'Electricity interconnections': Spain's situation. Special feature -includes narration-

As part of the informative project undertaken by Red Eléctrica to disseminate the importance of international connections in the future European electricity system, a second infograph has been produced to explain the situation of Spain.

Currently the Iberian Peninsula has one of the lowest levels of interconnection in the European Union. Only a very small proportion of energy can be imported or exported, thus limiting the potential to help or get help in the case of an electrical incident.

The strengthening of the interconnection with the European system, 10 times more powerful than the Spanish system, is therefore the most important investment to be made in the coming years.

This infograph explains Spain's interconnections with neighboring countries and the projects that will in the future increase the energy exchange capacity with Europe, including the new interconnection line with France through the eastern Pyrenees.
