The generating Photovoltaic parks commissioned yesterday at 13.00 more than 500 MW of electricity, one of the biggest productions recorded in Romania photovoltaic energy, according to data on the state Transelectrica national energy system.
The solar parks have generated over 7% of the national electricity production. Recent statistics of SEPS shows that the highest value in May for PV energy production was 186 MW, recorded on May 7. In total, the national production of electricity was yesterday at 13.00, the 7232 MW, mostly from hydro sources.
Hydropower now produces 45.49 % of national electricity, a unbroken record from 2005, year in which the production of hydropower was historic. Hydropower produces 3,282 MW on Monday at 13.00. Coal accounts for 28.16 % of the total energy, 2,032 MW and nuclear energy provide 9.58 %, or 691 MW, as one of two nuclear reactors at Cernavoda is stopped. Of hydrocarbons produced 580 MW ( 8.04 % ) and of wind 68 MW (0.94 %). In statistics appear and biomass 57 MW (0.79 %).
Also, export – import balance is 943 MW for export. Statistics on 18 May of SEPS showed that our country has exported 804 MW, nearly four times more than the same day in 2013.
In the first quarter of this year, exports of energy was higher by 395 % compared to the same period in 2013, reaching 1,327 TWh. Final electricity consumption in the same period was 12,994 TWh, down 0.9 % over the corresponding period in 2013.
