Energy mix: 45.6% conventional thermal, 20.5% nuclear, 19.4% other renewables, 14.5% hydroelectric
The good: Diversified energy portfolio. Large energy mix from low and no-carbon sources. Reasonably priced energy.
The bad: Large energy importer.
WEC outlook: "Policymakers need to continue focusing on several challenges such as the need for a higher electricity interconnection power grid capacity with other European member states, its ageing nuclear system, and the upcoming rises in the cost of electricity related to Spain’s tariff deficit reduction objective."
