The amount of electricity generated in Latvia in the first five months of 2021 reached 3,086 GWh, 13.1% more than in the corresponding period of the previous year, according to data produced by the Latvian Transmission System Operator AS. high voltage network.
1,690 GWh of this electrical capacity, 3.7% more than in the first five months of last year, was produced by the dam of the Daugava hydroelectric plant. The amount of electricity generated by smaller hydroelectric plants decreased by 20.1% to 37,348 megawatt hours.
The amount of electricity generated by thermal power plants in the first five months reached 872,728 megawatt hours, 71% more than in the same period last year.
The amount of electricity generated by biomass plants in the first five months was 167,914 megawatt hours, 3.1% less than in the corresponding period last year. The volume produced by the thermosolar plants was 133,439 MWh (6.8% less). The amount of electricity produced in biogas plants reached 118,810 megawatt hours, 8.1% less than in the corresponding period last year.
The amount of electricity generated by wind turbines reached 61,436 MWh, 32% less than last year. Solar panel plants produced 805 megawatt hours of electricity, down 2.9%.
The look that I prepared high voltage network It also reveals that electricity consumption in the first five months in Latvia was 3,109 GWh, 2.9% less than last year.
Forecasts also indicate that extreme thermal power plants with significant energy production operated for only a few hours in May, producing a total of 11,785 MWh, which is 10.8 times less than in May 2020. Gas and carbon dioxide emissions carbon, which make production less economically viable.
At the same time, the amount of electricity generated by HPP Daugava reached 80%, despite the decrease in production in absolute terms compared to April 2021.
high voltage network It is an independent Latvian operator of the electricity transmission system.
