March 6 (Renewables Now) – The regional government of Andalusia announced on Tuesday that it will tender a new electricity supply contract this June, requesting for the first time that the energy comes from 100% renewable sources.

To prove that the electricity is supplied from renewables, the contractor must present a certificate of guarantee from Spanish competition watchdog CNMC.

Public entities that comprise the regional government’s energy management network (REDEJA) include administrative buildings, secondary schools, hospitals, museums, among others. Their combined electricity demand amounts to 920 GWh per year, the regional government said.
