Production

During the first half of 2019, renewable energy sources have represented 55.2% of the electricity production mix in mainland Portugal.

June 2019 registered a renewable incorporation of only 38.5% (1 416 GWh), demonstrating a still strong dependence on imported fossil fuels in periods of the year with scarce wind and water resources.

From January until December of 2018, renewable energy sources accounted for 31.1% of the overall electricity production of the Autonomous Region of Madeira.

From January until December 2018, renewable energy sources accounted for 39% 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.
