Hungarian electricity consumption reached a historic high last night in the cold weather

By RockedBuzz 3 Min Read

The new summit determination, which is a on a system load graph will also be seen, it exceeded the earlier peak (7396 MW) that occurred precisely two years in the past, on January 25, 2022, which exceeded the earlier peak by 35 MW at the time. Two years in the past, the system load peak occurred with a median every day temperature of -2.6 levels Celsius.

MAVIR’s gross verified system load information for the last 24 hours reveals that system load jumped to 7,441 MW in the 15-minute time slot between 17:00 and 17:15 early last night.

THE MAVIR energy mix Another graph of the presentation additionally signifies the system was in a position to steadiness the new historic system load peak with the main manufacturing combine and imports in that quarter of an hour. The Paks Nuclear Power Plant produced at full capability (round 2,027 MW), the Mátra Power Plant produced nearly at full capability, the fuel energy vegetation produced round 1,200 MW, the wind energy vegetation greater than 100 MW, however as a consequence of the sundown and cloudy weather, the solar energy vegetation nothing was produced, and thus the nation needed to import about 3,300 MW, which is extraordinarily high.

This matter may even be mentioned at our convention entitled Corporate Energy Management 2024 on April 11. More particulars at:

MAVIR, by the method issued it additionally last yr’s gross electricity consumption information, which confirmed that consumption fell by 4.5% to 43.7 TWh in addition to the Hungarian financial recession. Hungarian energy vegetation produced 74.6% of this, 32.6 TWh, internet imports amounted to 11.1 TWh, the share of imports thus decreased to 25.4% from 26.5% in 2022 about. In 2022, Hungarian energy vegetation produced 33.6 TWh, the internet import was 12.1 TWh, in response to MTI’s abstract.

In 2023, the highest internet electricity import was in December: it was 1.7 TWh, so the import price was 41%, whereas in the summer season months, as a consequence of the manufacturing of Hungarian solar energy vegetation, the price was solely 15-16%. In the subsequent few days, we’ll current a extra detailed evaluation of the Hungarian electricity consumption and import processes.
