Growth engine

In recent years, the wind energy sector has experienced substantial growth, reducing the emission of 29 million tonnes of CO2.

In 2020, the wind energy sector accounted for 0.30% of Spain’s GDP with 3,106.4 million euros, employing more than 27,600 professionals.

There are 1,260 wind farms installed in Spain, totalling 27,446 MW, equivalent to 25% of the total power installed in the Spanish energy system.

Challenges

Wind energy is presented as one of the fundamental pillars in the Energy Transition, offering a great capacity for growth and innovation.

Juan Virgilio Márquez, Director General of AEE, highlights that one of the main challenges for the wind energy sector in 2022 is the evolution of the design of auctions to focus them on the value provided by the technologies and not on price.

Another challenge is to maintain the annual rate of wind farm installation required by the National Energy and Climate Plan 2030.

Finally, the biggest challenge lies in launching the first hybrid farms and laying the groundwork for H2 Renewable.
