Green advocates welcomed the Spanish government's strategy as a positive indicator from the big economy. At the same time, the country is trying to reduce heart and coal.
On Tuesday, November 13, the Spanish government entered into a countries that wrote, in accordance with European legislation, a national energy and climate plan.
The Spanish completed two closing dates. By 2030, the largest market economy in Europe should create 70 per cent of electricity from renewable sources. In 2050 it should be 100 per cent.
Reduction reduction by 90 per cent
The attempt of the Spanish government was to move to "green economy" by the representative of the SolarPower Europe Business Association, James Watson.
"It's interesting to see Spain to set the pace in meeting its commitment to 100 per cent of electricity from refined sources. energy. Its commitment is to ensure that large-scale electricity economies from renewable sources can be in a short time, "he said.
According to the International Energy Agency in 2016, renewable wells were in & covers 23 per cent of electricity consumption in Spain. Nuclear power is satisfied about 20% of the demand.
The government plan also includes a reduction in CO emissions2 with at least 20 per cent by 2030 and 90% by 2050. The current level of 17% is higher than in 1990, which means that a 37 per cent overall reduction would be required by 2030 .
End of heart and coal
On November 15, the Socialist government also announced that Spain is not planning to provide the life of nuclear reactors and its. decreasing their 40-year lifecycle.
"There are likely to be no closed reactions by 2030, but in 2040 everything should be closed," said José Dominguez's Spanish Spaniard Energy Minister. At the same time, he said that the process of decommissioning of the reactors was a long-term process.
The same reason is waiting for a Spanish coal power station.
The government would make nine plants of coal power closed by the government by June 2020, because they will no longer comply with Union rules on the main pollutants. Another five should be closed by 2030.
Long Way to Green Economy
But Spanish has a great way to go to the carbon neutral economy. If the country wants a disposal of dependence on natural coal, oil and gas, it must stop issuing licenses for the research of new deposits, which prohibits the breach of water breaking – hydraulic handling) and to eliminate subsidies for fossil fuels.
A draft law that presents a strategy should be sent to Parliament by the end of the year.
The commitments placed in Spain are in many areas; passing the reforms required by the European Union in the "Energy Lights for All Europeans" legislative package.
The European Commission and its # 39; This year's Parliament is a binding target to increase the proportion of renewable energy to 32 per cent and energy efficiency to 32.5 per cent by 2030. Spanish legislation proposes a 35% target for each department.
In addition to Union requirements
The European Parliament has agreed four sets of statutory packages last year at the plenary session in Strasbourg. The EU Council has not yet been confirmed.
Vice President of the EU Energy Commission, Maroš Šefčovič, said in this context that the Parliament's vote is on its behalf; Cleaning the real transitory ability of Europe's movement to clean energy.
Under the new rules, each Member State will be required to prepare a first draft of the national plan to address climate change by the end of 2018. It will then forward proposals to; The Commission. The final version must be submitted by December 2019.
After consolidating the EU Council's statutory package, the new regulations will be published in the EU official official collection. They will end three days later.
