ENERGY OBSERVER, a real floating laboratory, propelled only by renewable energies and hydrogen, continues its odyssey in the Mediterranean.

Through this partnership, discover ENGIE's activities in Spain.

ENGIE Spain committed to harmonious progress and to developing renewable energies.

ENGIE was a pioneer when the Spanish market opened and is now a leader in services for Energy efficiency. In this country, ENGIE also produces about 1.5 TWh of electricity with two combined cycle power plants (2,000 MW) and renewable assets (86 MW - mini-hydro and photovoltaic). Furthermore, it sells about 6 TWh/year to its large electricity and gas customers in Spain. With more than 2,000 skilled employees, ENGIE in Spain offers solutions for designing, operating and maintaining facilities, including the supply of energy required at each stage. In addition, two Heating and cooling networks in Zaragoza and Barcelona offer reliable supply to cities and buildings.

Discover some of ENGIE’s activities in Spain through Goya project, data centers activities and the BIM team.

Focus on Goya, a game-changing project

ENGIE focuses its activities on low carbon generation, global networks and client solutions. The Group has thus strong positions and ambitions in renewable energies. In Spain we developed a major project, called Goya, consisting in a 300 MW greenfield windfarm made of a cluster of 9 wind farms, to be built in the province of Zaragoza.

This project is one of Spain’s most important investment in renewable energy in the recent years. Its business model brings a competitive advantage by bringing together all ENGIE’s know how along the renewables value chain. Above all, it creates an innovative framework, free of subsidies, answering market needs for new RES developments.

Indeed, ENGIE will guarantee the purchase of the energy generated by the wind farms thanks to a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) for twelve years. A pioneer agreement in Spain, being the first to be signed both for wind farms under construction and for the contract period.

In addition, ENGIE will carry out the Energy Management Services (bidding services) during the entire operating life of the wind farms.

The “Goya Project” is a 300 MW late-stage development wind Project which was awarded to the Spanish company Forestalia in the first renewable generation auction carried out by the Spanish government in 2016. The total investment of the project will reach €300 million.

Thanks to its participation in this project, ENGIE significantly increases its energy footprint in Spain and its commitment to renewable energy as an essential part of its energy transition model.

Focus on data centers

ENGIE is one of the most important actors for the technical management of data centers in Spain, managing more than 30.000 square meter of IT rooms for local and multinational companies.

In this country, ENGIE offers its expertise for optimized global management, from design of data center to installation of technical equipment (HVAC system) and control of operations, including capability management, energy management and facility management.

As Global partner, ENGIE supports local companies as well as multinationals on the path of energy transition and optimised management of their infrastructure.

Focus on BIM (Building Information Modeling) - Becoming the global digital player in the building´s lifecycle

BIM Spain has been working since 2012 with this technology achieving an extra added value to its projects and customer loyalty. Up to day 600,000 square meters have been remodeled by BIM Spain.

Its approach to the 4.0 industry in the automotive sector is one of its major achievements. BIM is a very valuable option to obtain relevant information about the whole life cycle of any building.
