Quoting figures from grid operator Red Eléctrica de España (REE), Foro Nuclear said Spain's nuclear fleet accounted for 6.55% of installed power generation capacity but produced 21.43% of electricity.
One more year, nuclear energy is the largest source of electricity generation in Spain. The seven nuclear reactors produced last year 21.43% of the electricity. Followed by nuclear energy, gas produced 21.22%% of Spain's electricity from 24.20% of installed capacity and wind power generated 30.72% from 23.22% of installed capacity.
In 2019, nuclear production accounted for 36.22% of emissions-free electricity generated in Spain
Foro Nuclear president Ignacio Araluce said that the nuclear sector's performance "represents the availability, reliability, stability and predictability offered by nuclear energy" as it operates continuously and facilitates the proper management of the electric system. He said nuclear power plants do not emit contaminating gasses or particles to the atmosphere. In 2019, nuclear production accounted for 36.22% of emissions-free electricity generated in Spain.
Behind these positive data we can find the demonstrated capacity of the whole of the Spanish nuclear industry present in the maintenance, operation and continuity of the Spanish nuclear power plants, as well as in the international market.
