Investments that will drive change in the current energy model
The Canary Island’s electric power system is evolving towards a new energy model, based on renewable energies, that is more efficient and sustainable. The aim is that these locally-available renewable energy technologies, which produce zero CO2 emissions, achieve a greater presence in the coverage of the Islands’ electricity demand and replace other energy technologies based on more expensive and polluting fossil fuels.
To contribute to this progressive change in the energy model, Red Eléctrica is carrying out a major investment plan in order to ensure a more secure, efficient and sustainable electricity supply.
Currently Red Eléctrica is carrying out projects as the Salto de Chira, the first major energy storage system in the Canary Islands and the new submarine link that will interconnect the islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.
