Portugal ha autorizado la tramitación de licencias para proyectos solares que suman más de 2 GW de potencial.not in Spain

Portugal tiene un compromiso con la electricidad renovable, al contrario que España que se cortó en seco el desarrollo de su sector renovable, anulando contratos y subsidios ya contratados y casi prohibiendo el sector de autoconsumo incluso usando un Real Decreto.

El ‘suicidio renovable’ en España se explica por el alto grado de corrupción y la influencia del sector de energía fósil…….

Después del éxito relativo de los acuerdos de París sobre la emergencia climática mundial y la bajada de precios muchos países  están invertiendo, por fin, en energías renovables.

Durante mayo de este año, ‘The Guardian’ informó que Portugal ‘funcionaba exclusivamente con electricidad de energía renovable durante cuatro días consecutivos en un hito de energía limpia revelada por el análisis de datos  de la red nacional de energía…….

El consumo de electricidad en el país estaba totalmente cubierta por energía solar, eólica e hidráulica durante 107 horas que duró desde las 6:45 el sábado 7 de mayo a 17:45 el miércoles siguiente….

La noticia llega justo después de la firma por Portugal y Marruecos de dos acuerdos de cooperación que se centran en el desarrollo de las energías renovables en el país africano.

Portugal Processes Licenses For 2 GW Of Solar Electricity, Sans Subsidies

July 26th, 2016 by    In notable solar news, Portugal has authorized the processing of licenses for solar projects which total more than 2 GW of potential.

Specifically, 180 MW of solar projects have presently been authorized under the existing market system in the nation’s southern region. Additionally, 68 licenses for solar projects are being processed, which total more than 2 GW of potential.

The news comes on the heels of Portugal and Morocco signing two cooperation agreements focusing on the development of renewable energy in the African country.

Currently Portugal’s single electrical interconnection is with Spain. But now the Portuguese government plans on conducting a viability study concerning an electrical interconnection with Morocco

In January of this year the European Investment Bank (EIB) made public it had analyzed grant funding for various PV projects in Portugal, including one project by Expoentfokus featuring four PV installations with a combined capacity of 165 MW. The cost of the project was estimated at €130 million and EIB states on its website that it is in the phase of analyzing grant funding for roughly €65 million.

In a report three international development and financial institutions, the EIB states the private sector can be an important driver for growth and rising prosperity in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). The report indicates innovation and growth have been constrained by barriers to trade and a scarcity of appropriately trained workers.

Ideally, agreements such as the recent one with Morocco may lead to removing the “disconnect between firms and formal financing channels.”

The EIB is also said to be considering financing for two PV plants which total 100 MW of capacity located in the region of Alentejo, which it made public last April. The cost of this project is estimated at a total of €100 million and EIB is considering providing €50 million in financing, according to pv-magazine.

Portugal commitment to renewable electricity

During May of this year, The Guardian reported Portugal ran lights with just renewable energy for four consecutive days in a clean energy milestone revealed by data analysis of national energy network figures.

Electricity consumption in the country was fully covered by solar, wind and hydro power in a 107-hour run lasting from 6.45am on Saturday 7 May until 5.45pm the following Wednesday.
