The operating portfolio, spread over 11 countries, now amounts to 10.4 GW.

The operating portfolio, spread over 11 countries, now amounts to 10.4 GW.

Madrid, 26 July 2017: EDP Renewables (Euronext: EDPR), a global leader in the renewable energy sector and one of the largest wind energy producers in the world, announced today that, as of 30 June, the company managed an operating portfolio totalling 10.4 GW spread over 11 countries, of which 10.1 GW were fully consolidated and 356 MW equity consolidated. Over the last year, EDPR added 707 MW to its installed capacity (428 MW in the US, 200 MW in Mexico and 79 MW in Europe).

Between January and June of 2017, EDPR has supplied 14.5 TWh of green electricity (+9% YoY), avoiding 12 mt of CO2 emissions. The increase in production benefitted mainly from the capacity additions (+8% YoY average capacity) along with an average wind resource. The achieved load factor in 1H17 was 34%.

Financial results

EDPR posted total revenue of €988 million in the first half of 2017 (+11% YoY). The average selling price in 1H17 reached €60/MWh (stable YoY), reflecting a higher selling price in Europe (+4% YoY), a stable price in North America and a lower average selling price in Brazil (-16%).

EBITDA was up 11% YoY to reach €719 million, thanks to higher YoY production and despite the increase in other operating costs (which includes levies). This was mainly as a consequence of the higher capacity now in operation. EBIT increased to €459m (+30% YoY), as a result of lower depreciation and amortization costs, including impairments and net of government grants.

Depreciation and amortization decreased 12% YoY, reflecting EDPR’s change in depreciation schedule from 25 to 30 years, which offsets the negative impact from the higher capacity in operation.

Net profit between January and June amounted to €134 million, while adjusted net profit was up 16% YoY to reach €122 million (non-recurring items: 1H16 -€47m; 1H17 +€12m, including impacts from the updated depreciation and amortization schedule).

Operating Cash-Flow totalled €535 million (+13% YoY) reflecting mainly EBITDA performance. In June 2017 net debt totalled €3,130 million (+€375 million vs December 2016) and while Institutional Partnership Liabilities decreased to €1,129m (-€391 million vs December 2016).

This agreement will see EDPR supply wind energy to Calidad Pascual over the next 5 years. Last year, EDP certified that 99% of the electricity consumed by Calidad Pascual was from renewable sources.

 

Acuerdo Grupo Pascual

 

Madrid, 24 July 2017: The EDP Group and Calidad Pascual have signed a pioneering power purchase agreement (PPA) in the Spanish market.

The three-way agreement will allow Calidad Pascual to buy – through EDP’s energy marketing company – wind energy produced at wind farms owned by EDP Renewables (EDP Renewables, Euronext: EDPR), a global leader in the renewable energy sector and one of the world’s largest wind energy producers. This is the first PPA to be signed in Spain, making EDPR the first wind power producer to sell energy directly to the end client.

The agreement has a term of 5 years and will run from 1 January 2018 until 31 December 2023.

A power purchase agreement, or PPA, allows for the sale of electricity by a producer, in this case EDPR, directly to an end client – Calidad Pascual – at a fixed price over the long term. This enables the client to buy energy at a stable, attractive price and to plan ahead in terms of energy costs. It also means the consumer has greater visibility in terms of electricity prices beyond the standard market timescales.

It also allows Calidad Pascual to strengthen its sustainability commitments, becoming the first direct buyer of electricity sourced exclusively from wind farms in Spain. Thanks to this agreement, Calidad Pascual can offer transparent, verifiable guarantees that that the energy provided under this agreement is exclusively sourced from renewable wind farms.

Upon signing the agreement, David Casañ, COO at Calidad Pascual, said: “This agreement reflects our commitment to the use of renewable energy. Ninety-nine per cent of the energy we consume is now from renewable sources and we are working on improving that figure even further through innovative solutions and the efficient use of resources to enhance competitiveness and guarantee environmental sustainability”.

Rocío Sicre, Managing Director of EDPR in Spain, said: “We are immensely pleased with this agreement, which makes Calidad Pascual and EDPR pioneers in this type of initiative in Spain”.
Javier Flórez, EDP B2B Sales Director, added: “This agreement is a massive step forward for the Spanish market and shows that EDP is capable of delivering attractive, innovative solutions to its clients. This will undoubtedly lead to other organisations taking similar steps going forward”.

Lastly, Francisco Hevia, CSR and Communications Director, Calidad Pascual, said: “This agreement forms part of our Environmental Impact Plan to minimise our environmental footprint by making our manufacturing processes more efficient, especially in terms of the use of resources. One of our objectives for 2020 is to cut our electricity consumption by 20%”.
This contract strengthens the original agreement between EDP and Calidad Pascual, which dates back to 2005, to supply the company with energy and roll out various initiatives, which have positioned Calidad Pascual as an efficiency and sustainability leader.

A global trend
Although this is the first corporate PPA in Spain, these agreements are now a global trend. EDPR has partnered on PPAs with major companies like Bloomberg and Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) in the US and Industrias Peñoles in Mexico.
These initiatives allow organisations to ensure the supply of renewable energy and meet their sustainability targets. It also supports the fight against climate change by certifying the source of the energy subject to these agreements.

The EDPR programme has held 49 educational sessions at schools across Catalonia since March. The goal of the programme is to raise awareness among schoolchildren about the need to adopt basic habits, attitudes and behaviours that respect the environment, both at school and at home.

The EDPR programme has held 49 educational sessions at schools across Catalonia since March. The goal of the programme is to raise awareness among schoolchildren about the need to adopt basic habits, attitudes and behaviours that respect the environment, both at school and at home.


Madrid, 23rd June 2017:
EDP Renewables (EDP Renewables, Euronext: EDPR), a global leader in the renewable energy sector and one of the world’s largest wind energy producers, has rolled out its ¡TU ENERGÍA! (Your Energy) educational programme in Catalonia, which has proved very popular. The sessions, which took place between March and June, were held at 59 schools in the provinces of Barcelona and Tarragona.

¡TU ENERGÍA! was developed to educate children on the importance and benefits of renewable energy for the environment. This programme has allowed EDPR to convey this important message to 3,980 primary school children within the region.

The sessions consisted of walking the children through the world of renewable energies using child-friendly characters representing solar, hydraulic, wind, geothermal and biomass energies, so that they can learn about their different features in an attractive, friendly way and on a level they can understand. The activities, which are accompanied by videos and interactive presentations, help raise the children’s awareness of the importance of responsible energy use and the benefits of using renewable energies.

The initiative has also been very well received by teachers, who have underscored the importance of these types of programmes and the fact that learning about these issues in school is the most effective way of supporting the message of sustainable development. Children are able to learn about the benefits of renewable energy in an understandable way, ensuring a more sustainable future. Many schools participating in this edition of the programme have also shown interest in renewing their involvement in future years, in view of the very successful results.

João Paulo Costeria, CEO of EDP Renewables Europe, said: “This project allows us to continue working towards raising awareness among children, who on many occasions are those that convey the message of care and respect for the environment at home. “It is vital they feel they are taking part in a mission that involves us all and that they become familiar with renewable energy and the importance of responsible energy consumption, emphasising the benefits of sustainable development”.

Paris, 24 June 2017: 
EDP Renewables (EDPR), the world’s fourth largest wind energy producer, has opened its new 10 MW wind farm today in the municipalities of Ambrault and Vouillon, in the French department of Indre. The five wind turbines located at this facility will generate clean electricity equivalent to the energy consumed by over 17,000 people or, in other words, equal to the population of the commune of Ardentes.

The opening ceremony was attended by Pascale Silbermann, the Sub-Prefect for Issoudun; Jean-François Mayet, Senator for the department of Indre; Pierre Rousseau, President of the Champagne Boischaut community of communes; Etienne Aujard, Mayor of Ambrault; Yves Prevost, Mayor of Vouillon; and Patrick Simon, Deputy Country Manager, EDPR France and Belgium.
The Champagne Berrichone wind farm has five wind turbines which are 182 metres tall. The wind farm is the result of ten years of joint work with local people, politicians and representatives of the French State to maximise wind resources in the area, taking into consideration both human and environmental aspects.

This new facility is an important contribution to the energy transition taking place both at national and regional level and offers substantial budgetary advantages for the various local authorities. These five wind turbines join the eleven already in place in the municipalities of Liniez and Vatan since 2011 and brings EDPR’s operational capacity in Indre to 43 MW. This constantly changing activity will generate new jobs related to the operation and upkeep of the facilities in Indre. EDPR has also drawn on the services of numerous local companies during the construction phase.

Patrick Simon, Deputy Country Manager, EDPR France, highlighted “the immense pride that comes from participating in the energy transition taking place both in Centre-Val de Loire and throughout France, and how satisfying it is to contribute to wealth creation across the region. We start today an extensive operational period, which will strengthen our relationship with all the local players”.

Etienne Aujard, mayor of Ambrault, underlined “the quality of the relationship with EDPR, which has been key to the success of the project. Thanks to budgetary benefits, the presence of the wind farm will allow our municipalities to participate in various projects that will benefit the local community and the quality of life in the area.”

The winning project, which consists of three wind turbines powered by solar panels, was selected by the jury out of 75 entries from schools across Spain. EDPR’s Wind Experts contest aims to make children aware of the importance of wind energy.

João Paulo Costeira, COO of EDPR EU and Brazil, participated in the roundtable “Wind power and different tender models: the experience of developers in different countries,” which kicked off the AEE’s third Spanish Wind Power Congress on June 20-21.

 

 

AEE Congreso Eólico Español      AEE-3 Congreso Eólico Español

 
Madrid, 22 June 2017:  Topics discussed included the indisputable advantages of the auction system in the context of Spain’s tender process. Though it is a complex system, its competitiveness and efficiency is unquestionable; 3.7 GW have already been awarded and an additional 3 GW will be awarded at the auction set to take place in July. A total of 6.7 GW will be reached by 2019.

The Secretaries of State for Energy and Commerce, Daniel Navia and Maria Luisa Poncela, who participated in the opening of the conference, highlighted the important internationalization and industrialization efforts taking place within the wind sector with the aim of advancing and creating job opportunities within the Spanish economy. Currently, 10% of the world’s installed capacity belongs to Spanish companies and 12% of wind turbines are produced in factories in Spain.

João Paulo Costeira said that for EDPR, “Auctions are an excellent system. We’re now very clear on what we look for in an auction, whether it’s the legal security it implies, the predictability of the associated earnings or our own profitability objectives.”

Electric auctions place Spain very close to its 2020 goal of 20% renewables. According to Navia, “As a result of auctions, the renewables market has grown more consolidated in a way that’s financially appealing to the consumer. It’s now probably the most efficient method for meeting established objectives.”

This doesn’t mean entirely smooth sailing; in the words of João Paulo Costeira, “Spain needs the megawatts being bid upon to meet renewable energy commitments by 2020. But meeting these objectives also requires grid connection rights, and the mechanisms are overly complex.”

In short, the sector is committed to auctions, but to those that have been well designed and defined within a framework of regulatory stability.

Madrid, 21 June 2017: EDP Renewables (EDP Renewables, Euronext: EDPR), a global leader in the renewable energy sector and one of the world’s largest wind energy producers, has awarded the first prize in the second edition of its Wind Experts contest to a group of sixth graders from the Barrié de la Maza School in Santa Comba (A Coruña).

The award ceremony, held at the winning group’s school, was attended by EDPR’s Head of Business in Galicia, José Toja. In addition to an official plaque, which is given to everyone taking part in the contest, this first prize also includes a visit to an EDPR wind farm located in the province, a science workshop that will take place at the school and toys provided by Science4you (the contest’s partner toy company).

The winning group at the Barrié de la Maza School, dubbed los Eólicos, designed and built three wind turbines fitted with miniature solar panels on the upper part of the structure which activate the turbines when exposed to sunlight.

The children, aged 10-13, were helped by a teacher at their school during the design process for the wind turbines. The jury sifted through videos and pictures of the children developing their prototypes to select the winning entry.

The goal of EDPR’s contest is to raise awareness among children about the importance of wind energy and the results of this second edition are a clear reflection of just how popular this initiative has become. Close to 300 children divided into 75 groups at 25 different primary schools across Spain took part in this year’s edition, an increase of 150% versus the first edition.

João Paulo Costeria, CEO of EDP Renewables Europe, said: “These types of initiatives help make future generations aware of renewable energy and the importance of responsible energy consumption, as well as underscoring the benefits of sustainable development”.

EDP Renewables (EDPR), a global leader in the renewable energy sector and one of the world’s largest wind energy producers, celebrated the fifth anniversary today 17 June of the wind farms at Massingy-lès-Vitteaux and Marcellois in France’s Côte d’Or.

France, 17 June 2017. EDP Renewables (EDPR), a global leader in the renewable energy sector and one of the world’s largest wind energy producers, celebrated the fifth anniversary today 17 June of the wind farms at Massingy-lès-Vitteaux and Marcellois in France’s Côte d’Or.

 

IMG_5241     IMG_5340

 

Each township is home to six wind turbines, which are each 130 metres tall and have an installed capacity of 1.8 MW.

These twelve wind turbines generate an annual output equivalent to the energy consumed by 15,000 people, excluding heating (ADEME, 2013). This represents the annual consumption of almost the entire population of the Terres d’Auxois area, all generated on land that covers less than three hectares. Thanks to a technical availability of 99%, EDPR has registered an optimum output level, allowing the company to get the most out of the wind resources in the area. The output at both farms is contributing towards meeting the goal of increasing renewables in the energy mix throughout France and in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region in particular.

To celebrate this milestone, and coinciding with Global Wind Day, the Mayors of these two municipalities, Mr. Pétréau and Mr. Lagneau, arranged a visit to the Marcellois wind farm so they could see for themselves the various activities involved in a wind energy project. The event was attended by representatives of various EDPR departments (project development, construction and operation) to explain the project to the attendees.

Those participating were treated to a performance by the local Rallye d’Auxois hunting horn association, led by the Mayor of Massingy-lès-Vitteaux, and an exhibition looking back at the events that have taken place over the five years since the facility entered service.

These celebrations reflect the healthy relations EDPR enjoys with local players and evidence the company’s commitment to establishing long-lasting bonds with the region.
These two wind farms are also a source of wealth for the local community. The activities necessary to ensure the optimum operation of wind turbines generate over 15,000 direct jobs in France, 700 of which are in the region. These wind farms also generate tax benefits that municipalities and adjacent communities can harness to roll out local projects aimed at improving the quality of life in the area.

Lagneau, the Mayor of Marcellois since 2001, said: “We are immensely proud to have these wind turbines in our local community. EDPR has included us at every stage of the project, from development to their entry into service. The wind farms have also generated significant tax revenues which have helped strengthen municipal budgets and allowed us to carry out initiatives to improve the quality of life for local people, such as the creation of a local council office and its facilities, hiring a landscape gardener to maintain the gardens (the municipality has been awarded Village Fleuri (Villages in Bloom) certification and was recognised for the 12th time in 2014) and the refurbishment of the old school”.

Patrick Simon, Deputy Managing Director, EDPR France, said: “We are hugely proud of being able to participate in the challenging energy transition in France and in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté specifically. Contributing to the creation of wealth in our region is enormously satisfying. Today’s celebrations reflect EDPR’s commitment to working alongside our local partners”.
