Wind power will exceed 61,000 GWh while photovoltaic is the fourth most productive technology with close to 28,000 GWh
Spain continues to demonstrate its renewable potential. Forecasts indicate that wind and photovoltaic energy could close the year breaking their own generation records. Specifically, the force of the wind is expected to exceed 61,000 GWh, which would mean around 1% more than the figure registered in 2021, according to data from the electrical system operator, Red Eléctrica. For its part, photovoltaics would end 2022 with a production 33% higher than that of the previous year (close to 28,000 GWh).
In this way, photovoltaic panels would be positioned for the first time as the fourth generation mix technology (representing 10%). This is clear from Red Eléctrica’s estimates which, like every year, advances the main magnitudes of the system, based on preliminary data as of December 20.
For Beatriz Corredor, president of Redeia, the parent company of Red Eléctrica, “this evolution of wind and photovoltaic energy reinforces Spain’s position as the renewable engine of the European Union. The path of ecological transition is the only possible path to a strong and autonomous ‘electric’ union”.
