Current Consumption of Energy in Bulgaria is Growing Faster than Production
07 12 2017The electricity consumption continues to grow at a faster pace than that of the production, according to the ESO operating data. Data shows that by the end of November the consumption of electricity increased by 4.2% on an annual basis to 36.3 million megawatt hours.
Meanwhile, production is 41.4 million megawatts, an increase of 1.63% over January - November 2016, Investor.bg said.
The bulk of the electricity produced is distributed on the domestic market. Exports are slightly more than 5.1 million megawatt hours, down 13.4% on an annual basis. Bulgarian traders have failed to overcome the contraction of exports for the second time, although the decline has slowed in recent months.
