High power production in October

The production of electricity amounted to 11 821 GWh in October. This is an increase of 1.4 per cent compared with the corresponding month in 2007 and the third highest figure ever recorded for October.

Production, consumption and export surplus of electric energy per month. GWh

Production, consumption and export surplus of electric energy in October. 1993-2008. GWh

Roughly 115 TWh has been produced so far this year; an increase of 2.5 per cent compared with the corresponding period in 2007. The high production in 2008 can be viewed in conjunction with a high inflow to the reservoirs and filling above the median up to September.

Lower consumption of electricity

The consumption of electricity excluding power-intensive manufacturing totalled 6 873 GWh in October; a decrease of 0.3 per cent compared with the corresponding month in 2007. This can be viewed in conjunction with high electricity prices. Households, services and manufacturing other than the power-intensive account for the majority of the consumption. The consumption in power-intensive manufacturing amounted to 2 803 GWh; a fall of 0.6 per cent compared with the corresponding month in 2007.

Seasonally adjusted figures and trend per month. GWh

Seasonally adjusted figures

The current consumption of electricity excluding power-intensive manufacturing increased by 24.9 per cent from September to October. Nevertheless, seasonally adjusted figures were more or less the same. This means that the increase must be viewed in conjunction with normal seasonal variation, especially due to temperature differences between September and October.
