Unique projects

In recent years, Red Eléctrica has been carrying out projects that, due to their unique nature and technical complexity, represent a very important technological challenge and highlight the investment capacity of the Company.

Noteworthy is the electricity interconnection between the Spanish peninsula and the Balearic Islands: a project that has become of world reference. This interconnection enables the reliability and quality of supply on the Balearic Islands to be improved and represents a significant cost savings for the Spanish electricity system. Another very important infrastructure is the interconnection line between Spain and France through the eastern Pyrenees, which has allowed Spain to double its exchange capacity with Europe.

In the upcoming years, our investment capacity and technological capabilities will be demonstrated with the construction of the Soria-Chira pumped-storage hydropower plant. An energy storage facility that will become an effective tool for system operation in order to ensure supply, improve system security and optimize the integration of renewable energies in the island of Gran Canaria.

This energy storage facility is a key element in order to advance towards the sustainability of the new energy model in the Canary Islands, based on renewable energies. More information.

This interconnection doubles the exchange capacity between France and Spain, resulting in greater security of supply and stability for both electricity systems. More information.

It represents the first submarine transmission link in direct current that exists in Spain and represents the highest investment made by Red Eléctrica in one single project. More information.
