Abstract: During the last decades the Spanish energy system has become more energy and carbon intensive, and more dependent on external energy resources, although this trend seems to have stopped in the recent years. The regulation of the electricity and gas markets has significantly changed. Two scenarios for the 2030 time horizon are analysed with the POLES-Spain energy model. Under the baseline scenario, the main energy challenges persist even if the energy-GDP intensity reverses its increasing trend. According to a second scenario that assumes significant progress in energy efficiency and higher international energy prices, the energy system undergoes a transformation towards cleaner technologies and renewable energy resources.
