Renewable Energy Description:

The Royal Decree 1614/2010 first adjusts electricity feed-in tariffs allocated to wind generated power. The latest will be cut down by 35% as from early 2011. The aim of such a cut is to generated important savings and adapt to new market structures. The Royal Decree moreover establishes, for thermal and wind electricity, a share of equivalent generated hour per year - net electricity generated over the year divided by the power stations nominal power- eligible for government support. Once that limit is reached, the excess electricity generated by that particular installation during that particular year will not be entitled for any financial support.

This record is superseded by:New regulation on electrical energy from wind and thermal electric technologies (Royal Decree 1614/2010)
