Hungary reports on power consumption in 2003

Jan 13, 2004 01:00 AM

Power consumption in Hungary last year was 40.6 TWh, 2.2 % higher than in the previous year, according to preliminary figures published by independent system operator Mavir. The rate of increase is double the 1 % rise registered in 2002.
Consumption was boosted especially by power usage during the summer, when, mainly due to the proliferation of air conditioners, usage was 3 % higher on average than in the same period of 2002. Mavir said it expects power consumption to grow by a further 1.9 % this year.

The amount of imported electricity is expected to increase in 2004, while transit traffic will likely decline. The gross power production of power plants in Hungary last year was 33.7 TWh, while the balance of export-import trade was 6.9 TWh.
Domestic production is expected to rise slightly this year as more mini-plants are set up, and a new 110 MW block is put on line at the Kispest Power Plant.
