Generation of July 2015


The peninsular electricity demand in July, after taking into account calendar effects and temperatures, increased 5.4% over the same month last year. Gross demand was 23,477 GWh, 11.2% higher than in July 2014.

This increase in gross electricity demand responds mainly to a rise in temperatures. Since March 2004, it had not registered a variation of such high growth over the same month last year.

In the first seven months of the year, corrected for calendar effects and temperatures, consumption was 1.2% higher than last year. The gross electricity demand in this period was 146,922 GWh, 3.2% more than in the same period of 2014.

In July, the generation from renewable energy represented 30.7% of production. 49.1% of electricity production for this month came from technologies that do not emit CO2.
