori project, which is expected to be auctioned off in the first half of 2023. It also continues to develop the project portfolio with its partner Macquarie's Green Investment Group (GIG), paying special attention to the Saga project.

In Sweden, the Utposten 2 project is still underway, jointly developed by Svea Vind Offshore and Iberdrola.

In Ireland, work continues with DP Energy on site characterisation campaigns for the three selected projects: Clarus, Shelmalere and Inis, with a total maximum capacity of 2,600 MW.

In Poland, the first applications for seabed permits for projects that will compete in the auctions to be held in the country from 2025 have been jointly submitted with SeaWind.

In Taiwan, progress is still being made in the environmental impact studies, and geotechnical studies and the resource campaign have just been contracted at two sites, a necessary prerequisite for Iberdrola Renewables Taiwan to be able to bid in the offshore wind auctions next year.

In the Philippines, a collaboration agreement has been reached with a local developer, Triconti ECC Renewables, to develop a portfolio of 5 offshore wind projects with a maximum capacity of 3.5 GW

Renewable production at the close of Q1 2022 reached 1,370 GWh, up 13.9 % compared to the same period last year, with the following breakdown by technology:

 

Rest of the world GWh
Onshore wind 1,010
Offshore wind 358
Solar and other 2
Total 1,370

 

By technology, production increased with onshore wind (+18.6%), mainly due to new capacity additions, while offshore wind (+2.6%) increased due to the greater wind resource in Germany.
