During the Conference on the Mediterranean Solar Plan yesterday, the Director General of the Institute of Energy Diversification and Saving, Enrique Jiménez Larrea, presented "Renovables Made in Spain", a project which the IDEA explains reviews the key factors that have led to Spain positioning itself at the forefront of these technologies, and includes over a hundred companies and national research centres that are particularly representative of the sector.
"Renovables Made in Spain" informs the world about the significant penetration of renewable energies in Spain, the high level of development of these technologies, and the leadership of Spanish companies and organisations that has made this possible. The project, which was conducted in collaboration with Energías Renovables (Renewable Energy Magazine’s Spanish sister publication), comprises a leaflet and catalogue of Spanish renewable energy companies and research centres, and a website.
The leaflet summarises the degree of development of each of these technologies in Spain and the legislation that has underpinned this growth. The first few pages of the catalogue, meanwhile, include the same information, leading on to a presentation of the most representative Spanish companies and research centres in the wind, solar photovoltaic, solar thermal, solar thermal electric, biogas, biofuel, biomass, hydroelectric, geothermal, and marine energy segments.
As well as replicating this information, the “Renovables Made in Spain” website also provides latest news on the industry, plus a free monthly electronic newsletter containing the most noteworthy items of news, which is available to anyone wishing to subscribe to this service. The website is available in Spanish and English, while the company catalogue and leaflet are printed in Spanish and English, as well as in Arabic.
"Renovables Made in Spain" will be presented and distributed at national and international forums to ensure that "the work and efforts of the entire Spanish renewables sector is known – and recognised –internationally". In this way, concludes the IDAE, it is also hoped that the project "will reinforce the international position of the Spanish renewables industry".
