In the face of rising demand for specialist solar PV knowledge and experience, Quintas Advisory, a leading team of independent renewable energy consultants, is meeting market demand with impressive annual growth of 20% in 2021 and 2022.
According to a recent study by Rystad Energy, Spain and Portugal are at the forefront of surging growth in Europe’s renewable energy capacity. Describing the Iberian Peninsula as a “new European Powerhouse”, the two countries expect to reach 79% renewables in their combined energy mix by 2030. Spain was the third largest regional energy exporter in the first three quarters of 2022, behind only Sweden and Germany.
As the country with one of the highest irradiation levels in Europe, the Spanish solar sector is predicted to maintain robust growth in the upcoming decades. With the well-publicised climate neutrality target by 2050, there has never been a greater awareness of the importance that renewable energy can play in the lives of citizens. For Europe to reach the interim target of sourcing 45% of its energy from renewables by 2030, 45GW of additional capacity must be added in the next seven years.
With the growing global importance of clean energy, Spain has experienced a significant increase in new projects in recent years, resulting in a growing demand for expert advice at all stages of investment, from initial development to construction and operation. These specialists play a critical role in ensuring the success of these projects and optimising their performance.

Spain is home to some of the most well-known brands in the solar industry: EPC and O&M companies and manufacturers of trackers and inverters, among others. Independent solar and storage asset manager Quintas Energy is also a familiar name among industry professionals. With over 15 years of experience and 6,500 megawatts under management, its service portfolio is equivalent to one-third of the photovoltaic production currently installed in Spain.
