During the first two months of 2019, renewables accounted for 38.3% of Spain’s power mix and wind dominated with 22.3%, Spanish grid operator Red Electrica de España (REE) said Tuesday. In February alone, renewables produced 37.6% of the country’s power, according to REE’s estimates for the month. Wind power had [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Renewable energies generated 26.3% of electricity in Spain in October, wind power 15.5%, photovoltaic 3.2 and solar thermal 2.1. Generation of the month of October of 2017 The peninsular demand for electrical energy in October is estimated at 20,145 GWh, 1.6% higher than that recorded in the same month [...]
Renewable energies generated 30.3%, wind energy 15%, solar thermal 3.4% and photovoltaic energy 3.9%. Wind energy production in September reached 2,764 GWh, up 7% on that of the same month last year, accounting for 15% of total production. 54.9% of electricity production this month came from technologies that do not [...]
In the month of August generation from renewable energy sources has represented 31% of production. By technologies, wind power production in August reached 3,275 GWh, 9.1% less than in the same month last year, accounting for 16.2% of total production, while the sources of generation have contributed during the [...]
According to the source of energy generation, 20.6% was nuclear, 18.8% of coal, 17.8% of combined cycle, 15.5% was wind, 10.8% came from the Cogeneration, 5.3% hydropower, 4.2% photovoltaic solar, 4.1% solar thermal, 1.3% of waste, and 1.6% of other renewable energy. Peninsular demand for electricity in July is estimated [...]
Renewable energies generated 37.7% of electricity in Spain in May 2017. Wind power 18.2%, solar thermal 3.4% and photovoltaic solar power 4.6%. Generation of the month of May of 2017 Peninsular demand for electricity in May is estimated at 20,155 GWh, 2.1% higher than in the same month of the [...]
Renewable energy generated 40.8% of electricity in Spain until July.
Renewable energy produced 50% of electricity in Spain in May: Wind power generated 25%, Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) 3.6% and photovoltaic solar energy 4.5%.
The wind power output was 2,708 GWh in August 2014, down 14.6%. Solar photovoltaic (PV) generated 4.2% of the total mix, and the share of concentrated solar power (CSP) plants was 4,2%.
Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) came to supply 5% of electricity generation and covered between 13 and 14 h. 8.3% of demand on July 13.
