Rest of the world renewable installed capacity at the end of the nine months of 2023 totalled 3,354 MW, 36.3% more than in the same period of the previous year, broken down as follows:
|Rest of the world||MW|
The country-by-country breakdown of installed renewable capacity, as well as other information, is available on the company's facilities map.
In photovoltaic solar technology, the Montechoro 1 and 2 projects (37 MW) in Paderne, Portugal have completed works on the plant’s medium-voltage line and substation, and are close to completing the installation of their photovoltaic modules. Still in Portugal, in the district of Lisbon, installation continued of photovoltaic modules and substation works at the Carregado project (64 MW).
In Italy, work continued on the Montefiascone photovoltaic plant (7 MW) in the Lazio region and, in Australia, the Avonlie project (245 MW) commenced commercial operations in August.
In terms of onshore wind, in Greece, commissioning of the wind farms Askio II (37 MW), in Kozani, and Rokani (18 MW), in Viotia, was successfully completed, and both wind farms are now in commercial operation.
In Australia, installation continued of wind turbines at the Flyers Creek wind farm (146 MW), where a total of 21 out of 38 wind turbines have been installed. Meanwhile, commissioning activities progressed and the farm produced its first export on 31 August.
In Poland, the purchase was completed for two onshore wind farms, Podlasek and Wólka Dobryńska, which have a total capacity of 50 MW and have been in operation since August.
Installed capacity breaks down as follows by country:

The development of offshore wind projects also continues:
- In Germany, at the Baltic Eagle (476 MW) project, installation of the monopiles was completed. Likewise, interconnection cables should be installed and the offshore substation energised next quarter. Meanwhile, manufacture of wind turbine nacelles, towers and blades has progressed and the first shipments will be made to the pre-assembly port in the coming weeks. Furthermore, a strategic co-investment agreement for this project was reached with Masdar in July. In the meantime, work continued on the Windanker project (315 MW) and major supply contracts and PPAs have been secured.
- In France, the Saint Brieuc project (496 MW), 45 wind turbines and piles have been fully installed and works continued to install the jackets – this will be completed in October. The first turbines have been put into operation and the rest are expected to be connected to the network gradually until all of the farm’s 62 wind turbines are commissioned.
- In Japan, results from the awarding of Round 2 projects are expected in the first quarter of 2024 (expected capacity of 1.6 GW in four locations). Iberdrola will co-develop 600 MW at the Seihoku-oki wind farm with a Japanese | Operational performance over the period www.iberdrola.com | 28 Results Presentation Nine Months 2023 developer. Iberdrola continues to develop the projects in its portfolio for future rounds with Japanese partners (both Round 3 and subsequent rounds, paying special attention to the new areas identified by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) on Hokkaido Island), and the Round 3 auction is expected to be submitted in the second quarter of 2024.
Renewable production at the close of the nine months of 2023 reached 4,180 GWh, up 16.3 % compared to the same period last year, with the following breakdown by technology:
|Rest of the world||GWh|
|Solar PV and batteries||266|
By technologies, onshore wind production increased in the period by 12.7% compared to the same period in 2022, primarily thanks to new capacity additions, namely the Port Augusta complex in Australia, Askios II and III in Greece and Korytnica II in Poland. Meanwhile, offshore wind production reached 794 GWh and decreased slightly (-1%) due to the lower load factor of Wikinger in Germany, while photovoltaic solar production stands at 266 GWh in the period compared to 24 GWh in the same period in 2022.
