The TIE is a biometric identity card with your photo and fingerprint which acts as proof of your right to reside in Spain.

All non EU citizens, UK citizens now included, who want to reside in Spain are required to apply for a TIE, Tarjeta de Identidad Extranjera.

If you already live in Spain and have the green tarjeta de residencia, you can replace this with the TIE.
