  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda (MINETAD) coordinates the energy policy through the State Secretariat for Energy.

    CNMC, Comisión Nacional de los Mercados y la Competencia (National Markets and Competition Commission) regulates the energy sector; in 2013, it incorporated the former energy regulator, CNE.

    Between 1996 and 1998 the Government privatised the ...

  • Energy Companies


    Repsol is the national oil company (Caixabank 9.6%, Sacyr 8% and Temasek 4.1%). As part of its 2016-2020 strategic plan, Repsol will focus on efficiency and asset portfolio management, to reach €2.1bn/year of savings and synergies after the integration of Talisman. The company will divest non-strategic assets and seek to cut energy costs and CO2 emissions.

  • Energy Supply


    Spain has limited oil reserves (155 mbl) and no gas reserves (3.4 bcm) (2017). Shale gas reserves have been estimated at about 1 415 bcm, which would represent at least 39 years of domestic gas demand. Proven coal and lignite reserves reach 1.2 Gt (including 868 Mt of coal).

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices have soared since 2002 with an acceleration seen in the upward trend between 2009 and 2013, explained by the rising weight of renewable feed-in tariffs and attempts by electricity companies to recoup their tariff deficit.

    Electricity prices grew by nearly 9%/year over the 2007-2014 period. Residential prices have remained broadly stable since then, while industrial ...

  • Energy Consumption

    In 2017, total consumption per capita was 2.6 toe (16% lower than the EU average) and electricity consumption per capita was 5 250 kWh (6% below the EU average).


    Total energy consumption decreased sharply between 2007 and 2014 with the economic downturn (-3.2%/year), but has been rising since then by 2%/year to 122 Mtoe in ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    According to the Energy Ministry's Energy Plans (2015), primary energy consumption is expected to increase by 1%/year between 2013 and 2020, despite a continuous decline in oil consumption (-1.1%/year to 38% of primary consumption), with coal consumption growing by 3.9%/year and gas consumption by 2.6%/year to cover 11% and 24% of primary consumption, respectively. Final energy consumption ...
