Appa, Spain: study of the renewable macroeconomic impact
A thorough study of Appa, the year 2011, reveals the impact of renewable energy, designed in all macro-sectors, on the macro-economic impact of Spain. The Appa analyzes the positive aspects that have had the clean energy economy of the Iberian country, starting from a higher level of analysis.
In particular, the onset of the study of Appa is quite clear. In fact, in 2011, the contribution of renewable energies Spanish economy was a true reflection of the national situation in the energy sector and, in particular, the crisis that has hit the economy of Spain. Energy demand in 2011 fell by 4.4% in terms of final energy consumption, while the primary energy decreased by 0.6%.
At a macro level, the data collected throughout 2011 deserve, in Appa, a thorough study, as it can appear at first sight contradictory. On the one hand, the percentage of primary energy supplied by renewable energy has increased slightly, but the production of electricity from renewable sources has decreased compared to 2010, to 29.7%.
Contradictions that Appa explained by these changes in the field: the numbers of the renewable resource, the effect of retroactive measures adopted in 2010, or even an increase in domestic production of biofuels.
The study addresses the various areas of Appa macro that affected the development of renewables in Spain in 2011 or who have been varied, focusing on very specific aspects such as the GDP, which was supported by the induced contribution, the importance of construction of solar power plants in concentration, which prevent a further fall in employment. Another aspect not to be underestimated is the new technology in question, namely the Solar Thermal. While Biofuels: is an area burdened by massive importation and usage, such as the import of 1,675,046 tons of oil equivalent, 17% more than the previous year
Other value macroeconomic issues: export network and the tax system contributions, which have influenced the development of renewable energy in Spain from 2010 to 2011. In addition, specifically evaluated: a system sized electric, a break in 2011 in the field of electricity generated on wind and hydropower. Also according to the analysis of Appa, the electricity generated from renewable energy sources in the special avoided emissions of 33,453,671 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, worth € 429.2 million.
Based on the study brought to light by 2011, the renewable energy sector in Spain is now an engine of economic growth and regional development. The implementation of these technologies in Spain has contributed not only to the overall objectives of energy policy, but also for rural development in many parts of the country.
During 2011 there has also been an increase in the penetration of renewable energies in Spain, both in terms of installed capacity in terms of capacity. Despite this increase, there was a very slight decrease of electricity generated by these technologies. "That's because 2010 was an exceptional year in terms of water resources and the wind in our country, while in 2011, returns to normal."
