  • 4. 1. Smart GridsSmart grids are essentially distribution networksequipped with technology for providing electricitysuppliers and users with information to optimise theuse of energy 4
  • 5. A Smart Grid is atechnologicalenhancement of thepower distributionsystem, combiningtraditional facilities withstate-of-the-artmonitoring, informationand telecommunicationtechnology 5
  • 6. 2. Legal basisDirective 2009/72/EC of the European Parliament states that80% of consumers shall be equipped with intelligentmetering systems by 2020Under Royal Decree 1110/07, Spanish law states that allmeters will be equipped with hourly discrimination andremote management technology prior to December 31,2018Smart Technologies require SMART LEGISLATIONBoth Iberdrola and the Basque Government believe thatcompliance with this legislation represents an opportunity toconduct a much more ambitious and far-reaching project 6
  • 7. 3.Overall Objective of Bidelek Sareak ProjectThe Basque Government (through EVE) and Iberdrola, on thebasis of their common interest in the matter, have taken theinitiative to equip both Bilbao and the town centre ofPortugalete with smart grids to ensure an efficient, safe andsustainable power supply, with a view to extending thisinitiative to other areas of the Basque Country in the future. 7
  • 8. 4.Partners’ ContributionIn addition to financial support, EVE will contribute its visionand know-how on energy saving and efficiency andimprovements to demand management for end users.Iberdrola will lead the Smart Grid Projectfrom the technological perspective,with a view to ensuring that certain selectedareas are recognised as reference areas onaccount of the quality and efficiency of their electricitygrids, both on a national and international scale.Joint investment will be in the order of 60,000,000 euros overthe next 3 years. 8
  • 9. 5.Project Objectives (I) I. Objectives for users • To improve the quality of power supply • To improve customer service with respect to incident management and modifications to contracts • To provide information and enable customers to manage consumption and invoicing in a more efficient manner • Invoicing based on real meter measurements 9
  • 10. 5. Project Objectives (II) II. Objectives for society at large and in a social and economic context • Greater safety level in facilities and operations • Greater integration of renewable energies, small power plants and of electric vehicles • The development of an innovative project in new technologies, validating and extending the use of these technologies to other activity areas and making this a reference project worldwide • To generate investment and financial activity in the field of energy-related infrastructure • To reduce CO₂ emission levels by improving energy efficiency 10
  • 11. 5. Project Objectives (III) III. Objectives for the power distribution system • To progress towards compliance with the regulation on the replacement of electricity meters • To improve service quality and reduce network losses • Active and optimal operational management of grid resources and improved planning 11
  • 12. 6. Investment and employment of Bidelek Sareak ProjectProjects on a national levelInvestment : 5,500 million eurosCreation of around 25,000 jobs for highlyqualified personnelBidelek Sareak ProjectInvestment: 60 million eurosCreation of around 300 jobs for highlyqualified personnel 12
  • 13. 7.Business Development• Iberdrola as a driver of projects focused on modernising electricity grids• Many Basque companies with the capacity to supply the required technology• An opportunity for Basque companies to boost their position as leaders in the fieldof technology, positioning the Basque Country as the “Electronic Power Valley” ofSmart Grids• Other leading industrial sectors in the Basque Country (automobile, renewableenergy, ICT’s, home appliances, etc.) can also benefit from this projectSMART GRIDS is designed to be a reference project worldwide and a driverproject for energy companies and infrastructure 13
