W.E.B production results September 2022

10/2022 - Back to overview

Autumn weather in Europe and a hurricane in Canada – monthly production below target
The overall monthly production of 80,677 MWh remained clearly below the defined target.

While September was summery with lots of sunshine in the first half of the month, the second half was defined by mostly cloudy and sometimes rainy weather, in a few regions already with the first frost. The dynamic movement of air masses in mid-September was not enough to compensate for the quiet days dominated by high-pressure conditions. In consequence, the production results in Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Czechia remained below expectations.

In Nova Scotia, the W.E.B plants survived Hurricane Fiona, making landfall with wind speeds in excess of 92 mph (148 km/h), unscathed. Any downtime were almost exclusively caused by large-scale power outages. Also Canada and the United States fell short of the defined target in September.

The photovoltaic power segment experienced mixed conditions in September. The PV production in Austria and the Czech Republic performed better than expected. At the same time, Germany, Italy and the United States could not keep up with production targets.

In the hydroelectric power segment, Austria and Germany remained below target.
