Solar Focus | Meet the Surging Solar Power Needs in Spain

4 PM (Beijing) | 9 AM (Madrid), March 30, 2023


Spain is poised to become a significant growth engine for solar and wind capacity as the European Union seeks to move away from fossil fuels. According to a research note by Rystad Energy, Spain’s stable power prices, diversified gas supply, and strong outlook for renewable energy will aid it in navigating Europe’s energy crisis.

Spain is expected to install 4 GW of solar capacity this year, boasting the largest solar pipeline in Europe. Industry group SolarPower Europe’s latest baseline forecast indicates the country will install an additional 19 GW of new capacity between 2022 and 2025. As of October, over 100 GW of projects had received grid approval, with a further 23 GW awaiting permission.

On March 30, Solarbe Global will invite experts from S&P Global Commodity Insights, JA Solar and Aquila Capital to discuss the opportunities and challenges in solar PV deployment in Spain.

Key takeaways

  • Supply chain and local production
  • Development outlook in the next few years
  • Major obstacles of installation in different scenarios
