IBERDROLA ENERGY: 64.4% RENEWABLE, 3.8% HIGH EFFICIENCY COGENERATION

From April 2008 onwards, it is mandatory to inform the consumer of the source of the energy sold by the retailer and its associated environmental impact on electricity bills and marketing communications. This information is shown in graphs and labels that are the same for all the power companies, as established by the Spanish National Commission for Markets and Competition (CNMC).

In order to prepare these labels and graphs, the CNMC has set up a Guarantee of Origin system that enables the origin of the energy supplied by the various companies to be determined.

The mix of energy sources of each supplier for 2013 has been calculated and published based on the mix of primary energy sources that have been used in electricity production for 2013, and the Source Guarantees of each retailer.

This year, 64.4% of the energy sold by Iberdrola has been certified as being of renewable origin. As regards CO2 emissions and radioactive waste, Iberdrola has been labelled B in both cases, compared to double D for the national average.

Iberdrola thus confirms its firm commitment to renewable energy sources and its position as the world leader in the production of wind power.

The electricity put on the market by Iberdrola in 2013 comes primarily from renewable sources (64.4%) and is environmentally friendly.

INFORMATION ON YOUR ELECTRICITY

SOURCE OF ELECTRICITY

Although the electricity that arrives at our home is indistinguishable from the energy used by our neighbours or other consumers connected to the same power system, it is now possible to determine the production source of the electricity you use.

Thus, a breakdown of the combination of domestic production technologies is provided in order to enable you to compare the national average percentages with those of the energy sold by your electricity company.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

The environmental impact of the electricity you consume depends on the energy sources used for its generation.

On a scale of A to G, where A indicates minimum environmental impact and G maximum impact, and the average national value is D, the energy sold by IBERDROLA has the following values.

IBERDROLA CARBON DIOXIDE EMISSIONS

Carbon content (Kg of kWh carbon dioxide) = 0.16

IBERDROLA HIGH-ACTIVITY RADIOACTIVE WASTE


 

Radioactive waste (Milligrams per kWh) = 0.31

Pursuant to the Source Guarantee and Consumer Information System implemented by the National Commission for Markets and Competition, Iberdrola declares that all electricity put on the market in 2013 has been labelled as category B, which indicates low environmental impact.
