This document analyzes the effects of the moratorium on renewable energy incentives passed in Spain in January 2012. It draws the following conclusions: 1) Adjustments to the electric grid should neither be placed on consumers nor on energy efficiency & savings policies; 2) Although it is recognized that the power system is unsustainable, not enough is being done to reform it; and 3) Renewable energy is not the source of the tariff deficit; rather, despite the cuts made to renewable energy, energy costs continue to rise even as demand falls.
