In Spain, sustainable financing has increased nine-fold over the past five years and in 2020 it grew by 45% compared to the previous year.
A study by Deloitte published by the Naturgy Foundation analysed the boom in sustainable financing within the framework of the energy transition and decarbonisation by 2050 objectives.
The maximum renewable gas production potential in Spain could be the equivalent of 65% of the current total natural gas demand if it is purposefully developed.
European countries such as Germany, the United Kingdom and Sweden are very advanced in the development of this new energy vector, which Spain seeks to boost with the future Climate Change Act.
