“On this occasion, we want to get a significant percentage of renewable wind energy [and] another percentage dedicated to photovoltaics, but with two peculiarities that are the result of learning from the requests of these months,” she added, noting that there will be an “ultra-fast” quota of 600 MW for small scale projects.

In the last renewables auction held in Spain, in January, the government allocated a total of 3.034 GW of clean energy capacity at an average price of €24.47/MWh ($29.62). The capacity allocations included 2.036 GW of solar PV and 998 MW of wind energy.
