While last week’s auction of installation licences for 3.000 MW of renewable energy was very successful, many companies ended up not being awarded anything. So the government has decided to hold another auction with similar characteristics. But this time it will only be for renewable and photovoltaic energy.
spain renewables auctions
The Energy Ministry this week held its macro-auction to award installation licences for up to 3.000 MW of renewables plants in Spain. The auction represents an investment of over 3 billion euros and Forestalia, Gas Natural and Endesa ended up with the majority of the MW.
There is no question about the importance of the renewables auction due to take place between now and June if we take into account that installed renewables power in Spain (excepting hydraulic) is 31.216 Mw. So in other words, the new installations will increase this energy park by 10%.
