Supported byClarion Energy banner

Electricity production from variable renewable sources in Southeast Europe fell by 8 percent during the ninth week (February 27 – March 5), to 1.88 TWh, mainly due to less wind production than the previous week.

Wind energy production in the region fell by 12 percent compared to the eighth week, to 1.28 TWh in total. Most markets in the region recorded lower wind power production, with Bulgaria and Hungary recording the biggest declines, by 65 percent and 54 percent, respectively, to 17.4 GWh and 7.1 GWh. On the other hand, the production of wind farms in Greece increased by 7 percent.

The production of solar energy in the region of Southeast Europe recorded a moderate growth of 3 percent, to a total of 594.6 GWh. Most of the countries in the region recorded a higher contribution of solar energy, with the exception of Greece, Bulgaria and Romania, which recorded a decrease in the production of solar power plants by 29 percent, 66 percent, and 25 percent, respectively.

Croatia and Hungary recorded a 6-7 percent increase in solar energy production, mainly due to clear weather in these markets.

Variable renewable generation in Greece was down moderately in the ninth week compared to the eighth week, by 10 percent to 261.9 GWh, mainly due to lower solar radiation.
