After installing around 4.6 GW in 2019, Spain returns to the continent’s top solar markets and is the clear market leader in Europe. This session will talk about the development of the sector in the last year in Spain, and will discuss its perspectives, market development, challenges, barriers, and new opportunities of growth.
Self-consumption can facilitate the integration of renewables onto the grid and lower the overall costs of the energy system. The Clean Energy Package encourages the consumer to be at the centre of the energy transition. Several actors have now the right to consume, store and sell self-generated electricity and participate in flexibility or energy efficiency schemes. This session will present different experiences of individual and collective self-consumption frameworks across Spain and the different actors involved. It describes best practices and provides recommendation for the future of self-consumption.
Corporates are increasingly concerned about their impact on the environment and climate change and thus they seek to reduce carbon emissions while controlling the costs associated with their electricity consumption. This session we will present the corporate sourcing market of renewable energy in Spain, explore how corporates can act as off-takers, what are the common roadblocks, what can be achieved in terms of economic growth and jobs, and what can other countries learn from the experience of Spain.
Before closing a deal for corporates to source their operations with renewable energy, banks and financiers need to bring the money necessary to realise the project. This session will present the point of view of banks and financiers when assessing a corporate PPA, from describing the financing options available to assessing the bankability of the off-taker.
