The Spanish Government has already sent the draft of the Integrated National Energy and Climate Plan to the EU Commission, with a very well prepared report in which, logically, the Concentrated Solar Power plants already appear in the forecast of the generation mix by 2030. The value proposition of [...]
Protermosolar confirms that in 2030 the contribution of renewables to electricity generation in Spain could be 84% at a cost of less than € 5c / kWh
Protermosolar incorporates the 2018 data to its report and corroborates the importance of concentrated solar power in electrical decarbonization. The balanced distribution between photovoltaic and concentrated solar power would allow to supply the demand also at night and reduce the amount of discharges, all at a lower cost than [...]
Iberdrola S.A. (IBDSF.PK) agreed Friday to sell its solar thermal power plant in Spain to Ence EnergÃa, which involves the sale of 90% of the shares in Iberdrola EnergÃa Solar de Puertollano, S.A., the company which owns the 50-megawatt (MW) solar thermal generation unit. The transaction amounts to 181.1 million [...]
Renewable energies generated 41.8% of electricity from January to September in Spain: wind energy 19.4%, concentrated solar power thermal 2.2% and photovoltaic 3.3%. Generation of the month of September 2018 The peninsular demand for electricity in September is estimated at 20,821 GWh, 3.4% higher than that registered in the [...]
The Concentrated Solar Power is the renewable one, between those that take advantage of the sun or the wind, that more electricity generates per MW installed since May in Spain
More concentrated solar power (CSP) with storage in the system would reduce the contribution of natural gas cycles and coal, which would lower the price of electricity in the wholesale market. Solar thermal energy is renewable, compared to wind energy and photovoltaic, which generates more electricity per MW installed since [...]
The concentrated solar power marks historical record of generation when reaching the 899 GWh in July in Spain
The concentrated solar power plants has generated electricity for 24 hours a day on the 31st day of July, obtaining the generation record above 100 MW over 723 hours. The concentrated solar power has set a record for monthly electricity generation, reaching 899 GWh in July, according to the REE [...]
The General Meeting of the Spanish Association for the Promotion of the Solar Thermal Industry (Protermosolar), has re-elected unanimously president of Protermosolar for a period of two years. Luis Crespo, who from 2008 to 2016 served as general secretary, was elected president of Protermosolar in 2016. Luis Crespo is a [...]
Renewables contributed 43.9% in Spain in May: wind 17.2%, solar thermal 2.7% and photovoltaic 4.1%. Generation of the month of May 2018 The peninsular demand for electric power in May is estimated at 20,044 GWh, 1% lower than that registered in the same month of the previous year. If [...]
The solar thermal plant has also reached a record of contribution to the energy mix, reaching 2.2% of the total electricity generation in Spain and has significantly increased its efficiency by boosting demand coverage above 10% in specific hourly periods. Solar thermal energy has increased its production of electricity [...]
Renewable energies generated 33.7 of electricity in 2017 in Spain. Wind power accounted for 19.2%, solar thermal 2.2% and photovoltaic 3.2%. Generation from January to December 2017 In December, renewable energies generated 33.2 of electricity in 2017 in Spain. Wind accounted for 24.3%, solar thermal for 0.6% and photovoltaic for [...]
Half of the energy needs in Europe are destined to heat and cold needs, both residential and industrial. More than 65% of these industrial needs in Spain are covered by fossil fuels. Concentrated solar energy saves costs and reduces emissions. The Concentra Solar Technology Platform, financed by the Ministry of [...]
Renewable energy generated 40.8% of electricity in Spain until July.
Proceeds will be used to reduce corporate debt and reinforce its balance sheet.
