Domestic electricity consumption has exploded

Domestic electricity consumption has exploded

Currently, we can see that due to the coronavirus epidemic, the decrease in the annual minimum electricity consumption last year is a thing of the past, as the Hungarian economy begins to grow strongly as a result of responsible government interventions and incentives. One of the main signs of this is that domestic electricity consumption has actually exploded in the first five months of this year.

Data provided by MAVIR shows that in the first five months of this year, from January to May, domestic electricity consumers used approximately 19.6 TWh of total electricity, a value Already nearly 4.5 percent higher than in the same period last year, Despite the fact that 2020 was a leap year. During this period, the import rate was 27 percent, which remains a serious risk to supplies and national security.

Real consumption growth may be even higher in the first five months of this year, as data for home solar modules integrated directly into the system data does not appear. In addition, this is not a small boost, since by the end of 2020, the installed capacity of these home solar power plants has already reached nearly 720 MW.

Figures show that during this period, nearly 50 percent of the domestic electricity production from the Buck continued, According to net data, the Pak Nuclear Power Plant produced approximately 6.6 TWh of electricity. In contrast, industrial scale solar power plants with similar installed capacity are only 0.86 TWh. This also shows that the data that exclusively indicates that the installed capacity of domestic solar power plants has already reached the performance of the Pax nuclear power plant is completely misleading. This is because a nuclear power plant, for example, is able to generate electricity at night, at dawn and in cloudy weather, while solar power plants are not.

This significant increase in electricity consumption indicates that we can expect a significant increase in consumption this year and in the future. In order to meet future needs, primary power plants capable of generating climate-friendly electricity in winter, summer, day, night and every second, regardless of the weather, are urgently needed. Pax II. Two units of the VVER-1200 nuclear power plant serve this purpose, but in addition to this, the construction of additional power plants is required in order to achieve the specified domestic goals. Of course, there is also a need for further development of solar power plants, but it must be realistically evaluated due to the weather and time of day dependence, and it must also be taken into account that this is a heavily subsidized mode of electricity generation.
