Abengoa partners with E.ON to build solar mirror plants in South Spain
Spanish renewable energy company Abengoa will team up with German utility
E.ON to build two solar
mirror plants in southern Spain, benefiting from E.ON's cash and large grid expertise. "E.ON will learn from us in the field of solar thermal
energy, but we will learn from E.ON about large energy grids and plants," said the head of Abengoa's solar
division Santiago Seage. Both companies plan to extend the partnership to further develop solar power in Spain.
Spain has not yet released a list of solar mirror plants included in its new renewables register, which grants subsidies on normal electricity prices of about 27 eurocents per kilowatt hour, but the companies are confident the plants will be included.
