How would the perfect renewable auction be?

The debate is on the table, companies in the wind sector criticize an increase in the tendency to reward the one who promises to build the cheapest park, regardless of the amount of energy it will produce later.

Spain is one of the countries that follow these parameters. According to the International Renewable Energy Agency (Irena), in 2016 the number of countries adopting this system increased to 67, when in 2005 there were only 6.

Experts defend models such as Germany, Chile or Argentina. In the example of Chile the subsidies are granted according to the energy produced, and not of installed power. “… what we want is to generate as much clean energy as possible, not to fill up with plants,” says Heikki Willstedt, director of energy policy and climate change at the Wind Energy Business Association (AEE).
