Andalusian energy statistics
The energy scenario of Andalusia has changed in recent years. It is evolving from a centralized generation system based on fossil fuels to a more efficient distributed generation system, which exploits to a great extent the renewable resources and reduces our dependence on foreign energy.
Andalusia records a primary energy consumption of 17,256.4 ktoe, 14.7% of the national total. With an energy supply closely linked to fossil fuels, mainly those derived from oil which cover 45.8% of the total Andalusian energy demand, it presents a high energy dependence from abroad, with imports of almost 77.7% of energy consumption.
The Andalusian electricity mix is based in a 98% on renewable energy sources and natural gas, which represents less than 72% of CO2 emissions per generation unit than the value registered in 2001.
Energy consumption in transport accounts for 37.7% and in industry for 31.8% of the total final energy consumption, estimated at 12,864.1 ktoe.
Active policies together with the regional abundance of autochthonous renewable resources, allows the growing generation of energy from these sources, representing a 22.4% of the primary energy consumption.
The Andalusian electricity generation mix is growing in renewables -with a 51.7% of the total installed power- and consequently in production.
In recent years, energy saving and efficiency policies have intensified, meaning a 15.6% reduction in energy intensity, with respect to 2006.
The Andalusian Energy Agency develops an annual energy statistics balance of these data as reflected in Info-ENERGÍA Statistics.
