September 14 (Renewables Now) - Colombia’s electricity system produced 86.02% of the nation’s power with clean and renewable sources in August, up from 85.62% that were recorded in July, grid operator XM Compania de Expertos en Mercados has said.
The slightly higher clean share came as large hydropower plants (HPPs) with reservoirs and the so-called non-conventional renewables combined increased production by 0.46% month-on-month to an average of 176.66 GWh per day.
Power production from non-renewable sources fell by 2.8% to 28.70 GWh per day on average.
More details on how the renewables fared in August are presented in the table:
