Wind energy produces more than 60% of the electricity consumed in Spain

During this last weekend, the electricity system operator issued orders regarding the maximum wind power penetration level, which at specific times, ranged between 11,000 MW and 14,979 MW; these technical restrictions had only a slight impact on production from wind power.

This event represented a new challenge that Red Eléctrica, as system operator, was well capable of managing without putting the security of the supply at risk.
