Monthly Electricity Statistics – Data Tools

In China, hydraulic electricity production amounted to 129.6 TWh in May 2022, up 27.3% compared to May 2021 and corresponding to a share of 19.7% in the electricity mix. Since March 2022, the southern regions of the country have been affected by heavy rainfall, filling of dams and increased hydroelectric production. Since the beginning of the year, hydroelectric production has increased by 15.8% or 62.3 TWh compared to the same period last year. Increased hydropower generation has played a key role in helping the country reduce its reliance on coal-fired electricity, which has fallen by 3.3% or 68.3 TWh since the start of the year. In May 2022, the share of coal in the country’s electricity mix fell to 55.1%, a record level for the country.

In Bulgaria, net electricity generation was 3.3 TWh in May 2022, up 8.2% from May 2021. While solar grew 31.0% year-on-year, reaching a record share of 6.9% in the electricity mix, other renewables recorded lower production compared to last year. year, and renewables as a whole fell 19.8% year-on-year. Conversely, production from fuels increased by 27.7% year-on-year, to reach 1.8 TWh. Notably, coal saw a 47.2% year-on-year increase and continues to be the top source of electricity after overtaking nuclear late last year.

In Croatia, net electricity generation decreased by 11.9% year-on-year, amounting to 918.3 GWh in May 2022. Generation from renewable sources, accounting for 62.6% of total electricity generation , fell 37.9% year-on-year. This reduction is mainly due to hydroelectricity, which recorded a decrease of 48.9% year-on-year, also due to the drought that hit Europe. At the same time, production from fuels amounted to 426.6 GWh, up 116.9% year-on-year, with coal and natural gas accounting for 16.2% and 21.3% of production respectively. total electricity.
