This declaration was made during the XVI International Renewable Energy and Power Quality
Conference (ICREPQ‘18) held at the University of Salamanca, from the 21th to the 23th of
March 2018. It contains an outline of the state-of-the-art in the fields of renewable energies and
power quality including the latest results presented at the conference. At the end of the
conference this declaration was proposed and approved by the participants. This document aims
to assess the contribution of the scientific community and to recognize the prestige of the
University of Salamanca in the occasion of the commemoration of its first eight centuries, a
process which reaches its culmination in the same year in which the ICREPQ’18 is held.

The use of renewable energy sources (RES) is continuously growing, it offers a valid solution to
mitigating CO2 emissions. Unfortunately, they exhibit a slow growth compared to the energy
demand that is still satisfied by fossil fuels. The target to satisfy 50% of the market share
(corresponding to the transition from the use of fossil sources to the use of renewable sources) is
still far from reach. For this reason, they need to be sustained by current technologies.
