In 2023, Spain has marked a milestone in the history of renewable energies. With a significant focus on wind and photovoltaic energy, the country has demonstrated a firm commitment to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly energy future. In this article, we will explore Spain’s key achievements in the renewable energy sector over the past year.
Wind Energy Leads the Way:
Wind energy has been a dominant force in Spain’s energy landscape, generating 23.5% of electricity in 2023. This achievement underscores the importance of wind in the national energy mix.
Simultaneously, photovoltaic energy has shown impressive growth, contributing 14% to the energy mix. This increase reflects the potential of solar energy in Spain. Learn more about our initiatives in solar energy here.
A Historic December:
December 2023 was a record month for renewable energies, with 54.6% of electricity production coming from renewable sources. This month closed a year of unprecedented achievements in the sector.
Renewable energies reached a milestone with a 50.4% share in the national energy mix, exceeding all expectations. In turn, peninsular electricity demand experienced a growth of 3.7% in December, indicating an increasing trend in energy consumption.
Commitment to the Environment:
An impressive 78% of December’s electricity production was free of CO2 emissions, reaffirming Spain’s commitment to environmental protection.
These achievements are just the beginning. Spain continues to advance towards a greener and more sustainable energy future.
