Red Eléctrica at a glance

On January 29th, 1985, Red Eléctrica de España was born - the first company in the world exclusively involved in electricity system operation and transport. In 2008, in order to strengthen the transparency and separation of regulated activities from the rest of the business activities, a change was made in the Company's corporate structure with the creation of Red Eléctrica Corporación, as the parent company of the Group.

It all started with a high-voltage electricity line 10,500 km long. Now, more than 30 years later, that network stretches to 44,000 km with a workforce of over 1,800 people. Our objective is to guarantee the safe and continuous supply of electricity throughout Spain, and to develop a reliable transport network to support social progress. It’s an objective that we’re as committed to today as we’ve always been.

In recent years, there has been a significant boost in the diversification activities of the Red Eléctrica Group.
