Spanish law established a Feed-in Tariff for Solar Photovoltaic Power Plants in 2007 under the Real Decreto 661/2007 that stimulated the development and installation of 2500 MW of Utility Scale PV in 2008 alone.? The Spanish Solar PV market has been described as a â??flash in the pan??? compared to other established PV markets such as Californiaâ??s residential PV sector that has been active for decades.? Nonetheless, as PV project size increases in the US a lot can be learned from the Spanish experience.? Aries Ingeniería, a Spanish renewable energy engineering and project development company, owns and fully developed 15 MW of PV plants and engineered an additional 40 MW of PV plants in Spain during the Solar PV boom there.? This presentation will discuss Ariesâ?? experience in the Spanish Utility Scale PV market and how that can be leveraged in the US.
