The growth in generation reflects not only the growth in installed capacity but also a top tier operational readiness with 97% average availability of the entire portfolio and an average load factor of 29%, reflecting the premium delivered by EDPR.

In europe, EDPR presented an annual growth of 33%, generating 6.6 GWh of energy output. meanwhile, with an annual growth of 30%, EDPR production in north america was of 7.7 GWh. Finally, in the second year of operations in Brazil, EDPR achieved 31 GWh, which represents an annual growth of 17%.

The balance between the different regions in which EDPR has a footprint shows its diversification strategy. Noteworthy is that in 2010, EDPR started generating energy in Poland and Romania, which represent very attractive markets for future value creation.
