Trends in electricity production – December 2021

According to the latest monthly data for the interconnected electricity network from ADMIE (December 2021):
Lignite hit a new record low. Despite the increased demand in 2021 compared to 2020 (+5%) and the spike in fossil gas prices, especially in the second half of 2021, electricity production from lignite decreased by 6.7% in 2021 compared to 2020, while relative to 2019 the decrease almost reached 50% (-49%).
