Repsol has connected to the grid the first wind turbines of the PI wind project located in the provinces of Palencia and Valladolid and consisting of seven wind farms which, once completed, will have a total installed capacity of 175 megawatts (MW). These first turbines, located at the La Serna wind farm in the town of Ciguñuela, Valladolid, are already feeding renewable energy into the grid on a trial basis. Once the seven IP wind farms enter commercial operation, they will produce 596 gigawatt hours (GWh) of renewable energy per year, equivalent to the average annual consumption of 170,900 households, or 427,250 people, which is equivalent to more than the combined population of the cities of Valladolid and Palencia.
The company is making progress in the development of other renewable projects, such as Delta II, in Aragon, consisting of 26 wind farms located in the three Aragonese provinces (Zaragoza, Huesca and Teruel), with a total capacity of 860 MW, "the company's largest renewable project to date". Of these 26 wind farms, four are already operational, with a total potential of 160 MW, after the San Bartolomé I and II wind farms, with 100 MW, were recently commissioned. Work on the latter began in February last year and was completed in less than 11 months. The construction, within this project, of another 18 wind farms, with a combined capacity of 571 MW, will start soon, once the relevant administrative procedures have been approved. When completed, Delta II's renewable generation will supply electricity to nearly 800,000 homes and avoid the emission of more than 2.6 million tons of CO2 each year, according to Repsol.
Repsol's most noteworthy operating assets in Spain include the Delta wind project, also in Aragón, with 335 MW; and the Valdesolar photovoltaic plant (Valdecaballeros, Badajoz) with a total installed capacity of 264 MW. The Delta project is 49% owned by the investment group Pontegadea, and the Valdesolar project is 49% owned by The Renewables Infrastructure Group (TRIG). The Kappa photovoltaic complex is also in operation, with a capacity of 126.6 MW, also 49% owned by Pontegadea and located in Manzanares (Ciudad Real). As for projects in the pipeline, during 2022 and the beginning of 2023, the multi-energy company has obtained Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) for projects totaling more than 600 MW of installed capacity.
