Capital Energy, a Spanish energy company with two decades of experience, has entered into a significant agreement with Cementos Alfa, a subsidiary of the multinational leader in cement and concrete production, Cementos Portland Valderrivas. This deal marks one of the largest self-consumption agreements signed to date in Spain, with Capital Energy committing to supply approximately 80,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) annually of clean energy generated primarily by five wind farms that the company is promoting in Cantabria.

The agreement was presented to the Cantabrian government's advisors for Development, Spatial Planning, and Environment, Roberto Media Sainz, and Industry, Employment, Innovation, and Commerce, Eduardo Arasti, by Cementos Alfa's plant director, Beatriz Malagón, and Capital Energy's Promotion Manager in Cantabria, Andrea Cebrecos.

The renewable facilities, currently being developed by Capital Energy, will have a combined capacity of about 145.5 megawatts (MW). This initiative is expected to significantly contribute to the decarbonization of Cementos Alfa's production process by reducing indirect greenhouse gas emissions.

Juan José Sánchez, CEO of Capital Energy, emphasized the agreement's alignment with the company's commitment to the progressive decarbonization of the economy and the environmental and socioeconomic well-being of Cantabria. Beatriz Malagón highlighted that this agreement would help the Mataporquera factory meet the objectives set in the Law 7/2021 on Climate Change and Energy Transition, as well as the National Integrated Energy and Climate Plan 2021-2030 (PNIEC).

This collaboration between Capital Energy and Cementos Alfa not only supports the transition to renewable energy but also fosters the development of Cantabria's green manufacturing economy and the broader goal of achieving climate neutrality.
