Electric power production at the national level improved by 3.1% at the end of the first seven months of 2022, after +6.6% a year earlier, according to the Financial Studies and Forecasts Department (DEPF). .
This performance was driven, in particular, by the strengthening of the production of the National Office for Electricity and Drinking Water (ONEE) by 26.5% (after +10%) and that of renewable energies relating to to Law 13-09 of 7.9% (after +6.3%), mitigated by the decline in private production of 3.7% (after +5.9%), specifies the DEPF in its economic note from September 2022.
Compared to its pre-crisis level (at the end of July 2019), the production of electrical energy increased by 3.1% instead of a virtual stagnation at the end of July 2021, adds the same source.
On the external trade side, the volume of imported energy increased by 117.3% at the end of July 2022, after a decline of 6.7% the previous year. As for the exported volume, it decreased by 23.9% after a 50.7% increase a year earlier. With regard to net called energy, its volume increased by 5.6%, after +6% at the end of July 2021.
Regarding the consumption of electrical energy, it increased by 4.8% at the end of the first seven months of 2022, consolidating an increase of 6.2% last year. This change is attributable to the increase in sales of “Very high, high and medium voltage, excluding distributors” energy by 6.3%, those addressed to distributors by 4.2% and those of 4% low voltage.
Compared to the end of July 2019, the consumption of electrical energy increased by 6.8%, after +1.9% at the end of July 2021.
