Compared to many other European countries, Spain has relatively high potential in application of solar energy due to its geographical condition. The monthly mean hourly value of direct irradiance is above 150 w/m2 and in summer this value could reach 750 w/m2 in some places*.
Spain is the country actively developing the usage of solar energy. It harbors almost the half of the world’s capacity in Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) installation** and becomes the world leader in CSP.
