Spain has made significant progress in sustainable mobility during 2023. The work to have legislation that encourages investment, the backing of European funds and the willingness of the private sector are key on the road to decarbonization.
In this sense, Iberdrola has become one of the important players in the energy transition in the Iberian territory.
It recently formed an alliance with the Business Association for the Development and Promotion of Electric Mobility (Aedive), which aims to integrate the entire value chain of road freight transport in Spain to reduce emissions in all activities related to heavy transport.
On that occasion, Iberdrola joins Cabify to promote sustainable mobility through a strategic agreement to boost the electrification of VTC freelancers and cab drivers collaborating with the platform, in order to facilitate their access to public charging infrastructures of the energy company.
The agreement has a duration of four years and ensures that it offers a series of discounts applicable to more than 2,200 recharging points distributed throughout Spain with guaranteed origin of 100% renewable electricity.
Cabify‘s collaborating partners will be able to access an advantageous price on recharges made in Iberdrola’s public network. Through the energy company’s Public Recharge application, they will be able to locate the equipment and know its status at all times.
In addition, they will have special conditions on the price of private recharging equipment for installation in their homes in the case of self-employed VTC or cab drivers and the same conditions in company points in the case of fleets of more than one car.
The agreement reached with Iberdrola is part of Cabify‘s Sustainable Business Strategy, which seeks to promote the decarbonization of collaborating fleets with agreements with manufacturers and other companies that favor electrification with the aim that 100% of trips on the platform in Spain will be in zero-emission vehicles by 2025.
For its part, Iberdrola has signed more than 60 agreements with public and private organizations to promote and lead the transition to sustainable mobility and the electrification of transport.
