Spain Renewables Report

BMI View:   Our view that renewable energy expansion in Spain would slow significantly is playing out, as just one wind turbine was reportedly installed in Spain during the first half of 2014. The regulatory environment for renewables remains extremely challenging for those companies operating in the industry , and domestic utilities continue to be hit hard.

A number of regulatory changes over 2013 and the beginning of 2014 have rocked Spain's renewables industry. Coupled with the country's depressed economic picture, these reforms have dented investor confidence and created difficulties for renewable energy operators. 

Recent developments include:

  • The Spanish Wind Energy Association announced in July 2014 that just one wind turbine was installed during the first half of 2014, amounting to just 80KWh of capacity.

  • It was reported on February 2014 that UAE renewable energy developer  Masdar had filed a legal case against Spain through the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) in relation to the government's renewable energy reforms. More recently, US company NextEra also filed a complaint through the ICSID. According to Bloomberg, this is the forth complaint of its kind.

  • Spain-based renewable energy company Ence Energia y Celulosa announced in August 2014 that it plans to build 210MW of biomass plants in Canary Islands, Spain. The company will spend EUR546mn to set up three biomass stations of 70MW each. Construction work is likely to start in 2015, and completion is expected in 2016.

  • Iberdrola 's net profits, revenues and EBITDA all fell in H114. Profits took the largest hit, falling by more than 13% year-on-year to EUR1503mn. This drop can be primarily attributed to the impact of power sector reforms in its domestic market of Spain.

  • It was reported by Spanish grid operator Red Eléctrica de España that wind power accounted for around 21% of Spain's total electricity generation in 2013 - the highest...
