Strong winds and increased installed capacity aided green energy output during the month. The capacity of wind-powered production has increased by 3.7% since April 2021, while photovoltaic installed capacity has increased by a whopping 26%.

According to a report released by the pro-renewable energy think tank Ember Climate, solar and wind energy account for 40% of Spain's electrical grid, as renewable energy was boosted by a breezy spring and increased installed capacity.

Last month, wind farms provided 26.2 percent of the country's electricity, while solar facilities provided 14.1 percent, according to Ember Climate, which cited statistics from Spanish grid operator Red Electrica.

Strong winds and increased installed capacity aided green energy output during the month. The capacity of wind-powered production has increased by 3.7% since April 2021, while photovoltaic installed capacity has increased by a whopping 26%.

According to Ember Climate, nuclear power and gas-fired facilities generated 21.6% and 20.3% of electricity in Spain for the month.
According to the research, photovoltaic power plants used 25.2% of their installed capacity, while wind farms used 25.9%.
In May 2021, the share of solar and wind power in the country's electricity mix set a new high of 38%.

Spain aims to get 67% of its electricity from renewables by 2026, thanks to its sunny plains, fast-flowing rivers, and windy slopes. Private corporations from around the world are pouring money into the country to help create the infrastructure needed to achieve that aim.
