    1. 1. Innovation in Utilities?©IBERDROLA
    2. 2. Iberdrola, who we are? Assets worth: €93Bn Installed capacity nearly 45 GW Hydro 10 GW CCGT 13 GW Renewable 12 GW Thermal 5GW Nuclear 3 GW Cogen 1 GW Leading wind producer worldwide: 12.5 GW installed and a pipeline over 61GW Over 27 million customers Electricity 24 MM Gas 3 MM 32.000 employees in more than 40 countries worldwide R&D and innovation effort ~ 150 M€ / year
    3. 3. Iberdrola, who we are?... In the US today + + (RG&E, NYSEG, CMP) Installed capacity (MW) 5,598 Wind installed capacity (MW) 4,634 Wind projects pipeline (MW) 25,000 Electricity customers (M) 2.5 Gas customers (M) 1 Thermal Gas Storage Hydro Present in 23 U.S. States and Canada Wind Distribution
    4. 4. Iberdrola, who we are? Some History...More than a 100 Years ofExperience... Iberdrola started off hydro power plants… And hydro is still one important activity for RG&E… + Sustainable energy is in our DNA as a company!
    5. 5. Innovation, what are we talking about?Thousands of definitions... It´s not always about the product/service, but it´s always about the value and the sustainable results!
    6. 6. Innovation, in a commodity business? Iberdrola offers a mature product, which is electricity / gas… kWh is a commodity! The difference is not in the product • Image  We are green, sustainable,… • Business Model  Renewables, combined cycles,… • Vertical Integration  Our own engineering, gas storage,… • Added Services  Quality, maintenance,… Efficiency is the driver of innovation
    7. 7. Innovation, how we implement it? (I) Governing Model of Iberdrola  Decentralized Resources are limited  Open
    8. 8. Innovation, how we implement it? (II) Governing Model of Iberdrola  Decentralized R&D&Innovation Projects are developed within the business units, close to business!
    9. 9. Innovation, how we implement it? (III)Resources are limited  Open IBERDROLA is aware that this is an effort that we cannot undertake alone. Therefore, we have an open innovation model where it is essential that we collaborate with: Companies, universities, technological centres, industrial organizations and public institutions through programmes and agreements. There are agreements with more than 70 universities in Spain, Europe and the US to collaborate in research activities. Some initiatives that involve collaboration with research departments and universities: In the US: EPRI (Electric Power Research Institute), GTI (Gas Technology Institute),... European Industrial Initiatives (EEI), EIT_KIC Innoenergy CIGRE Iberdrola´s Innovation Network
