IMIM Conference: Challenges for the renewable technologies in the energy transition process

November 24th

Luis Crespo. Former President of Protermosolar (Spain) and Estela (EU)

There is no doubt. Renewables – of different kind and applications – will be the dominant source of energy in the future, particularly in the electricity sector. However,

  • Although Renewables are growing fast in the power sector, their current contribution is not high. Penetration of Renewables in heat and transport is too little and difficult to increase.
  • Synthetic renewable fuels and green H2 might be appropriate carriers but technical and economic barriers are not easy to overcome.
  • Furthermore, large penetration of cheap but non dispatchable renewables – PV and wind – creates grid and market issues, which will prevent for unlimited deployment.

During the conference the possibilities to overcome these issues will be explored,

  • Assessing the potential contribution of Renewable Energy technologies on the future energy mix, in particular in the electricity sector
  • Understanding the regulatory issues, climate change mitigation, policy commitments, barriers and threats, which might push or delay the penetration pace of R.E.
  • Knowing the situation and aspects related to the implementation and operation of renewable power plants at commercial scale

Speaker: Luis Crespo, Former President of Protermosolar (Spain) and Estela (EU)

Dr. Luis Crespo, PhD aeronautical engineer by the Polytechnic University of Madrid and Sociologist by the Complutense University of Madrid.

Recently retired, he was president of PROTERMOSOLAR until June 2021 and President of ESTELA (Spanish and European CSP associations). Both organizations provide a great variety of added value services to its associated members and promote the consideration of this technology by the Policy Makers for a wide deployment at world level.

He was member of the Renewable Industry Advisory Board of the IEA until 2019 and representative of the Spanish government or of the CSP Industry in many national and international committees. He was also consultant of governments and financial multilateral institutions

He was pioneer at the Almeria Solar Platform, involved in the central receiver plant of the IEA and in the GAST German-Spanish project. Afterwards he was appointed Director of Spanish Renewable Energy Institute in CIEMAT.

Later on, he moved to the management and financing sectors becoming deputy Director of CDTI, General Director of AENTEC and General Director of CEX (Venture Capital). In 2008 he returned to the CSP sector placing CSP contributing to the deployment of CSP plants in Spain (2300 MW) and placing CSP again in the picture of the official Spanish Plan for 2030 (additional 5 GW).

He has been speaker in more than 100 workshops and congresses and he has been professor in several master courses of the Polytechnic University of Madrid and Business Schools in the fields of business administration, technology management and energy. He has published many articles, papers and long chapters in renewable energy books. In 2020 he received the SolarPACES Lifetime Award.
