Continued fall in electricity production

The production of electricity came to 7 875 GWh in June, a decline of 26.7 per cent compared to the corresponding month last year. The large drop in the consumption in power intensive manufacturing continued in June.

Production, consumption and export surplus of electric energy in June. 1993-2009. GWh

The production of electricity so far this year amounts to 64.2 TWh, a decrease of 11.9 per cent compared to the corresponding period in 2008. The decrease in the power production can be viewed in conjunction with lower inflow of water to the reservoirs and lower filling in 2009. The filling was below the median in all weeks except of week 23 during June and amounted to 59.4 per cent at the end of week 26. The median filling for the corresponding period in the last 17 years has been 67.5 per cent.

All time low consumption of electricity in power intensive manufacturing

The electricity consumption in power intensive manufacturing amounted to 2 027 GWh in June 2009. This is a decline of 27.9 per cent compared to the corresponding month in 2008 and the lowest figure ever recorded for June. So far this year the electricity consumption in power intensive manufacturing has come to 13.7 TWh, a fall of 20.0 per cent compared to the corresponding period in 2008.

Electricity consumption excluding power intensive manufacturing

The electricity consumption excluding power intensive manufacturing amounted to 4 767 GWh in June 2009, a decline of 1.8 per cent compared to the corresponding month in 2008. Households, services and manufacturing other than the power-intensive account for the majority of the consumption.

Net export of power

Norway’s imports of power came to 607 GWh in June, while exports totalled 873 GWh. This gave a net export of 266 GWh. So far this year, Norway has a net export of 1 484 GWh.
