1 Ocean Energy Activities in Spain Pablo Ruiz-Minguela Head of Wave Energy

2 Contents Ocean Energy Policy Research and Development Technology Demonstration Other activities Conclusions

3 Ocean Energy Policy: Strategy and National Targets Renewable Energy Plan (approved in Nov. 2011) 20% of total energy consumption / 38,2% of electricity generation Current situation (Sept 2011): 13,2% energy / 32,3% electricity Ocean Power (wave and tidal) Targets by 2020 The first 10MW expected by Cumulative capacity of 100MW by Annual growth rate of 20-25MW between 2016 and Targets MW GWh MW GWh MW GWh MW GWh MW GWh Onshore Wind Offshore Wind Ocean Energy Important Growth of Ocean Energy after 2020 Phase 1 - Reliability confirmation ( ): cost is not a major issue Phase 2 - Technology development ( ): 21 to 33 per MWh Phase 3 - Technology consolidation ( ): 7 to 15 per MWh

4 Ocean Energy Policy: Support & Market Stimulation Initiatives Technology Strategy Actions R&D programme: cost reduction and survivability Demonstration programme and testing facilities: validate performance Collaboration with other countries: reliability and installation techniques Non-technology Strategy Actions Planning of grid infrastructures to facilitate ocean energy integration General dissemination and promotion to improve social acceptance Relevant Legislation and Regulation Technology Strategy Actions R&D programme: cost reduction and survivability Demonstration programme and testing facilities: validate performance Collaboration with other countries: reliability and installation techniques BUT Royal Decree 1/2012, January 27th: All feed-in tariffs for new installations of renewables have been temporarily suspended due to the financial crisis!!

5 Ocean Energy Policy: Relevant Documents Renewable Energy Plan (www.idae.es) Full document and executive summary Supporting documents: Technology Progress and Prospective Costs Economic Impact of Renewable Energies in Spain Employment Creation Spanish Wave Energy Resource Wave Atlas along the Spanish coast (www.ihcantabria.com/enola) kw/m kw/m Total Available Capacity = 20 GW

6 Research and Development: Government & Industry funded Projects The most important R&D project: running since 2009, partially funded by the Spanish Government within its CENIT-E programme, and led by Iberdrola: 30M budget 15M public funding 40 months 20 industrial partners + 24 research centres OceanLider includes several R&D activities with a holistic perspective: 1. Resource and site assessment 2. Technology development (including combine systems with wind) 3. Grid connection 4. Operation and Maintenance 5. Installation 6. Environmental impact

7 Research and Development: Coordination with European Partners MaRINET - Marine Renewables Infrastructure Network for Emerging Energy Technologies - Access at no cost to 42 marine renewable energy testing facilities in Europe Funded by FP7, start: April 2011, 4 years. Leader: UCC (Ireland) WAVETRAIN 2 - Initial Training Network for Wave Energy Research Professionals - Marie Curie initial training network for Wave Energy Funded by FP7, start: October 2008, 45 months.
