Spain’s top wind industry body told Recharge key details are still missing as it gave a lukewarm reaction to the government announcing a 3.1GW resumption of renewables tendering, and revealed the sector hopes to see a separate scheme for offshore wind unveiled next year.

The new auction to be launched next month, which replaces a previous system introduced in 2013, will include 1GW of wind, 1GW of solar PV, and 80MW of biomass. The remainder of the planned capacity will be drawn from other clean energy technologies.
