Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

According to the report, cogeneration does not include "non-renewable thermal" nor fuel-gas.

This page describes the "special regime" as

Las instalaciones de producción de energía eléctrica en régimen especial deberán tener potencia instalada igual o inferior a 50 MW y estar en alguno de estos grupos:

a) Instalaciones que utilicen cogeneración u otras formas de producción de energía eléctrica asociadas a la electricidad, con un rendimiento energético elevado.

b) Instalaciones que utilicen energías renovables no consumibles, biomasa, biocombustibles, etc.

c) Instalaciones que utilicen residuos urbanos u otros residuos.

d) Instalaciones de tratamiento y reducción de residuos agrícolas, ganaderos y servicios.

Electical power production facilities in the special regime must have a nominal power no greater than 50 MW and be in one of the following groups:

a) Facilities using cogeneration or other forms of production of high-yield electrical power.

b) Facilities using nonconsumable [?] renewable energies such as biomass, biofuels, etc.

c) Facilities using urban or other waste.

d) Facilities for the treatment and reduction of waste from agriculture, anumal husbandry or services.

"energías renovables no consumibles"

At a guess, this would be geothermal?

I'm guessing small (less than 50MW) solar thermal might fall in this category, too?

cogeneration does not include "non-renewable thermal" nor fuel-gas

The "non-renewable thermal" category in the table is a sub-category of "Special regime", and I was wondering whether it was identical to cogeneration. From the 2007 law in via your link, it's not identical because facilities using waste energy are included, too ("Instalaciones que incluyan una central que utilice energías residuales procedentes de cualquier instalación, máquina o proceso industrial cuya finalidad no sea la producción de energía eléctrica y/o mecánica").

b) Facilities using nonconsumable [?] renewable energies such as biomass, biofuels, etc.

I think it's an enumeration rather than "such as". Indeed checking the 2007 law, "nonconsumable" covers wind, solar, geothermal and small hydro.
