España es quizás el mercado solar europeo más atractivo en la actualidad. Nuestro país parece tomar conciencia de su posición como localización europea con más horas de sol año y se ha lanzado definitivamente al desarrollo de nuevas instalaciones fotovoltaicas, tanto grandes plantas procedentes de las adjudicaciones de las subastas, proyectos PPA, plantas ‘merchant’, así como generación distribuida a través de autoconsumo, especialmente en el sector comercial e industrial.

The covid-19 pandemic is delaying new commercial solar project development and construction. Across North America, many facilities powered by solar have reduced or zero occupancy. Oil prices went negative for the first time in history.   Energy managers watching all of this unfold wonder what these ripple effects mean for investments in renewables.

The prospect of a decarbonised energy system is now tantalisingly close, pushed forward by an infusion of renewables into the grid, the falling cost of wind and solar PV power, and advances in energy storage and smart digitalisation.   A modernised grid could deliver more from less, at substantially lower cost, but it would also require a rethink of market structures and a system that incentivises suppliers to sell customers volume, leading to waste.
