In fact, the volume of electricity constantly increased from 2000 to 2008, when it peaked at 319,037.2 gigawatt hours. Thereafter, the consumption oscillated without never going back to the peak level, neither to the lowest value recorded in 2000.

In the same year, the electricity consumed by householders amounted to 65,490.7 gigawatt hours. With reference to electricity production, in 2017, natural gas accounted for 42.34 percent of the total electricity generated , an increase compared to the previous years. On the other hand, the share of renewable sources decreased from 38.85 percent in 2016 to 36.6 percent in 2017.

Energy efficiency among householders
