Lightsource BP, a renewable energy company in which BP PLC (BP.LN) holds a 43% stake, said on Wednesday that it has acquired a 300 megawatt project portfolio from Forestalia Group in Spain.

Lightsource BP said the acquisition of the assets--for which no consideration was disclosed--marked its entry into the Iberian power market. The company aims for global production of 10 gigawatts a year by 2023.

The company said that its acquisition of permit-ready areas are vital to its growth in the region.

Acquisition of the projects, split over six sites, will be financed by Lightsource BP's "innovative structures," the company said.
