The complex has a self-consumption system with 110 photovoltaic panels and 20 charging points for electric vehicles.
Iberdrola and the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) have presented the first Sustainable Football City at the concentration facilities of the Spanish football teams in Las Rozas (Madrid), with 110 solar panels and 20 charging points for electric vehicles.
The agreement signed by Iberdrola and the RFEF has made it possible to install a self-consumption system made up of 110 photovoltaic solar panels on roofs and canopies that will allow the matches of the different football teams to be lit with renewable energy. The production of this facility is equivalent to the annual consumption of 30 homes and will prevent the emission of 22 tCO2 per year.
Likewise, the facilities have been equipped with 20 recharging points for electric vehicles to promote sustainable mobility among athletes and fans. Any electric vehicle user who visits the facilities will be able to use these recharging points with the guarantee of using 100% green energy from clean generation sources.
The electric recharging points will be available on the Iberdrola Public Recharge mobile application, the only one that incorporates verified information on all the electric vehicle chargers operating in Spain, and with which the geolocation of the charger can be managed, booked and recharged from the mobile.
"Iberdrola has been promoting and invigorating women's sport for years to create benchmarks that promote equal opportunities. In addition, for more than 20 years we have been committed to environmental sustainability through the development of clean energy. With this project in the City of Soccer we combine two of our main pillars and we demonstrate the great impact of our energy model which, like sport, is competitive and inclusive", explained Juan Luis Aguirrezabal, Director of Advertising, Brand and Global Sponsorships at Iberdrola.
For his part, the RFEF's marketing director, Rubén Rivera, has been "satisfied" with this alliance that underlines the RFEF's "commitment" to the UN's sustainable development goals (SDGs) and "care for the planet".
