Under their "Green Mobility Solution", which was launched in 2010, Iberdrola provides customers with the opportunity to purchase an electric vehicle, a 100% renewable energy supply and the system required to charge the vehicle.

The regions of Castile and Leˇn; Valencia; the Basque Country; Murcia; Madrid; Andalusia; Catalonia and Extremadura are also in negotiations with Iberdrola over their useage of the scheme, as are a number of Government departments on a national level.

Talks are also being held with a number of major car manufacturers, notably Peugeot, Mitsubishi, Opel and Seat.

Iberdrola has also introduced a new role in the energy sector of "Recharging Manager", following the amendment of the Electricity Sector Act of April 2010 and the subsequent implementing regulations in Royal Decree 647/2011. This basically allows recharging managers to both consume and resell electricity, for the purpose of recharging an electric vehicle.
