Trends in electricity production – November 2021

According to the latest monthly data for the interconnected electricity network from ADMIE (November 2021):
Fossil gas widens its lead over renewables (RES, wind and solar) (19 vs 15.5 TWh), compared to 2020.

Cumulatively the share of renewables (mainly solar and wind) together with large hydro (41%) exceeds that of fossil gas, while the share of lignite remains at low levels (10%)

Electricity from lignite during the 11 months of 2021 is slightly reduced compared to 2020, but vastly reduced compared to 2019 (-48%).
Compared to 2019 lignite production seems to be replaced by renewables (+39%) and fossil gas (+25%).

In November 2021:
Lignite had the second lowest monthly performance in 2021, covering only 7% of the demand
Electricity production from renewables (mainly wind + solar) remained relatively stable covering around 34% of the demand of the interconnected electricity network.

While the gap between renewables and fossil fuels has shrunk in the last 10 years, fossil fuels remain predominant in the country’s electricity mix, during the first 11 months of the year.
