Photovoltaic solar energy on roofs etc

The Canary Islands will allocate 9 million euros for photovoltaic solar energy on roofs, car parks and other anthropized spaces.

"It could cover practically all the solar energy needs of the Canary Islands and from the Government we are committed to its use in the face of the occupation of new areas"

The Deputy Minister for Ecological Transition, Fight against Climate Change and Energy, Julieta Schallenberg, participates in the VII Atlantic Self-Consumption and Sustainability Forum held in Lanzarote, where professionals from the photovoltaic sector and representatives of the business fabric meet, to talk and bring together positions on future plans and the sustainability of the islands.

At this meeting, in which Schallengerg participated by giving the presentation "The Canarian potential of photovoltaics in anthropized areas", the strategy of the Ministry in the field of renewable energies was presented, highlighting the use of these areas to generate photovoltaic energy and other renewable energies. Spaces characterized by having a previous use, and being the preferential alternative to the use of new land.

In this regard, the Deputy Minister announced that the Ecological Transition will allocate 9 million euros derived from the Next Generation Funds for the installation of photovoltaic solar energy in these anthropized spaces. Likewise, and as a complement to this support, he pointed out that a map of anthropized areas of the Canary Islands will be published on the website of the public company Grafcan, so that this information is accessible to developers, institutions and the general public, promoting their use with renewable energies.

In his presentation, Schallenberg stated that "we must make a firm commitment to take advantage of spaces such as building roofs, car parks, reservoirs or greenhouses", since, in addition, "the development of renewables in these areas has faster and simpler bureaucratic procedures", thanks to which "practically all the photovoltaic energy installation needs in the Canary Islands could be covered".

In the same line of support, he also indicated that "the Ministry is holding regular meetings with all the island councils, to coordinate energy planning and promote the implementation of renewable energies throughout the archipelago, preventing any island from being left behind in the face of these advances".

The meeting, a benchmark for the analysis of the situation and trends of the energy sector in the Archipelago, was sponsored by the Government of the Canary Islands and the Solar Energy Technology Park of Gran Canaria and has been organized by the Association of Canary Islands Solar Energy Producing Companies (Sorecan) and the solar energy company, SM Advance Energy.

In this latest edition of the forum, other issues of interest for the sustainability and self-consumption of the archipelago were also addressed. An example of this are some of the presentations presented, where aspects such as the keys to the energy transition in the Islands, photovoltaic integration or the benefits offered by the Canary Islands in terms of investment opportunities were discussed.
