    Red Eléctrica: The demand for electricity in Spain fell by 6.8% in November


    December 4, 2022 - Contify Energy News

     

      The national electricity demand experienced a decrease of 6.8% in November with respect to the same month of the previous year and after discounting the effects of temperature and working hours. In gross terms, a demand of 19,495 GWh is estimated, 9.1% lower than that of November 2021. According to provisional data, in the first eleven months of 2022, once the influence of the calendar and temperatures have been corrected, the demand is 2.8% lower than that registered in the previous year. During this time, the national electricity system has registered a gross demand of 230,264 GWh, 1.8% less than in the same period of 2021.

      Key Highlights:

      * Renewables generated 5.6% more this November than in the same month of 2021 and reached 10,200 GWh, which represents 46.9% of the mix, a participation that they had not achieved since May 2022.

      * On the other On the other hand, 67.3% of the electricity production for the month came from technologies that do not emit CO 2 equivalent.

      * Thus, wind power in November was 6,733 GWh and accounted for 31% of the total, its highest share since December 2020.

      * While photovoltaic solar, with 1,518 GWh recorded this month, increased its production by 12.6% compared to that of last year and obtained a share of 7% of the mix.

      * Hydraulics increased by 16% compared to November 2021, to produce 1,392 GWh.

      Original Press Release:

      November 21, historic day for wind energy

      The wind allowed the wind energy production to reach 416 GWh on Monday, November 21, with which it obtained a share of 52.8% of the total daily energy generated, the highest share of this technology since Red Eléctrica has daily records. In fact, on November 21 at 8:55 p.m., Spanish wind turbines produced 20,607 MW in an instant, setting a new record.

      Peninsular electricity demand

      In the peninsular electricity system, the demand in November was 7.1% lower than in November 2021, taking into account the effects of working hours and temperatures (18,379 GWh, 9.4% less than that registered in the same month 2021 in gross terms).

      In the first eleven months of 2022 and once the influence of working hours and temperature have been corrected, the demand is 3.4% lower than that registered in the same period of the previous year.

      During this month and according to data estimated to date, 48.6% of the peninsular generation was of renewable origin and 70% came from technologies that do not emit CO 2 equivalent. For its part, wind generated 18.9% more than in the same period of the previous year and registered 6,628 GWh, which contributed 32% of the total, while photovoltaic solar, with 7.1% of the mix , It has increased its production by 11.6% compared to November 2021.
