Spain boosts renewables share to 57.4% in Jan

Spain’s renewables generated 13,742 GWh of electrical energy in January, up by 40.9% year-on-year, in response to the most recent preliminary figures launched by Spanish grid operator Purple Electrica de Espana (REE).

It was the very best stage of month-to-month electrical energy manufacturing for renewables since information started, REE mentioned.

The renewables share within the January energy combine was 57.4%, primarily because of push from wind farms. Fixed and reasonable winds enabled wind farms to extend manufacturing by 39.2% year-on-year to 7,537 GWh in January. Photo voltaic PV output rose by 6.3%, whereas hydroelectric vegetation, dried up for months final 12 months, boosted manufacturing by 93.8% in comparison with January 2022, REE mentioned.

Manufacturing particulars for main applied sciences in Spain are introduced within the desk:

Expertise: Share in January 2023: Estimated manufacturing (in GWh): y/y change:
Wind 31.5% 7,537 39.2%
Hydro 16.9% 4,042 93.8%
Photo voltaic PV 7% 1,668 6.3%
Photo voltaic CSP 0.5% 121 -29.0%
Different renewables 1.3% 303 -29.3%
Nuclear 21.2% 5,084 0.7%
Cogeneration 5.1% 1,223 -43.1%
Mixed-cycle 11.2% 2,686 -54.5%
Coal 1.3% 319 -55.1%

Demand for electrical energy throughout Spain’s territory fell by 3% on the 12 months to an estimated 22,052 GWh. Adjusted for temperatures and labour patterns, demand dropped by, nationwide demand dropped by 4.1% in comparison with January final 12 months.
