Winners and losers
Winner: Cuts to Spain’s national subsidies for coal, coupled with stricter EU environmental legislation, mean many of the country’s older coal-fired plants are expected to close by 2020. This should leave more room for gas in power generation as a flexible back-up for intermittent supplies from wind and solar.
