January 22 (Renewables Now) - EDP Renovaveis SA (ELI:EDPR) registered 28.5 TWh of renewable power generation in 2020, down by 5% on the year.

The overall decline is mainly a result of the company's sell-down of 1,234 MW in Europe and 137 MW in Brazil, EDPR said.

More details on global generation, in GWh, are available in the table below.
