Wind energy, the main renewable source in Spain, is the technology with the largest share in the national installed power capacity structure (25.2 %).

Wind represents the main source of renewable generation in Spain, with an installed power capacity of 29,994 MW, which has been increased during 2022 by 4.9 % compared to 2021; this implies 1,400 MW more installed throughout the Spanish territory. At December 31, 2022, wind power accounted for a quarter of the national installed power capacity, remaining the technology with the largest share in the installed power capacity structure.

Annual evolution of installed wind power capacity

By autonomous communities, Castile and Leon continues to be the leader in installed wind power capacity with a total of 6,617 MW, representing 22.1 % of the total national installed wind power capacity. Aragon is in second place with 5,028 MW, 16.8 % of the total. Castile-La Mancha was the autonomous community that experienced the greatest increase in installed wind power capacity in 2022, with 553 MW more than the previous year.
