The Canary Islands, together with the area of Tarifa, the Galician coast and the valley of the River Ebro, are the areas in Spain with the most potential for generating wind energy. In the Archipelago, this potential has been used throughout history, particularly in Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, and in recent years it has once again gained great significance.
In 1991, INALSA decided to embark on setting up a Wind Farm (Los Valles Wind Farm) for self-consumption of 5 MW, in order to improve self-supply and diversify energy supply sources, thus optimising and guaranteeing production
Se constituye la empresa "Eólicas de Lanzarote, S.A." cuyo objeto social es la explotación comercial del Parque.
The company "Eólicas de Lanzarote S.A." was set up to commercially operate the wind farm.
The AQUAMAC project, called “TECHNIQUES AND METHODS FOR SUSTAINABLE WATER MANAGEMENT IN MACRONESIA” was approved within the European Community initiative INTERREG III B, for the area Azores Islands-Madeira Island-Canary Islands, of which the Consejo Insular de Aguas de Lanzarote is a member, and INALSA is a collaborating entity.
One of the blocks of joint activities within this project is the: “Proposal of actions to optimise the energy self-sufficiency of water cycles”. This block of activities was materialised in energy audits and efficiency assessments carried out in buildings and facilities and in the application of alternative energies in water cycles.
As regards the implementation of solar energy in our facilities, our Board of Directors has recently taken the following decisions:
With the aforementioned action, INALSA will achieve the following objectives:
