Iberdrola, the Spanish Utility company, has stated its intent to install 25,000 electric vehicle (EV) charging points by 2021.

Most of the charge points - 16,000 - will be installed in homes and the remaining 9,000 in companies that would like to offer this service to their employees or customers.

In line with its commitment to promoting sustainable mobility and offering its customers products and services they want when they want them, Iberdrola has launched its new Smart Mobility plan.

Smart Mobility is a global comprehensive solution that includes the acquisition of a charging station, its installation and guarantee, the consultation and the possibility of operating it in real time, as well as remotely through a simple app available for all IOS and Android devices (Smart Mobility Hogar app), together with a supply contract that is adapted to each customer.

Iberdrola has also designed a specific electricity plan to charge e-vehicles at homes that take advantage of the lowest cost times of day (from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m.) to charge the battery for less, cutting the estimated cost to 50 cents for every 100 kilometres.

Iberdrola is committed to supplying 100% green electricity and has a certificate guaranteeing the renewable sources, ensuring energy comes from clean generation.

Iberdrola's Sustainable Mobility

The company promotes electric mobility in line with its commitment to sustainability. The electrification of transportation is an effective way to fight climate change which is why the company has a Sustainable Mobility Plan that involves employees, company, customers, and suppliers through specific actions which aim to promote sustainable mobility.

Iberdrola has also incorporated the United Nations' Agenda Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into its business strategy and Sustainability Policy.

Iberdrola's investment in electric mobility contributes directly to achieving Goals 13 (action for the climate) and 11 (sustainable cities and communities) and indirectly to Goals 3 (health and well-being), 8 (decent work and economic growth) and 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure).
