August 30 (Renewables Now) - Non-conventional renewables in Chile generated 1,603 GWh gross in July, or 28.4% more than they did a year ago and up by 8.3% month-on-month, Chilean energy commission CNE said in the latest monthly report.
This amount of output corresponds to a 22.5% renewables share in the total gross electricity generation in July. A month ago, the proportion of non-conventional renewables in the total production was 21.8%.
Once data from conventional sources are included, the total gross power production in Chile rose by 10.2% year-over-year to 7,137 GWh.
Figures for renewables are presented in more detail in the table below:
|Technology:||Gross production in GWh:||Month-on-month change:||Year-on-year change:||Share in July:|
|Small run-over-river hydro||150||-13.2%||-18.3%||9.4%|
In July, Chile’s total installed non-conventional renewable energy capacity stood at 7,338 MW, growing from 7,308 in June. Renewables now account for 28.2% of the total generation capacity in the country.
