By 2020 we want

We want to continue to grow steadily, in a balanced and profitable way. The Strategic Agenda for 2016-2020 sets the goals and paths we have chosen to achieve success:

  • Focused growth with an average net investment of €1.4 billion per year.
  • A 3% annual average growth of the gross operating result.
  • Continued financial deleveraging to achieve a threefold increase in our net debt/gross operating profit ratio (EBITDA) in 2020
  • Maintaining a low risk profile, with an outlook that 76% of the installed capacity will be renewable.
  • The percentage of gross operating profits generated by regulated business activities or long-term power sales contracts is expected to reach 75% in 2020
  • Improving efficiency to generate €700 million in savings.
  • The operating costs/gross margin ratio is expected to drop to 26%.
  • Assuring shareholders that net profits per share are expected to grow an average 4% per year.
