Energy Consumption, a Gaze to the Industrial Production Reduction

Since the pandemic started the Energy division has been monitoring the evolution of the electricity demand and comparing it to the regular patters that were consumed the last year. After implementing different measures of social distancing in different countries, electricity consumption has reduced to different degrees.

First, we observe a dramatic demand drop in some countries (achieving -35% in some weeks); then, a tendency of demand recovery in the last weeks; and, an important correlation between industrial activity and electricity demand changes. As the industrial activity is not quickly recovering, some of the negative impacts on electricity demand will persist.
