The Italian electricity system’s balance: the energy required on the national grid to meet net internal consumption (“total load”) is equal to the sum of net electricity produced and electricity imported from abroad, from which energy absorbed by pumping and energy exported are subtracted.

The provisional data is based on Terna’s measurements and estimates and are subject to continuous change. The consolidated data are only to considered definitive after the publication of the “Statistical data on electricity in Italy” annual report. Here available from January 1st 2015 to today.

Numerical data are always presented in English format (N.B. the full stop is used to separate decimals, comma to separate thousands)
