LONDON (ICIS) – Power purchase agreements (BPA) are expected to play an integral role in filling new Spanish renewable energy potential online in the coming years, driven by a strong appetite among companies for deals bilateral with renewable manufacturers.
On Monday, property management company Brooke Energy announced the acquisition of 20 solar photovoltaic projects in Spain from Spanish power manufacturer Optenergy. The new 1GW solar capacity is expected to come online in the first quarter of 2024, Brooke Energy told ICIS, and PPAs are a financing option.
The company, which signed a 10-year BPA for a 110 megawatt solar PV plant in southern Spain earlier this year, sees the country as a potential market for future BPAs due to increased solar radiation and the number of lenders. that support the market.

El objetivo es asegurar el agarre del neumático a la carretera y un manejo óptimo del vehículo durante el frenado y la aceleración. En los turismos se usan principalmente neumáticos coche sin tubo.
Brooke Energy also «sees more opticians and companies looking for renewable energy.»
Natureji, one of Spain’s largest energy players, sees a bright future for Spanish PPAs.
announced last month Spain plans to install additional 3GW renewable capacity by 2023. «This new capacity will be mainly under PPA,» Natureji told ICIS.
BPA 2021 announcements
PPAs are long-term agreements signed between a renewable generator and a utility company or wholesaler to supply electricity. They provide a reliable and predictable source of income or expenses for both colleagues, which is why it is often used as a tool to hedge against price risk.
Spain is one of the European countries that has announced the highest number of ASFs this year.
According to ICIS observations, at least 20 people have signed up in Spain so far this year. Of these announcements, at least 13 are institutional GAP (CBPA). Most to solar energy.
Corporate BPAs are contracts in which the buyer uses renewable energy in its operations.
Last year at least 23 BPAs were signed in Spain.
Spain’s ambitious climate policies are a big boost for the country’s PPP interest rate hike.
Spain’s National Energy and Climate Program (NECP) plans to have 39 GW of solar photovoltaic capacity by 2030 and 50 GW of wind capacity, both coastal and offshore, by 2030.
ICIS Long-Term Power Analytics Spanish photovoltaic solar capacity will increase from 14.3 GW this year to 22.6 GW in 2025 and will grow to 44.2 GW in 2030.
Wind farms are the leading power generation technology in Spain, currently installed at around 28GW, according to data from phase operator REE. Based on ICIS analyst models, renewable resources are expected to reach 32.9 gigawatts by 2025 and 45.7 gigawatts by the end of the decade.
Renewable sources ICIS expects to cover 57% of Spain’s total electricity demand in 2025, increasing to 87% in 2030.
The development of unsubsidized renewable capacity in Spain is also a factor. The renewable capacity is approximately 3GW.
The tender was launched earlier this year. And Spain plans to hold 20GW renewable capacity auctions by 2025.
ICIS expects a renewable expansion without a significant subsidy to achieve the NECP 2030 target.
