13 November 2009 No Comment

Great heading.
The reality is good and provides a good bench mark.
The wind production from 3 a.m. until 8:30 a.m. covered over 50% of the demand that ranged between 21,700 MW and 19,700 MW.

Later on Sunday, at 2:30 p.m., simultaneous production levels topped out at 11,546 MW–343 MW higher than the previous record achieved on March 5.

Furthermore, in the first nine days of November, wind energy was the primary generation technology of the Spanish electrical grid, reaching 1,770,486 MWh, ahead of the combined cycle with 1,369,955 MWh and the nuclear power with 1,223,350 MWh.

In 2008 wind power met 11.5% of Spain’s electricity demand.
