Electricity Generation

Aggregated net power generation decreased by just more than 1% across EU 28, from 3,136 TWh in 2012 to 3,101 TWh in 2013, following the same trend as power demand. Low-carbon technologies accounted for more than half of total net generation for the second consecutive year, as RES generation continued to increase and fossil fuel fired generation further steeply decreased. Nuclear production, like overall generation, was stable.
