    In 2019 the electricity demand of the national electrical system amounted to 319.6 TWh, slightly down compared to the values recorded in 2018. With regard to Sicily, a region in which ERG is present with its CCGT plant and with wind and photovoltaic installations, demand of approximately 18.9 TWh was recorded during the period, down (-0.7%) compared to 2018, while in the group of regions consisting of Abruzzo-Lazio-Marche-Molise-Umbria, where ERG is active with its hydroelectric plants, the demand for electricity came to 44.7 TWh (+1.5%).

    In the same period, (net) domestic electricity output was 283.8 TWh, up by 1% compared with 2018, whilst the net balance of trades with other countries recorded net imports of 38.2 TWh (-13% compared to 2018). 67% of (net) domestic output was covered by thermoelectric power plants and the remaining 34% by renewable sources; specifically, 18% of this output was from hydroelectric power, 5% from photovoltaic plants, 8% from wind farms and 2% from geothermal sources. Compared to 2018, there was an increase in wind (+14%), photovoltaic (+9%) and thermoelectric (+1%) outputs, while hydroelectric output declined (-6%) along with geothermal (-1%).
