The Murcia region reaches 900 megawatts of installed capacity in sustainable energy (16/02/2013)

Murcia exported to other communities and half a million megawatt hours of electricity, which accounts for 20 percent of the total energy produced

The Murcia region in 2012 reached a total of 900 megawatts of installed capacity in renewable and efficient, according to data provided by the Ministry of Universities and Research Company, through the Directorate General of Industry, Energy and Mines.

Specifically, the amount of installed power includes the power produced by cogeneration, hydro, photovoltaic, solar thermal and wind.

This confirms the positive developments over recent years have been the installation of energy production projects and through technologies based on renewable sources.

The Director General of Industry, Energy and Mines, Pedro Jimenez, said that "since 2007 doubled the facilities based on renewable energy and sustainable we have in the region, and that this year we had 453 megawatts installed".

Also, more than the overall figure of installed power, Jimenez stressed that 23.74 percent of the energy produced in the region during the past year is energy efficient, "which is a significant amount, to be increasing year after year and contributing to the region increase their levels of energy self-sufficiency. "

Since 2007, have increased by 75 percent wind farm facilities in the region, reaching 262 MW installed.

Also in that time has doubled the production of wind energy, which rose from 158,000 MWh to 309,000 MWh.

The CEO said that "Murcia is a community that exports power to other regions. Indeed, in 2011 we exported 1.492 million megawatt hours of electricity, which accounts for 20 percent of total production in the region, which amounted to 7.8 million megawatt hours. "

However, Pedro Jiménez, despite showing his satisfaction with this data, said that "we must continue to grow in this area because the development of renewable energy and energy efficiency is an investment in the future and also because this sector has business expectations very important that they can bring economic growth and job creation.
