Iberdrola and AVIA announced an agreement to expand their collaboration and install more than 500 EV fast chargers. This new framework for action comes after completing their first agreement, which enabled the installation of 48 fast chargers at 24 AVIA service stations in seven Spanish regions.
As part of this initiative, Iberdrola and AVIA have already selected more than 100 service stations in practically every Spanish autonomous community for the installation of new charging points for electric vehicles.
A comprehensive agreement
The collaboration between these two companies will extend to actions in two other fields. For starters, Iberdrola will promote self-consumption systems at two AVIA service stations, based on the installation of PV solar panels.
Furthermore, the companies will develop customer loyalty initiatives. In detail, Iberdrola will prescribe the advantages of Club AVIA, which has more than 300,000 partners. In the meantime, customers of AVIA service stations will enjoy Iberdrola’s special advantages.
“The deal reaffirms the importance of collaborating will all agents involved in sustainable mobility. In AVIA, we have found an ideal ally with whom to advance in the implementation of solutions for long-distance fast charging to meet the challenges of electric mobility based on clean and emissions-free energy,” Alfonso Calderón, Commercial Director for Iberdrola Spain said.
“The electrification of transport, added to the rise of electricity from renewable sources will have a decisive contribution to reducing pollution in our cities and improving energy efficiency,” he added.
Through this agreement, AVIA will continue to be at the lead of a transition to a new model. This is a stage of deep transformation to become a benchmark multi-energy operator known for its quality and service capability.

Fast chargers in more than 20 service stations in Spain
The announcement comes a year after Iberdrola and AVIA agreed to install 48 fast chargers at 24 locations throughout Spain. This alliance is aimed at boosting electric mobility and the progressive implementation of the electric vehicle in our country.
The installation of these fast charging points has been completed in provinces of seven autonomous communities, including Andalusia; Castile-La Mancha, Community of Madrid, Valencian Community; la Rioja, Navarra, and the Basque Country.
Green energy and digital solutions
Users of these EV charging points have the possibility of recharging their electric vehicles with 100% renewable energy from clean sources with certificate of origin.
Also, they can do so using Iberdrola’s public recharge app, developed as part of its Smart Mobility Plan to track, reserve, and pay for EV loads using the smartphone.

Leader in sustainable mobility
As part of its strategy to boost and lead the energy transition and the electrification of transport, Iberdrola has prepared the Sustainable Mobility Plan. Up to 2021, the company plans to install 25,000 recharge points in Spain. The plan is aimed at homes and businesses, as well as public access to urban and inter-urban areas.
The program also includes the installation of fast, super-fast, and ultra-fast charging points across the country’s main highways and corridors. This way, it will reach all province capitals and cover all regions throughout the nation.
Iberdrola is also working on different proposals to boost the integration of all players involved in the development of sustainable mobility. The initiative includes institutions, businesses, and EV manufacturers.
Recently, Iberdrola became the first Spanish company to join the EV100 initiative created by The Climate Group, with the purpose of accelerating the transition to electric cars; committing to electrifying its entire vehicle fleet and facilitate charging for its staff at its Spain and UK offices by 2030.
