The electricity company Iberdrola continues to expand its network of chargers for electric vehicles to meet the needs of a constantly evolving sector. Forecasts indicate that the number of electric vehicles in circulation will increase 12-fold by the end of the decade.
This circumstance requires a rapid deployment of charging infrastructure, especially in the public grid. Iberdrola already has more than 2,500 public recharging points, of which nearly 40% are fast or ultra-fast recharging points, and maintains an expansion rate of more than one hundred new chargers of this type per month.
Thanks to this strong development, the company's charging stations have already reached more than 900 different locations in Spain. And now it 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 overall investment of 150 million euros, Iberdrola's comprehensive sustainable mobility plan has already enabled the installation of 20,000 recharging points in Spain.
As part of this plan, Iberdrola has signed more than 60 infrastructure deployment agreements with administrations, institutions, companies, service stations, dealers and electric vehicle manufacturers.
Iberdrola's commitment to the decarbonization of transport covers all areas of action, including collective transport and micro mobility. Thus, the company has already put into operation the first charger for electric scooters in Madrid.
This is one of the innovative options that the electric company is showing at the seventh edition of the Madrid Electric Vehicle Fair, which is being held this weekend in the capital and which was attended by the CEO of Iberdrola Spain, Mario Ruiz-Tagle.
The electricity supplied by this device comes from a photovoltaic panel installed on the ground, which guarantees its 100% renewable origin.
This integral solution model is also one of the alternatives offered by Iberdrola for its domestic customers, who can opt for the installation in their homes of lower power recharging points together with self-consumption solar systems.
The Iberdrola display also has a prominent presence in the street charging with the exhibition of the 'Supernova' charger manufactured by Wallbox. With a power of 60 kW, it allows a range of up to 100 kilometers to an electric vehicle with a recharge of only 15 minutes.
