islands 2040 by decarbonising

Decarbonising the islands by 2040

"We have the challenge and the goal of decarbonising the islands by 2040".

Ecological Transition leads the first Offshore Wind Energy Roundtable in the Canary Islands to advance its implementation in the archipelago


The Ministry of Ecological Transition and Energy of the Government of the Canary Islands leads the first Offshore Wind Energy Roundtable on the islands, in a meeting that was attended by the Minister, Mariano H. Zapata and the Deputy Minister, Julieta Schallenberg, together with the different representatives and agents of the entities related to this sector.

The Minister, Mariano H. Zapata, thanked all the attendees for their commitment to prepare this first coordination meeting and move forward with the implementation of offshore wind energy so that "the Canary Islands are pioneers in this sector, working hand in hand with all those involved". "We have the goal and the challenge of decarbonising the islands by 2040 and that can only happen by working tirelessly to advance in the penetration of renewables, using all the resources and tools at our disposal," said the minister.

In this sense, Zapata also pointed out that "in addition to working hard to perfectly combine environmental protection with the present and future development of the Canary Islands in its decarbonisation, we must also see here an opportunity for diversification and economic wealth for sectors that must coexist, such as tourism and fishing". All this, he pointed out, "on islands where wind potential is important and in a time frame in which green energies are more important than ever".

Likewise, during this first roundtable-forum, Zapata and his team highlighted to the attendees the firm commitment of the Ministry to advance in this penetration of renewables, emphasizing that a first meeting of the Renewable Energy Table of the Canary Islands had already been led last November. According to the Minister of the area, "it had the involvement and support of the main renewable energy associations in the sector, the Canary Islands Association of Renewable Energies (ACER) and the Canary Islands Wind Association (AEOLICAN), as well as representatives of Endesa and Red Eléctrica, for which we are very satisfied, as it shows the interest and commitment of everyone to achieve these objectives".

This first meeting was attended by representatives of the Delegation of the Government of Spain in the Canary Islands, the port authorities and maritime captaincies of both provinces, the Maritime Cluster of the Canary Islands, the Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands (PLOCAN), the Technological Institute of the Canary Islands (ITC) and the Wind Energy Business Association (AEE). In addition, on behalf of the Government of the Canary Islands, representatives of the Ministry of Economy, Commerce, Industry and Self-Employed Persons attended; Territorial Policy, Territorial Cohesion and Water; Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Food Sovereignty, Tourism and Employment; as well as Public Works, Housing and Mobility, where the General Directorate of Coasts is located.
