Solar Energy in Spain (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on April 6, 2015

The solar potential in Spain is the highest in Europe because of its privileged location and climate.  Solar energy offers many advantages with respect to conventional energy, since it deals with a stream of energy that is free, clean and limitless. 

Solar thermal energy takes advantage of the sun by producing sanitary hot water, air conditioning, pool HVAC or solar refrigeration systems.  The most extensive use of solar thermal energy though, is for hot water.  Still, its development is still very limited in Spain, besides being the European country with the most solar radiation.  One of the causes of this type of energy being poorly enforced is the lack of ecological consciousness that the world has yet to realize. 

This document explains what solar energy is, the benefits of it and goes through the costs of installation for different appliances.
