2022 yearly report

With what was one of the worst droughts in Europe leading to a decrease in energy produced from hydro sources, renewable energy production still increased. Wind and solar had an increase of 34,7 TWh and 31,9 TWh respectively.

Nuclear production was down 118 TWh due to the drought and maintenance. France accounts for 71% of that reduction, with half the plants being offline to maintenance and other issues. Even so, from the total production from the countries listed bellow, the main energy source was nuclear with 22.9% share, followed by coal (17.3%), hydro (16,9%) natural gas (15,9%) and wind (14,9%) closes the top 5.

Half of the countries in this report decreased their emissions compared to 2021, the most notable were Latvia, Lithuania and Denmark.
