Barcelona, 22 November 2020. Endesa, the Iberian Peninsula's leading electrical utility, and Cellnex, the European leader in the telecommunications infrastructure sector, have signed a long-term bilateral Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) making Endesa the preferred supplier of 100% of Cellnex's energy in Spain for the next ten years.
This relationship of trust between both companies works both ways, as Cellnex has been declared Endesa's preferred network management supplier, as agreed and signed by the CEOs of both companies, José Bogas for Endesa, and Tobías Martínez for Cellnex. In the words of José Bogas, 'the strength of our collaboration with Cellnex makes us partners, far beyond the natural relationships between suppliers or providers. Speaking as partners with a company of Cellnex's international stature represents a very important challenge for Endesa that requires us to maintain a level of excellence in all our processes towards sustainability, decarbonisation and digitalisation.'
Cellnex CEO Tobías Martínez underscores 'the significance of an agreement that reinforces our partnership with Endesa in energy supply while also committing to specific objectives in the area of renewable energy and promoting the energy transition that allows us to achieve the objectives of reducing our carbon footprint and our impact on climate change. In this regard, it is worth remembering Cellnex's commitment to the Science Based Target (SBT) and reducing emissions to keep the increase in global temperatures below 1.5ºC.'
