Ohh? Really?

Show me the return on investment capital from product [energy] generated
and sold.

Lots of money spent.. very low return on investment.. so much so.. Spain
has put a stop on further underwriting of projects, last I heard.

If your point is, plants were built. Then yes.. they exist. The link lists
them, nicely.

My point is, those plants are not making design capacity or efficency,
which was used to attract investors money.. a lot of it. It lacks delivery
as advertised.. for what ever reason.

Show me instead, quarterly profit reports for each of those plants, and
capital investment return to the investors.
