Romania’s electricity consumption growth slowed down in October, going up to 3.6 percent after the first 10 months up to 45.3 terawatt/h (TWh), compared with the same period of 2015, an increase supported by the higher demand of the companies, say the data published on Monday by the National Institute of Statistics (INS).

In the first nine months the total energy consumption in Romania registered a more accelerated increase, of 4 percent compared with the same period of 2015 up to 40.9 TWh, after an increase of 9.2 percent in the first seven months. The energy consumption dropped sharply starting from August, when the growth rate decreased to 4.3 percent.

In 2015, the final energy consumption in Romania was 52.56 TWh, a growth by 6 percent compared with 2014 at a total production of 65.6 TWh.

The official statistics show this year that firms increased the energy consumption, while the local authority saved the public lightning and the population consumption grew significantly.

The electricity demand from companies was the one that produced an increase in the market, with a total consumption of 34.91 TWh in the first 10 months, by 4.6 percent higher compared with the same period of 2015.

The energy consumption of individuals grew by 0.4 percent up to 9.94 TWh and the public lightning  consumption dropped by 1.8 percent during January-October period up to 0.47 TWh.

The energy exports from Romania dropped by 19.3 percent in the first 10 months of the year compared with the same period of 2015 up to 6.85 TWh.
