The Spanish government announced its support for the development of technology for energy storage for renewables, to increase the system's flexibility and the stability of the network.
The Strategy envisages having a storage capacity of about 20 GW by 2030 and reaching 30 GW by 2050, considering both large-scale and distributed storage.
The document identifies and analyses challenges, defines measures for their effective deployment, assesses opportunities and quantifies storage needs to contribute to the decarbonisation of the energy system.
Storage deployment provides opportunities for job creation, fair transition, economic recovery, and the creation of new business models across the value chain. These technologies are in place in sectors such as electric mobility, building or industry, and promote the development of new business models such as independent aggregators or renewable energy communities, which drive the active role of consumers.
