MADRID Feb 26 (Reuters) - Spanish renewable energy firm Acciona has hired Lazard to find a buyer for up to 49 pct of its wind power assets outside Spain, a source with knowledge of the matter said on Wednesday.

Investment banks have had the prospectus on the sale of 2,300 megawatts of wind power - including assets in the United States, Australia, Canada, South Africa, Mexico and India among other countries - since December.

Acciona declined to comment. (Reporting by Tracy Rucinski; Editing by Julien Toyer)
