Renewable energies accounted for 75% of the electricity generated by EDP in the first six months of the year. According to the note sent to the Securities Market Commission (CMVM), wind and solar generation increased by 16% as a result of the renewable resource. This value is 2% above the long-term average when compared with the 5% reduction in the same period of the previous year. This increase was also a result of the greater installed capacity, explains the statement.
The note states that during the last 12 months, 2.5 gigawatts (GW/h) of capacity were added to the wind and solar portfolio, reaching an installed capacity of 14.0 GW, an increase of 1.3 GW over the same period. At the end of June 2022, EDP had 3.2 GW of capacity under construction.
In the supply business, the company led by Miguel Stilwell de Andrade informs that in the Iberian Peninsula, the volume of electricity sold increased by 10% compared to the same period last year, a slowdown compared to the 16% registered in the first quarter of 2022.
