Energetic Behaviour Of Galicia In The Period 2001-2006 Based On The Analysis Of The Energetic Balances


  • Calvo Silvosa, Anxo


The aim of the present paper is to describe the energetic behaviour of Galicia since 2001 up to 2006. In order to analyse the main energetic flows during this six-year time, data from six annual energetic balances are used. This work is divided into four parts. First of all, we deal with primary energy sources to emphasize the great degree of energetic dependence of Galicia on fossil fuels (oil, coal, natural gas…) coming from the outside of its lad. This situation leads the energetic balance to a deficit during the whole period. Secondly, the attention is focused on the effect of energetic transformations developed in Galicia, especially in terms of their performance depending on the origin of the different sources (own and imported). Afterwards, consumption of available energy coming form the different transformations is studied paying attention to where this consumption takes place (inside or outside of Galicia) and the trend of internal consumption during the six-year period analyse. In the last part of this paper we propose a set of conclusions.
