The Spanish solar market holds great opportunities for growth and is without a dependency on subsidies. Spain has the highest irradiation in Europe at 2,150kWh/kWp (compared to UK with 950kWh/kWp or Germany with 1,070kWh/kWp), however the potential of Spain’s solar market is yet to be fully realised. In total the PV installed capacity in Spain is 4.5GW vs. 12GW in UK or 40GW in Germany (both of which are lower irradiation countries). This growth potential together with the lowering costs of materials and overheads, means that Spain is likely to achieve grid parity relatively quickly.

Hive Energy is a member of Spain’s Union Espanola Fotovoltaica (UNEF); the independent association for Spain’s photovoltaic sector.
