The renewable energy generated by Magnon avoided more than 400,000 tons of CO2 in 2022

Thanks to the renewable energy generated in the Magnon Green Energy plants, an energy subsidiary of the Ence Group, it has been possible to avoid the emission of more than 400,000 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere last year.
At the Magnon plants, located in Andalusia, Castilla-La Mancha and Extremadura, renewable energy is generated daily from biomass. In this process, the agroforestry remains of the areas close to each facility are valued which, otherwise, could become an environmental problem, among other reasons, due to a possible uncontrolled burning due to their accumulation in the field.

This technology contributes to providing stability to the electricity mix thanks to its manageability, a characteristic that sets it apart from other renewable energies, which are completely dependent on the weather. Thus, hand in hand with electricity production technologies such as biomass, Spain will be able to achieve the decarbonisation objectives set at the European level.

In this way, Magnon takes advantage of the manageability of energy with biomass, which allows it to plan in the short, medium and long term, and adapts the energy it produces in real time to the needs of the electrical system, which contributes to achieve energy independence for our country.

In addition, biomass stands as one of the fundamental vectors in the just energy transition, since it allows plants linked to the “old economy” to be transformed into sustainable plants of the “new green economy”, thus maintaining employment and contributing to the improvement of the economy of rural environments.

In fact, biomass generation is an important piece in the fight against the so-called “emptied Spain”. Thanks to the Magnon plants, around 6,650 direct, indirect and induced jobs have been created in rural areas – according to data provided by the Association of Renewable Energy Companies (APPA) -. Sustainable and quality employment, which prevents the depopulation and deindustrialization of the rural world, especially in the 5 provinces in which it operates – Huelva, Córdoba, Jaén, Ciudad Real and Badajoz –.
