Energy balance for the last 8 months – Production was dominated by public HPPs, losses in the distribution network fall
About 3.7 million mwh of energy were produced during the first 8 months of this year, while the hydropower plants of the Drini Cascade dominated the production with 56.2% of the total amount. The data differ from those of the 6-month period, where the production was realized at the rate of 52% by private and concessionary HPPs, but during July and August the Albanian Electric Power Corporation has increased the production, changing the ratios.
According to data reported by the Energy Regulatory Authority, public hydropower plants produced about 2 million mwh of energy, while in March this year began production and hydropower plant of Moglica, generating for the 6-month period 78 thousand mwh of energy or 2.1% of total. At the same time, the production of energy from photovoltaic power plants has continued, although the amount generated is extremely low in relation to the energy produced from hydro sources.
In total these plants produced 23,471 mwh of energy, indicating that the diversification of energy production sources is still far away, as long as the 2 projects for the construction of photovoltaic parks in Karavasta and Akërni have not started yet. Meanwhile, the level of losses in the distribution network for the 8-month period reached 21.48%, marking an improvement compared to the same period last year, where losses were estimated at 22.82%.
