14 March 2019 /// Madrid
Spain, once the global frontrunner in solar energy, experienced a major setback in 2013 when the government retroactively eliminated the feed-in-tariffs that allowed that initial solar boom to reach records levels. For the next 5 years, solar energy in Spain had essentially been dormant with an unsupportive government. However, with the advent of solar market parity, the Spanish dragon has awoken. With a target of 35% of renewable penetration by 2030 and a multi-GW target, the sun is again shining bright on Spain.
The 1st edition of Solar Market Parity kicked off with a bang this past 5th of June with all the required ingredients: an excitement in the air about the prospects of subsidy-free solar, a balanced program, a diverse set of attendees and networking time.
