"The commissioning of EDPR's first hybrid wind/solar park is a reflection of our pioneering and innovative spirit as well as a deepening of our commitment to energy transition within our core business regions. By taking this hybrid approach we will be able to increase the amount of electricity produced within the region as well as minimise the impact of new undertakings in renewables by maximising use of the pre-existing infrastructure. We fully intend to carry on investing in the hybridisation of parks held in our portfolio, both in Portugal as well as in other regions with strong development potential," states Duarte Bello, EDPR executive director for Europe and Latin America.

This comes after the announcement of EDP Renewables connecting the Mina de Orgueirel Solar Plant in Sabugal municipality, Portugal, to the grid. The solar park is located next to the Mosteiro Wind Park with a direct connection to the substation, taking full advantage of the electrical infrastructure already in place and creating a hybrid electricity production complex. This increases the amount of energy capable of being produced by the complex to 8.4 MW, for over 39 GWh of renewable energy production per year.

It is the first international hybrid plant of its kind on the Iberian Peninsula to combine the two different technologies, further contributing to decarbonisation and increasing the presence of renewable energy on the electrical grid. The hybrid project is capable of producing up to 39.5 GWh per year, enough to provide over 30,000 people with renewable energy over the course of one year. The hybrid complex will also help prevent the emission of approximately 18,000 tonnes of CO2 annually.
