Hydroelectric production in Italy
With regard to hydraulic sources, weather conditions are the main reason for the variations in production. While the size of hydroelectric power plants has slightly increased gradually over the 2007-2016 period, on the contrary, production has undergone significant variations. In 2016, hydroelectricity produced totalled 42,432 GWh, a considerable drop against 2015.
