The planned charging infrastructure expansion will include a mix of AC and DC charging options with outputs between 22 and 180 kW, with more than 400 of the new charging points offering between 100 and 120 kW. The Spanish energy company is not providing details on the hardware suppliers, and the investment volume is also not mentioned.

The 1,000 new charging points will be installed in areas with high traffic density near restaurants, shopping centres, and hotels, among others. They will be in operation next year. The press release does not clarify whether this means the beginning, middle, or even the end of 2025.

What is clear, however, is that the energy company’s network would grow to over 4,000 charging points on urban and interurban roads with the new charging points. To this end, Acciona Energia says it has reached numerous agreements with public bodies such as the city councils of Collado-Villalba (Madrid), Campdevánol (Gerona) and Onda (Castellón) as well as private companies such as Ikea and Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield to install hundreds of charging points at their shops and shopping centres. The company also wants to build the largest public charging station in Madrid. However, there is no further information on this.

With this step, the company is ‘continuing to drive forward the decarbonisation of transport and electromobility’, it says. Acciona Energia aims to build a public network totalling 25,000 charging points by 2030, based on its own charging stations and the network managed for third parties.
