What is the future of renewable energies?

This year will be one of the most important in the history of renewable energies. Opting for this new model is beginning to topple the legal obstacles and scepticism from time gone by. Conquest of the future begins today.

The recent past of renewable energy

Although historically Spain has always been mentioned as a reference in the renewables race, today there is some homework to do.

Between 2013 and 2015. Europe underwent a definitive advance with spectacular growth in solar and wind energy. Although Spain was well positioned prior to 2013, its inability to grow over this period (0.07% growth in wind energy and 0.3% in solar energy) is now catching up with it.

In 2016, the United Nations Paris Agreement enabled talking clearly about the topic with resounding figures: in 2020 European Union member states would have to have reduced their emissions into the atmosphere by 20% and attained 20% use of renewable energies.

Will we be capable of complying with these aims? Currently we are at approximately 17.3% for renewables. However, 2020 is just around the corner.

 

The end of coal is just the beginning

Energy from coal is one of the most contaminating. Spain has assumed an undertaking to stop using coal (both mines and reactors) by 2050, and replace all this energy with renewable sources.

Following this path towards the future, Endesa has brought an end to coal as an energy source. The company has closed reactors in Andorra (Teruel) and Compostilla (León) to focus on renewable energy production. To overcome this challenge more than one billion euros will be invested.

These reactors will not disappear but rather they will be radically transformed. Coal is out and clean energy will be in. Only in the Andorra reactor is it planned to attain 1000 megawatts of photovoltaic energy.

“Now that the 17% presence of renewables has been exceeded, Spain must now step up the pace to attain 20% in 2020.”

The country of sun has to flex its muscles

Beyond the tourist slogan, data indicate that Spain enjoys a higher number of hours of sunlight than a good part of the continent. As a source of inexhaustible energy, the future of clean energies in Spain doubtless slows down its solar potential.

The long-term plan is that photovoltaic energy manages to gradually replace fossil energy, coal and even gas. The elimination of the solar tax and tariffs on solar panels has given the green light to definitively opt for the installation of solar panels.

 

The future is being the leader

In this global situation, in these years, which are decisive for the future, the key is having the courage and ability to lead change.

One example is the public hotel chain Paradores, which has signed an agreement with Endesa so that 100% of energy consumed in its facilities comes from totally renewable sources.

This decision forms part of the Corporate Social Responsibility Master Plan and guarantees that Endesa will supply these 96 hotels with solar, wind and hydraulic energy.

“In the specific case of Spain, solar energy will play a decisive role when fulfilling global commitments.”

The day on which all tariffs will be green

If expectations are met, if humanity once again surpasses itself, a time will come when the adjective green next to a product or tariff will stop making sense. Quite simply, everything will be green.

Until then, there are solutions on the market thought out for those who want to move to the future. The Tempo Verde Supervalle Tariff is specifically designed you to charge your electric car and banish fossil fuels from your life altogether.

The amount of energy you consume with Tempo Verde Supervalle is generated by means of renewable sources and high-efficiency cogeneration. Aside from the green component, saving is guaranteed because prices are especially low between 01:00 and 07:00 am. In this way you can leave your electric car charging overnight and have it ready when you wake up.

The tariff has 3 time periods:

  • Super Off-peak: from 01:00 to 07:00 am.
  • Off-peak: from 07:00 am to 13:00 pm and from 23:00 to 01:00 pm.
  • Peak: from 13:00 to 23:00 pm.

Each period has a different price. Super Off-peak is the lowest followed by Off-peak and finally Peak. However, in the three ranges you will enjoy guaranteed discounts.
