Together with the Spanish Renewable Energy Association (APPA) and EFACEC our Firm sponsors this side event of the annual EWEA Conference, this year to be held in Barcelona.

HOLTROP S.L.P Transaction & Business Law is a sponsor of this year's EWEA Annual Conference.

 

The event takes place Wednesday 12 March 2014, 09:30 – 14:00

at Fira de Barcelona Gran Via, Hall 8.0, Room Ciutadella

 

 

Spain’s renewable electricity sector as a whole since 2010 has been confronted with a series of significant cutbacks regarding its remuneration, mainly on a retroactive basis. This includes wind energy, which has been faced with cuts of wind premiums, a moratorium for new installations, a new tax on the gross revenues of electricity sale in the wholesale market, the abolishment of the feed-in premium option and of the indexation of the tariffs to inflation.

The latest electricity reform, which is partly already in force and should completely come into effect in the coming weeks, includes the retroactive establishment of a new economic regime for RES-E based on economic parameters and standardized installations still to be defined. This therefore changes the parameters under which existing wind projects in Spain were financed, clearly endangering their economic viability.

About this side event

This side event therefore will have a close look on the impacts of this reform for the Spanish wind sector, mainly regarding technical, economic and fiscal aspects like the consequences for wind installations in the market, the impact of operation & maintenance on the operating results or the expected resulting remuneration for wind electricity.

Furthermore, the event will analyse the possibilities of legal defense both at national and European level for the affected wind plant operators, and will provide answers to the questions that will help other countries learn from the complex legal and economic situation of the Spanish wind sector.

 

This event will be organised in Spanish, translation into English is offered.

 

Detailed agenda of the event.

Programa detallado de la jornada.

Register for this event and/or add this event to your current registration.

Participation fee: 100 € for EWEA and APPA members and 150 € for non-members, in addition to your event pass.

General Counsel are increasingly seen as strategic business partners so must actively support the organisation’s international growth while effectively mitigating legal and compliance risks. However, the ever present pressure to reduce legal spend and increase internal efficiencies, coupled with an increasingly complex international regulatory environment and uncertain economic climate, make the task more and more challenging for General Counsel and their legal teams.

The 6th Corporate Counsel Exchange, co-located with the 3rd Corporate Compliance Exchange, offers a perfect setting for senior legal professionals to network, debate and develop effective business strategies. This exclusive, invitation only event tackles the challenges that face heads of legal today and helps find solutions through a series of conference sessions, roundtable discussions and pre-arranged, one-on-one meetings with a range of solution providers.

We will be assisting this conference as a solution provider on april 23, 24 and 25.

We are showing pencil on paper from her hand. Mark her name, you will definitely see more from this very promising artist. We laid hand on a nice piece from her hand ourselves. You can find out more about her on her website: www.marikewiggers.com.

We will show some hires pictures as soon as our photographer came by again.

 

At the opening of our new office we showed work by the Spanish Artist Pedro Canabal, the pictures you see in the margin of our Blog and on our corporate 1.0 site are his. He has a very extensive artistic curriculum, going back to the early nineties. He obtained some more than a handful of important art awards, and has participated in more than 20 collective, and over 10 individual exhibitions. His exhibition was on from September 2009 until summer 2010. If you are interested in his work do not hesitate to contact us. We would be delighted to set up a meeting and a private view of his work. Our office has a small collection of Pedro's work, and we would be happy to furnish you with one of his art catalogues.
