Spain is planning its next tender for renewable energies, which is expected to take place in July. Only photovoltaic and wind power projects will compete in the auction. Just like in the last tender, wind power will probably be awarded a large quantity of the projects again, as the Spanish government leaves the rules for the tender unchanged.
2016 was the strongest year ever for renewable energies. The growth of the PV sector consisted of a remarkable 71 GW and exceeded that of wind energy for the first time since 2013.
