Monthly Electricity Statistics

The latest IEA’s Monthly Electricity Statistics report including August 2022 data shows that for Total OECD:  

Total net electricity production was 972.9 TWh in August 2022, relatively unchanged (+0.6% y-o-y) compared to August 2021.

Electricity production from renewable sources increased by 2.4% y-o-y at 282.6 TWh. Lower electricity production from hydro (-0.4% y-o-y) and wind (-8.6% y-o-y) was compensated by strong solar power output, which grew by 23.4% y-o-y at 63.9 TWh. Overall, the share of renewables in the OECD electricity mix settled at 29.0%.  

Nuclear electricity production dropped by 7.7% y-o-y at 144.1 TWh, confirming the trend observed during previous months. This decrease was mainly driven by OECD Europe (-22.0% y-o-y), followed by the OECD Americas (-1.1% y-o-y) and it was only partly mitigated by increased nuclear electricity production in OECD Asia-Oceania (+9.8% y-o-y).  

Electricity production from combustible fuels amounted to 572.6 TWh, up by 2.5% or 14.0 TWh compared to the same month last year. Generation from natural gas continued the upward trend (+8.9% y-o-y), with increases registered across all OECD regions, while coal power production dropped by 6.0% y-o-y, driven by a sharp decrease in the OECD Americas. Overall, the share of combustible fuels in the OECD electricity mix was 58.9%.
