Spanish wind sector suffers through government indecision

SpainThe Spanish wind power generation industry is calling on the Spanish government to take action if the sector isn’t to disintegrate further.

Industry chiefs say they need a stable and predictable regulatory framework that offers incentives to the sector, according to a study by Deloitte cited by the Spanish wind energy association, AEE.

Current regulations expire at the end of 2013 and the government stands accused of causing uncertainty through not taking steps to initiate a new programme.

14,319 direct and indirect jobs were shed in the industry since end-2008 according to the study and $35.2bn in investments could be lost if the current uncertainty isn’t addressed, Deloitte claims.
