According to REN, until June, photovoltaic production supplied 7% of electricity consumption and biomass 6%, while natural gas production accounted for 19% and the remaining 20% corresponded to the import balance.
"In the semester's total, the hydroelectric productivity index registered 0.79 (historical average of 1), the wind productivity index 0.92 and the solar productivity index 1.07".
In the first six months of the year, electricity consumption was "in line with that seen in the same period of the previous year", presenting a reduction of 0.3%, considering the effects of temperature and working days.
Analyzing only the month of June, electricity consumption recorded a year-on-year growth of 0.5%, driven by above-average temperatures. Adjusting for the effects of temperature and the number of working days, it fell by 1.3%.
In June, the hydroelectric regime was more favourable, registering 1.11 (historical average of 1), while in wind and photovoltaic conditions there were conditions below the average regimes, with the indices registering 0.81 and 0.97, respectively.
