This is an increase on the 4.3% of demand that the nation met with photovoltaic (PV) and Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) together in 2012. When wind energy, hydro and other renewable energy sources are added, the nation met over 42% of its electricity demand with renewables in 2013.
Spain has the highest portion of electricity generation from Concentrated Solar Thermal Power (CSP) of any nation in the world, and one of the highest portions of solar electric generation, following Germany and Italy.
Spanish electricity demand was down 2.1% in 2013, the second year of declines. Additionally, the nation exported a net 6.96 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of electricity in 2013, or 2.8% of generation, with Morocco as the largest destination.
