Technology-specific GO Imports by country

Tuesday, 05 December 2017

In 2017  (Jan-Sep 2017) 264 million GOs were imported by AIB countries. Among the imported GOs, expectedly Hydro GOs represent the bulk (69.4%) of the total GO imports. It is followed by Wind, Biomass, Solar and Geothermal representing 14.0%, 7.8%, 5.8% and 1.7% of total imports respectively. 

In the graph below, technology-specific leanings of individual AIB countries are shown. For example in Netherlands, wind GOs account for 42.6% of total GO imports compared to an average of 14% in AIB countries.

From the graph above, we can find that apart from Netherlands, Ireland and Denmark have a particular affinity towards wind GOs.
