Aragonese President Javier Lamban, To protect the interests of those industries which have cogeneration plants and whose viability is in danger With the latest state decree. Lambon spoke with Teresa Ribera, the third vice president and minister for ecological transition, last Saturday, to tell her that 35 of the community’s facilities could be liquidated because retaliation for gas “doesn’t pay off”, like the rest of the country. . “She is aware of the problem,” she continues in this newsletter.
that’s why he Joint cycle for healing calls for plants to be similarThose market gas prices are identified at -130 euros per MWh-, a third higher than what is proposed for co-generation for the second half of the year. Its approach is associated with that of the Spanish Cogeneration Association.Which warned last Wednesday that industry-linked power generation has already declined by 60% and has come down from 11% of total generation to just 4% in the month of July.
Lamban made the changes themselves that Vice President Ribeira last week, but they were inadequate, as the parties affected told him. ,This is a problem for important Aragonese companies. Preventing co-generation means reducing distribution and competitiveness in a more efficient way of producing energy than the combined cycle in key companies and regions for Aragon”, he highlighted this Sunday.
The company that most co-productions in Aragon is the paper mill Saica., which has many plants and was a pioneer in Spain when it came to betting on this technology. Added to these are the main industries in the community, as they also have opal facilities—in their case, for two decades—equipment manufacturer BSH, companies in the agri-food sector such as Zufrisa, Zuera Slaughterhouse, fish farm in Aliaga and Arroces of Aragon. , or at other firms such as Solutex, Bieffe Medital, Nurel, Brilen and Tereos.
Sahajanan is one High energy efficiency technology that helps industries optimize their competitiveness When it comes to your electricity cost, Many companies that require large amounts of heat for their production processes have their own plants that generate electricity and heat at the same time, thus making much of the fuel they consume, especially gas. efficient use.

The socialist leader has announced that he is going to approach other regional presidents to form a common front, “I have agreed to send a proposal with the minister; it is about the Spanish government taking action and giving the same benefits as the combined cycle. And let’s not forget that these last plants use coal, which approach is environmentally degrading,” he said.
35 co-production plants in Aragon, most of them are established in the province of Zaragoza, They have an installed capacity of 512 MW, representing 5.2% of all installed electricity and service at the end of last year.“The Aragonese businessmen with whom he has spoken are absolutely outraged and I think they are right,” the president said.
According to the Energy Situation Bulletin in Aragon, 35 co-generation plants produced approximately three million megawatt hours, which represents More than 9% of the electricity generated by this technology across the country,
Aragonese facilities generated the bulk of 2.6 million MW of electricity with conventional fuels, mainly gas, while the remainder, the remaining 327,536 MW, contained biomass as primary energy. And the nearly 3 million sold are added to another 397,914 that were self-consumed, as stated in the bulletin above.
The sector association shows that co-generation for all households and SMEs in the country saves the equivalent of two and a half months of gas consumption per year. “It is an economic waste that the plant and allied industries continue to withhold,” the unit assessed.
