Iberdrola Renovables was a subsidiary of Iberdrola, headquartered in Valencia, Spain, which included companies in the domains of renewable energy, particularly wind power. The firm was the world's largest renewable energy firm:[1] it was the world's largest owner-operator of wind farms,[2] but also operated in the solar, hydro, biomass and wave power industries.


Iberdrola Renovables was registered in Madrid following its incorporation in 2001. It started as a wholly owned business unit of Iberdrola under the name Iberenova.[3] In 2009 the company changed its registered office to Valencia. However, it still had a strong presence in Madrid and in Bilbao, its birthplace.


The company was listed on the Madrid Stock Exchange in December 2007 in an initial public offering.[4] 844,812,980 new shares were placed at a price of €5.30 each. The operation totalled €5 billion, the largest placement ever made on the Spanish market by a new company.[citation needed]

The company joined the benchmark IBEX 35 index in a February 2008 reshuffle.[5]

Merger with Iberdrola[edit]

In July 2011, Iberdrola Renovables merged with its parent company Iberdrola and is now Iberdrola's renewable energy business.[6] Minority shareholders could change their shares into Iberdrola shares at a 1 for 2 ratio, equivalent to a value of around €3 for each share of Iberdrola Renovables.
