As a heatwave swept the nation, Spain’s demand for natural gas for power generation reached a new high, according to transmission system operator Enagas on Thursday.

On Wednesday, 803.8 gigawatt hours (GWh) were delivered to gas-fired power plants in Spain, breaking the previous marks of 770 GWh and 764 GWh set on June 16 and 15, respectively.

According to a statement from Enagas, Spain’s current high temperatures have resulted in higher electricity exports, higher electricity consumption, and lower hydraulic, wind, photovoltaic, and solar thermal generation due to a dusty haze.
