The country-by-country breakdown of installed renewable capacity, as well as other information, is available on the company's facilities map.
At the Port Augusta hybrid project in Australia, commissioning work is underway and it is expected to enter commercial operation in the next few months.
In solar photovoltaic technology, the Montalto di Castro plant (23 MW) in Italy has entered commercial operation, while module assembly has been completed at the Conde plant (14 MW) in Portugal, where work is also continuing on the Algeruz II plant (27 MW). Meanwhile, in Australia, work continues on the Avonlie project (245 MW).
In onshore wind, work has begun on three wind farms in Greece, the Askio II (37 MW) and Askio III wind farms in Kozani, as well as the Rokani wind farm (18 MW) in Viotia. Also in Greece, the assembly of eight wind turbines that make up the Mikronoros wind farm (34 MW) has been completed and commissioning is being finalised for its entry into commercial operation. In Australia, work continues on the Flyers Creek wind farm (146 MW), with the installation of wind turbines expected to begin in the last quarter.
Onshore wind power is broken down per country as follows:

The development of offshore wind projects also continues:
In France, work continues on the seabed at the Saint Brieuc project (496 MW), having begun with the transfer and installation of the foundations of the turbines, the substation and the installation of both, a process that will continue until 2023, when the wind farm is expected to be commissioned.
In Germany, at the Baltic Eagle project (476 MW), the BSH (Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency) has received the construction permit for the wind farm. Manufacture of the substation is in its final phase for installation at the end of the year, and manufacturing work is progressing on the foundations (monopiles and transition pieces) for installation to begin in 2023.
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 for the three selected projects: Clarus, Shelmalere and Inis, with a total maximum capacity of 2,600 MW.
In Poland, applications for seafloor permits have been submitted together with SeaWind for the projects that will take part in the auctions to be held in the country from 2025, with the award process expected to be completed in 2022.
In Taiwan, in parallel to the progress in project development that Iberdrola Renovables Taiwan will present at the 2023 auction, talks are beginning in order to search for a partner to provide local knowledge and complement Iberdrolaâ€™s experience and leadership in offshore wind technology.
Renewable production at the close of H1 2022 reached 2,422 GWh, up 18.0 % compared to the same period last year, with the following breakdown by technology:
|Rest of the world||GWh|
|Solar and other||5|
By technology, onshore wind production increased (+25.5 %) mainly due to new capacity additions, while offshore wind production remained flat (-0.5 %).
