The company has commercial operations in 20 countries on the five continents, and has been present in Brazil since 2021. It works exclusively in renewable energy, with activities in wind, solar photovoltaic, solar thermal, hydro and biomass generation.

As a result of more than 20 years of experience in the renewable energy sector, the company offers reliable and efficient solutions based on the most advanced technologies, such as green hydrogen and solar floating plants.

The company also sells 100% renewable energy on the electricity markets and through bilateral contracts with a wide range of customers, with a special focus on companies that want to reduce their carbon footprint.

In 2021 we entered the market in Brazil, a priority country for our growth pipeline in the coming years.

My role is to translate the ESG strategies of the company for our projects in the country, being able to develop our projects with respect to the environment and the people around us and leaving a legacy beyond the generation of clean energy itself.

I am passionate about what I do, and I feel that wherever I have been, I have made a difference and come out different, always with positive exchanges and mutual growth.

The environmental and social area goes beyond a profession, it connects me to my truest lifestyle and ideals.

I try in practice to contribute to the world that I believe in and to the revolution that I feel inside of me.

  • What other women have inspired you in your professional career?

I am the result of all the women I have crossed on my professional path and throughout the years I have lived, it is difficult to name names among so many, they all contributed to my growth and improvement, bringing me to where I am and pushing me to reach where I still want to go.

During my professional career I have also been encouraged to grow professionally, regardless of my gender. I recently joined ACCIONA Energía, where I have found several inspiring female colleagues.
