Spain added 780 MW of photovoltaic power capacity and 446 MW of wind power capacity in the first half of 2020, according to news from the Spanish grid operator Red Electrica de Espana (REE) published on www.guangfu.bjx.com.cn.
The photovoltaic capacity added during this period was mainly contributed by the commissioning of Iberdrola 500 MW solar power project.
Spain's solar photovoltaic power generation hit 1792 GWh by June, and the annual growth rate reached 92%, showed data from REE.
In June, photovoltaic power generation accounted for 9.2% of the total power generation in the country, setting a new record. The proportion reached 6.1% over the period of January-June.
Spain's photovoltaic installed capacity posted the largest growth among the European countries in 2019, reaching 4.7 GW.
As of the end of June, Spain's cumulative photovoltaic installed capacity reached 9.693 GW.
Renewable energy, especially solar and wind power, has bright prospects in Spain, as the country has set a goal that 100% of its power system will be supported by renewable energy by 2050.
To achieve this goal, the Spanish government has vigorously promoted renewable energy and set ambitious goals in construction of photovoltaic and wind power generation projects.
According to the plan, the total installed capacity of solar-thermal power stations will reach 4.8 GW by 2025 and 7.3 GW by 2030 in Spain.
