Electric Balance 2016

17 May 2017

From the analysis of the data provided by REE and establishing a comparison between the last year (2016) and the previous year (2015) we observe that a strong decrease in the use of coal

Corresponds to relatively proportional growth of the contribution of nuclear and The hydraulics. The rest of the sources remain practically at the levels of the previous year.

Contribution of photovoltaic to peninsular energy balance (1991-2016)

If we examine the extent to which photovoltaic energy contributes to the generation of the national energy balance in the last decades, we can see in the table above that it is practically minimal during the last decade of the last century, but that from 2006 a Stabilizes in the last 6-7 years very close to 8000 GW. These figures show the commitment of this energy to contribute to the achievement of the European 20-20-20 target for 2020: Reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 20%. Savings by increasing efficiency of energy consumption by 20%. Promotion of renewables up to 20%.
