Malcolm Gray, CFO and co-founder of Libryo, discusses the challenges energy businesses face with ever-changing legislation.
Like many other nations, Spain has incentives to encourage investment in renewable energy production. After several years with a ‘moratorium’ on incentives and no new build, the need for incentives has disappeared almost overnight as renewable energy sources have reduced costs and have now achieved “grid parity”, meaning that they can be developed without government subsidies. Whilst this has encouraged an increase in renewable energy projects, it could be harmful to profits and have serious economic risks for investors. So what are the potential risks of taking a long-lasting grid parity in Spain for granted, how can these problems be mitigated and why is it relevant to us all?
