Production

The year 2019 started with a renewable contribution to the production of electricity of 54.4%, corresponding to the production of 2,619 GWh, for a total of 4,815 GWh.

The renewable production was slightly higher in January than in the past two years, reflecting an increase in water and wind production.

From January until June of 2018, renewable energy sources accounted for 38.6 % (161 GWh) of the overall electricity production of the Autonomous Region of Madeira.

From January until June, renewable energy sources accounted for 41.3 % (158 GWh) of the overall electricity production of the Autonomous Region of Azores.

The greater use of Portuguese endogenous and renewable resources for the production of electricity has altered the composition of the electricity production mix in Portugal and has, consecutively, played an increasingly important role in the satisfaction of consumption.
