Spain



Spain is located in Southern Europe, covering 505,944 km2 (195,346 mile2) of land surface and having a population of 46.4 Million (2017).  Spain’s primary energy production is 397 terawatt-hours (TWh), and energy supply per capita is 28 MWh (UN data, 2017). Nuclear is the largest source of primary energy production, while oil is the largest source of primary energy consumption (The Shift Project, 2014). 617 species are listed as threatened (UN data, 2017).

 

As of 2016, Spain has 526 kW installed capacity of wave energy (OES). Spain is currently a member of Ocean Energy Systems, participating in Annex IV.

 

As of 2016, Spain has 23,026 MW total installed wind power capacity, including 5 MW offshore capacity (IEA Wind). Spain generated 48 TWh of electricity from wind in 2016 (IEA Wind). Spain is currently a member of IEA Wind, participating in WREN.
