Solar Market Parity Spain


14 March 2019 /// Madrid

Connecting the right players on the verge of a solar (r)evolution

In the coming years, solar will become cost-competitive with conventional technologies and reach the mythical market parity. This will open the doors for a solar (r)evolution. What will be the new business models?

Spain, once the global frontrunner in solar energy, experienced a major setback in 2013 when the government retroactively eliminated the feed-in-tariffs that allowed that initial solar boom to reach records levels. For the next 5 years, solar energy in Spain had essentially been dormant with an unsupportive government. However, with the advent of solar market parity, the Spanish dragon has awoken. With a target of 35% of renewable penetration by 2030 and a multi-GW target, the sun is again shining bright on Spain. 

Key characteristics

200+ high-level attendees from national and international developers and investors to manufacturers and consultants

Explore and witness the resurgence of the Spanish PV sector

Meet the right people with the right tools: networking 2.0

Taking place in Europe’s sunniest and first pioneer market: Spain

Spain Country Report

 

The aim of this country report is to provide a comprehensive overview of the new solar boom in Spain, along with key insights into its PV sector, regulatory framework, energy auctions, solar projects and the emergence of power purchase agreements (PPAs). Furthermore, this report aims to highlight the key challenges and opportunities for the future of Spain's solar sector, especially with its renewable energy targets for 2020.
