Acciona Energy is negotiating with the Chinese group Envision, one of the main energy and technology companies in the world, the development of a project in Spain for the manufacture of batteries and lithium mining in Navalmoral de la Mata (Cáceres). The president of the company, José Manuel Entrecanales, already announced at the company’s last shareholders’ meeting, held in early April, that he was in “advanced” talks with a Chinese company to install a facility with these characteristics. According to the newspaper from Extremadura Todaythe project will reach an investment of 2,500 million euros and will create 3,000 direct jobs and up to 12,000 indirect jobs.

Acciona Energy sources consulted by Europa Press have refused to make any comment on the matter. According to published information, this project is participating in the PERTE of the electric and connected vehicle, whose call set June 3 as the deadline to present projects.

This same week, the Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, Reyes Maroto, has indicated that there is a possibility that new gigafactories will arrive in Spain within the framework of PERTE, in the style of the battery plant that the Volkswagen Group will install in Sagunto (Valencia ), which will have a maximum capacity of 40 GWh and a workforce of more than 3,000 people, after investing around 3,000 million euros. Recently, the third vice president of the Government and minister for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, Teresa Ribera, also stated that Extremadura “is perfectly well positioned to host” a lithium battery factory.

Similar projects in Europe

Envision is already undertaking other similar projects in different countries, such as the United Kingdom or France, with other large partners in the automotive field such as Nissan or Renault, with million-dollar investments in both countries. Acciona’s participation approximates the sale of the battery cells to Silence, the electric motorcycle manufacturer controlled by the services group.

The Junta de Extremadura has invited caution and “feet on the ground” about the possible location of this gigafactory in Navalmoral de la Mata, and will decide on the project when there is an “official position” by the investment group of The initiative.

He knows in depth all the sides of the coin.


The president of the Diputación de Cáceres, Carlos Carlos Rodríguez, has assessed in a “very positive” way the possibility of installing a gigafactory of batteries for electric vehicles in Navalmoral, since it would contribute to establishing population in rural areas, not only in the region, but throughout the province.
