Renewable energy generated 40.8% of electricity in Spain until July

The wind energy produced 20.3% of electricity until July 2015, 2.4% solar thermal and photovoltaic solar energy 3.3%.

Generation from January to July 2015

In July the renewable energy generated 30,7,8% of electricity in Spain: wind power produced 12.9%, 3.8% solar thermal and photovoltaic solar energy 3.7%.

Generation of July 2015

The peninsular electricity demand in July, after taking into account calendar effects and temperatures, increased 5.4% over the same month last year. Gross demand was 23,477 GWh, 11.2% higher than in July 2014.

This increase in gross electricity demand responds mainly to a rise in temperatures. Since March 2004, it had not registered a variation of such high growth over the same month last year.

In the first seven months of the year, corrected for calendar effects and temperatures, consumption was 1.2% higher than last year. The gross electricity demand in this period was 146,922 GWh, 3.2% more than in the same period of 2014.

In July, the generation from renewable energy represented 30.7% of production. 49.1% of electricity production for this month came from technologies that do not emit CO2.
