The energy storage market in Spain expects great growth in the coming years. With the goal to switch its electricity system entirely to renewable sources by 2050, Spain expects renewable capacity to represent 74% by 2030, and storage to achieve an additional power of 6 GW. This is a huge opportunity for companies; however, there’s still a lot of uncertainty around storage.
To get a deeper understanding of the energy storage scenario in Spain, ATA Insights organised the fourth edition of RENMAD Almacenamiento, on March 29-30 this year in Toledo, Spain. The theme of the event was How to promote, finance, build and operate profitable storage projects in Spain’.
With more than 400 attendees and 60 presentations across two days, the event brought together industry leaders and key stakeholders to network and discussed on the market scenario, changes in the sector, shared ideas and real project learnings and more.
The event focused on the following topics:
Sterling and Wilson Renewable Energy participated in a panel discussion at the event.
