Renewables price support revised in Spain

Government boosts subsidies for most technologies in bid to double sector’s share of energy

The Spanish industry ministry has tabled plans to increase subsidies for most types of renewable energy.  The changes are meant to help make further progress towards the government’s goal of doubling renewables’ share of primary energy consumption to 12% by 2010.  However, wind power support would fall from 2010.  Spanish renewable producers’ association APPA warned that the share of renewables was actually declining due to rising demand for electricity and disappointing growth in some renewables sectors.  See industry ministry, and draft law, plus APPA, and its proposals.
