According to the company, the portfolio comprises four wind parks with a capacity of 151 MW and a solar park of 20 MWp. The projects are currently under construction.
It has been informed that all these projects will be commissioned between the second quarter of 2022 to the first quarter of 2023.
According to Verbund, in addition to this portfolio, three more hybrid photovoltaic projects with a combined output of 80 MW are being developed in southern Spain.

Verbund aims to enhance its solar and onshore wind capacity to account for between 20% and 25% of its overall generation capacity in 2030.
