Spain has installed 4 gigawatts (GW) of solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity in 2019 and is the fastest growing European solar PV market. Due in part to favorable government policies and solar resources, there is a growth of corporate PPAs and unsubsidized projects. At issue is the ever-increasing grid access requests. The main project development bottleneck in Spain is connected to the grid access process. You can learn more about the status of Spanish solar from the March 12, 2020 Solarplaza write-up.
