Spain’s long-awaited POEMs are finally out. Spain’s Council of Ministers has approved maritime spatial plans which includes areas for offshore wind development. The POEMs are a key instrument to achieve the objectives of the offshore wind energy Roadmap and to reach 1GW-3GW of installed capacity in 2030, without compromising the country’s current maritime conditions. The plans relates to the five Spanish marine zones: North Atlantic, South Atlantic, Strait and Alboran, Levantine-Balearic and Canary Islands.
Among these, around 5000 square kilometres is reserved for offshore wind development, which makes it possible to go way beyond Spain’s current 2030 target of 3 GW. The Spanish authorities have signaled that the first offshore wind auctions can be held by the end of 2023, but details on the auction rounds have yet to be confirmed.
