Strategic Outlook 2016-2020

Fifteen years ago, Iberdrola identified the need for cleaner and more sustainable energy and embarked on a growth strategy focused on renewables and regulated businesses.

This strategy remains true today, Iberdrola has moved faster and harder than competitors and this latest 2016-2020 Outlook Plan will invest €24 billion and will deliver earnings growth of 6% per annum.

Iberdrola is committed to leading the development of clean and competitive electricity, modernising and expanding electricity networks to improve quality of service and increase customer choice through digital enhancements.

Many companies today plan their investments in two year cycles; Iberdrola has the strength and confidence to publish a 5 year investment plan.
