Energy CEO: Spain will run on 100 percent renewable energy

01 Nov 2016

The CEO of Acciona has predicted his country will become 100 percent reliant on renewable energy in the near future. 

 Miguel Ezpeleta explained there is enough wind energy to generate power for 29 million Spanish homes every day. 

“The important thing is to predict and forecast what is going to happen.I think people are going to tell me we're crazy but I'm pretty sure we'll arrive at 100 per cent for one moment for sure,” said Ezpeleta. 

Acciona currently monitors 9,500 wind turbines across the world from its base in Pamplona in northern Spain. 

The European Union has also set a renewable energy target for Spain to fulfil 20 percent of its energy requirements with clean energy by 2020.
