Annual Electricity Reports
Consumption down slightly for the year
Total electricity demand had been stabilising for several years, thanks to generally improved demand-side management and despite increased use of electric appliances.
Consumption nonetheless declined slightly year-on-year in 2019, due to generally warmer weather early in the year and to economic growth that was not as robust in 2018, falling to its lowest level in ten years.
Gross consumption ended the year at about 474 TWh, down 1% from a year earlier. This slight decrease was driven by generally milder weather in the early months of the year and economic growth that was not as robust as in 2018.
