  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Ecological Transition (MITECO) coordinates the energy policy through the State Secretariat for Energy. It also covers the environmental and climate policy. An Inter-Ministerial Commission on Climate Change and Ecological Transition, attached to MITECO was created in July 2018 to coordinate decision-making related to climate change and energy.

  • Energy Companies


    There are 5 large electricity companies: Iberdrola (Qatar Investment Authority 8.57%, Blackrock 5.13%, Norges Bank 3%), Endesa (Enel 70%), Naturgy (former Gas Natural Fenosa, Caixa Bank 24.4%, Rioja 20.2%, infrastructure fund GIP 20.3%, and Sonatrach 4.1%), EDP Energia (100% EDP), and Viesgo (100% Repsol).

  • Energy Supply


    Spain has limited oil reserves (25 Mt) and no gas reserves (3.4 bcm) (end of 2018). 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 (around 70% of coal).

  • Energy Prices


    Residential electricity prices have doubled since 2002 with an acceleration between 2007 and 2012 (+9%/year), explained by the rising weight of feed-in tariffs and attempts by electricity companies to recoup their tariff deficit.

    Since 2013, residential prices have increased by 3.6%/year (+2.3% in 2018), while industrial prices have remained broadly stable. Industrial prices are in ...

  • Energy Consumption

    In 2018, total consumption per capita was 2.7 toe (13% lower than the EU average) and electricity consumption per capita was 5 200 kWh (7.5% below the EU average).


    Total energy consumption rose by 2.4%/year between 2014 and 2017 (stable in 2018 at 126 Mtoe). It decreased sharply between 2007 and 2014 with the economic ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    According to the baseline scenario presented in the draft NECP, primary energy consumption could increase slightly (+0.3%/year) between 2015 and 2030, reaching 129 Mtoe in 2030, while final energy consumption would grow slightly faster, by 0.8%/year, to 95 Mtoe in 2030. Domestic production should increase by 1.2%/year (spurred by renewable production), while energy imports should remain ...
