WEBINAR ON DEMAND
Duration: 1 hour
In May, Spain’s electrical grid accomplished something many countries around the world are chasing: Between 10 am and 7 pm, the amount of renewable generation exceeded the nation’s total electricity demand. This was a remarkable feat because wind, solar and hydropower were able to meet demand on a regular workday when three of the country’s nuclear power plants were offline.
In 2022 about 42% of Spain’s electricity was generated by renewables — an increase from 24% in 2009. Despite that progress, Spain still has a long way to go to reach its 2050 net-zero target.
Iberdrola is a renewable energy leader in Spain and dozens of countries around the world. The utility is leading the Flexener consortium, a group of innovative companies dedicated to accelerating Spain’s shift to 100% renewable energy. The Flexener consortium is investigating how demand management and a distributed energy resource management system (DERMS) can simultaneously provide reliable electricity to Spain’s energy customers while also accelerating the move to a 100% renewable electricity system. The DERMS selected for the project is provided by OSI, an AspenTech company. In this webinar, you’ll learn:
