January 14 (Renewables Now) - The clean energy share in Colombia’s power production fell to 78.51% in December from 86.46% as recorded the month before, grid operator XM Compania de Expertos en Mercados said in the latest monthly report.
The lower clean share came after Colombia’s hydropower plants (HPPs), including small run-of-river stations and those with large reservoirs, reduced their combined output by 12.5% month-on-month.
The total clean power production in December dropped by 11.74% month-on-month to an average of 160.01 GWh per day. Power production from non-renewable sources reached 43.79 GWh/day on average, up by 54.18% from November.
