We produce renewable, solid and manageable energy source
Ence is the first company in Spain in renewable energy production with forestry and agricultural biomass. Ence has a total installed capacity of 266 MW, of which 13 MW to cogeneration with natural gas and 253 MW to generation with biomass. Our annual production capacity rose to 1,044 GWh in 2019.
Renewable energy with biomass has a huge development potential in Spain. In fact, it is the only renewable energy that presents a positive economic balance for the benefits generated given its capacity to create employment, develop the rural environment and contribute to the improvement of the environment. In this sense, it should be noted, in addition to the capture of CO2, its contribution to the care and cleaning of the mountains, with a reduction in the risk of fires of up to 70%, as well as the use of agricultural biomass, which avoids It is uncontrolled and polluting in our fields.
In addition, biomass is the most stable and the only manageable renewable energy, without depending on variable factors such as wind or water, so it could participate in the progressive replacement of coal or nuclear generation.
Ence generates energy in 8 production plants
Ence generates renewable electricity in eight independent production plants: three in Huelva, two in the province of Ciudad Real, one in Córdoba, one in Mérida and one in Jaén. These are generation plants that feed on biomass of agroforestry origin.
To these 253 MW of independent renewable energy generation, 112 MW of low-emission and sustainable cogeneration are also added, derived from the pulp production process at the Navia and Pontevedra biofactories.
Benefits of biomass energy
Fully manageable renewable energy generation
Steady and safe energy
Neutral in CO2 emissions, contributes to mitigate climate change
A homegrown energy resource, abundant in Spain
Prevents fires and the uncontrolled burning of stubble
The energy that contributes the most to rural development and employment
Excess agroforestry biomass in Spain
(Data by Autonomous Community)
- Data show the great potential of various Autonomous Communities. The Andalusian Community stands out in this regard, being able to reach a power generation capacity of 2.7 GWt.
- The great possibilities of communities such as Castilla La Mancha and Castilla León with a potential of 1.5 GWt and 1.3 GWt, respectively, should also be noted.
- The Community of Aragon could install 1 GWt of capacity and Extremadura would achieve a power generation capacity of 0.9 GWt. The Valencian Community may aspire to install a capacity of 0.7 GWt.
