October 12 (Renewables Now) - EDP Renovaveis SA's (ELI:EDPR) total renewable power generation in the first nine months of 2020 decreased by 7% year-on-year to 20.4 TWh.

According to the report released by the company last week, the decline came because of lower installed capacity following the execution of EDPR’s deconsolidation plans. The company has sold 997 MW in Europe and 137 MW in Brazil in the last year.

Among the firm's markets, the most significant decrease was registered in Brazil, where EDPR's generation was down by 38% to 785 GWh. The US and Canada were the only markets to show growth.
