Flora & Fauna - Clean, Green Andalucia

"Andalucia is the perfect place for renewable energy."

 

Andalucia is the perfect place for renewable energy, with its miles of coastline where wind turbines can harness the sea breezes, and its endless hours of sunshine, which can be absorbed by solar panels and turned into energy. In fact, one of Europe´s largest solar farms is in Andalucia, in Sanlucar la Mayor, near Seville. Its ground-breaking ´solar power tower´ system, the first of its type in Europe, has 624 movable mirrors and will eventually be able to produce enough energy for 180,000 homes. On a sunny day, you can see its dazzling column of light from the Seville-Huelva motorway.
