Renewable energies have in Spain become a very dynamic sector. The need to implement European Directives to address climate change issues, has been joined by the requirements to improve energy efficiency and to reduce the external dependence. This article discusses the keys to this process, highlighting both the factors that have enabled the rapid growth of some technologies (preferably wind and solar), and the limitations imposed by both budgetary consolidation processes as growth accelerated some of them.
