Compared with 2012, a growth of electricity consumption was recorded in the agricultural and tertiary sectors, while the industrial and domestic sectors showed a decrease. 

>> In 2013 gross electricity generation recorded a value of 48.1 GWh per ten thousand inhabitants, with a slight decrease in comparison with 2012 (50.3). In the last year a reduction was recorded in all geographical areas, more markedly in the the Centre and  the South and Islands.

>> The share of gross domestic electricity consumption covered by renewable energy sources continues to increase. More specifically, in 2013, the share of gross domestic electricity consumption covered by renewable energy sources in Italy was 33.7 percent  (with an increase of 6.8 percentage points on the previous year). The distribution of renewable energy sources in electricity generation over the country highlights the prevalence of hydroelectricity in mountainous regions and wind power in the South and Islands area, while electricity generation from biomass is notable for being essentially uniform throughout Italy. Toscana is the only region producing geothermal energy.
