In figures

Throughout 2020, Cofrentes NPP generated 9,247 million kWh, which represents more than 3.7 % of the national energy production and 34 % of the energy consumed in the Valencian Community, which means the supply of more than a third of the energy demand of our Autonomous Community.

The plant has been operating with generator coupled to the energy grid for the 8,784 hours.

The annual production attained by Cofrentes NPP is capable of providing virtually all of the domestic energy consumed by the 2 million households.

Environmentally speaking, the benefits of operation are equally significant, avoiding the emission of approximately 5 million tons of CO2.

Market Contribution

The following graphs represent Cofrentes nuclear power plant’s contribution to energy production of both Spain and its Autonomous Community of Valencia, likewise comparing these contributions with other types of energy production, namely electric, thermal classic and hydraulic.

Spain’s energy production in 2020, when taking into account all possible sources, amounted to 250.387 GWh, of which Cofrentes nuclear power plant’s contribution to electrical energy production makes up 3.6% (9.247 GWh).

The energy production of the Cofrentes nuclear power plant (9.247 GWh) was 16.5% of the total nuclear energy produced in Spain (55,762 GWh), in 2020.The whole of Spanish nuclear power plants sums up at 22.2% of total electricity produced.
