The scheduled solar photovoltaic energy production in Spain reached a historical record in one hour of February 23. Although the real‑time data indicate that the registered production was lower, the levels were similar to those of some hours of May and September 2020, months in which the solar radiation is higher.
The increase in photovoltaic capacity in recent times and the prospects of an increase in the future will mean that this technology will continue to break records in the coming months and years.
According to the real‑time data, finally the generation of that hour was almost 400 MWh lower than that scheduled. But at the hour 14 of that same day, February 23, the highest hourly production with this technology in 2021 was registered, taking into account the data up to February 24.
The production of that hour was 6688.33 MWh, a value very close to those registered in some hours of September or May 2020, months in which the solar energy radiation is greater than in February.
Installed capacity of solar photovoltaic energy
The installed capacity of solar photovoltaic energy in Mainland Spain grew significantly in recent years, increasing 153% between December 2018 and January 2021. The outlook for the next few years is also very positive, taking into account that the objectives established in the NECP point to a capacity of almost 19 GW in the national territory in the year 2030. With all these elements, it is unquestionable that this technology will continue to set records in the coming months and years.
