In the first five months of 2021, the amount of electricity generated in Latvia rose to 3,086 gigawatts, an increase of 13.1 percent over the previous year, according to data prepared by Latvian transmission system operator AS. High voltage network.
At 1690 gigawatts of this capacity, 3.7 per cent more than in the first five months of last year, the dam was built by the Dougawa Hydroelectric Power Station. The amount of electricity generated by small hydropower plants fell by 20.1 per cent to 37,348 MW.
The amount of electricity generated by thermal power plants in the first five months reached 872,728 MW, which is 71 per cent more than last year.
The amount of electricity generated by biomass power plants in the first five months was 167,914 MW, which is 3.1 per cent less than the same period last year. Solar power plants generate 133,439 MW (6.8% less). The amount of electricity generated by biogas plants reached 118,810 MW, which is 8.1 per cent less than last year.
The amount of electricity generated by wind turbines is 61,436 MW, which is 32% less than last year. Solar panel plants generated 805 MW of electricity, down 2.9%.
The form I prepared High voltage network Electricity consumption in Latvia for the first five months was 3,109 gigawatts, down 2.9 percent from a year earlier.
Extreme thermal power plants with significant production power are expected to operate for only a few hours in May, generating a total of 11,785 MW, which is 10.8 times lower than in May 2020. Emissions of gas and carbon dioxide make production economically viable.
At the same time, despite the decline in total output compared to April 2021, Doug Gov. HPP’s power generation reached 80%.
