Italy: electricity production from renewables (2014)

Since 2008, production from renewable sources has each year set new records. In 2013, it reached a new record level of 120.7 TWh. Hydropower represented the source that provided the greatest contribution to the production of electricity: with 58.5 TWh it accounted for 49% of the total production from renewable sources, setting a production record. While up to 2008 the trend of electricity generated from renewable sources was mainly driven by the hydro source, in recent years the importance of “new renewables” (solar, wind and bioenergy) has increased, which in 2014 accounted for 51% of national electricity production from renewable sources.
