Net electricity generated as a whole by the Enel Group in 2013 amounted to 286.1 TWh (-3.0% compared with 294.8 TWh in the previous year) of which 72.9 TWh was in Italy and 213.2 TWh abroad.
Enel Group power plants in Italy generated 72.9 TWh, a decrease of 1.5 TWh compared with 2012. Thermoelectric generation decreased by 7.1 TWh, partly offset by a substantial increase in hydro generation (+5.2 TWh) due to more favourable water conditions in 2013 compared with the previous year.
Electricity demand in Italy in 2013 amounted to 317.1 TWh, down 3.4% compared with 2012. This decrease was attributable to lower net thermal generation (-24.8 TWh), offset in part by an expansion in renewables (+14.4 TWh) and a decline in net electricity imports of 0.9 TWh.
Net electricity generated by the Enel Group outside Italy in 2013 totalled 213.2 TWh, a decline of 7.2 TWh (-3.3%) compared with 2012. The decrease is attributable to a drop in generation in Russia (-2.6 TWh) and by Endesa (-8.1 TWh) particularly in the Iberian peninsula; such a decline was only partly offset by the expansion of output by plants in the Renewable Energy Division (+2.7 TWh). Out of all the power generated by the Enel Group worldwide, 53.2% came from thermoelectric generation, 32.6% from renewables (hydro, wind, geothermal, biomass, cogeneration and solar) and the residual 14.2% from nuclear power.
