Smart grids


  • The Iberdrola Group has surpassed 10 million smart meters installed in Spain.
  • The company has already upgraded 95% of all of its meters with subscribed power up to 15 kilowatts.
  • Likewise, Iberdrola has already adapted some 67,000 transformer substations throughout Spain.

The STAR Project (Network Remote Management and Automation System) is an ambitious initiative of the Iberdrola Group that aims to transform technology in the field of smart grids.

This project, which represents a total investment by the company in our country of more than 2 billion euros, will be completed in 2018. Over 10.6 million meters will be replaced and around 80,000 transformer centres will be adapted.

The Iberdrola Group, which is carrying out this project in the 10 autonomous regions where it has distribution networks, is one of the first companies in the world to reach a significant volume of installed and connected smart meters. Furthermore, it is adapting its distribution network by incorporating real-time supervision and automation.

Technological evolution of the distribution system

The smart grid is a technological evolution of the energy distribution system that combines traditional installations with modern monitoring technologies and information and telecommunications systems. It will offer a wider range of services to customers, improve supply quality, meet the demand for electric power required by society in the future and achieve an optimal power distribution management.

The STAR Project combines compliance with the legal obligation of remote management development with an additional, major investment for improving the service provided and for integrating many innovations into the power grid. Thanks to the STAR Project, Iberdrola is one of the most advanced companies in the world in smart grid deployment.
