ACCIONA has secured a 10-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with CleanCo, Queensland's newest public electricity company, for 400MW of the MacIntyre Wind Farm's power production. The project will also power Sun Metals Corporation, a Korea Zinc Co. subsidiary in Australia. helping the metals group meet its target of obtaining 1
In addition to the MacIntyre Wind Farm, ACCIONA will build the 103-MW Karara Wind Farm, owned by CleanCo. Together, the MacIntyre and Karara complex will generate sufficient power for nearly 700,000 homes and avoid roughly 3 million tpy of CO2 emissions.

One expert who has been working at the heart of this topic is Gonzalo Pinto Quijano, an architect specializing in sustainable buildings at Acciona. As part of the EU project BRESAER, he has helped design and test a pioneering lightweight structural mesh to boost the energy-performance building facades.
The BRESAER building mesh system is modular and flexible, allowing it to adapt to different climatic conditions and architectural constraints. The lightweight structural mesh allows other components to be easily integrated into an energy efficient building facade .

Acciona will initially perform a baseline audit to ascertain current energy consumption. The buildings will subsequently be monitored to obtain energy consumption data in real time. The captured data will be organized and processed at the ACCIONA Building Control Centre where it will be analyzed around the clock. The resulting information will enable the city to respond to alerts of anomalous consumption and provide information with which to enhance operations and detect inefficient consumption patterns.
Acciona will draw on the data for measures such as the implementation of specific efficiency measures, the swapping-out of obsolete and inefficient items of equipment, and the installation of control and automation devices. (Source: Acciona, Construction Index, 25 Feb., 2019)
