The power generated in Spain between January and November 2017 was 33.8 per cent renewable, mainly thanks to the country’s wind farms.
Wind’s share in total generation was 18.7% in the 11 months. It was beat only by nuclear energy, whose share in Spain’s power arrived at 22.7% in the period.
In November alone, wind fell to third place in terms of its contribution to the power mix with a share of 18.2% and an output of 3,884 GWh. Coal-fired power plants produced the most — 21.9% of Spain’s electricity, closely followed by combined-cycle natural gas plants with a 21.6% share.
