Hydro and Thermal Production

Get to know the hydro and thermal production in Portugal

In Portugal, EDP Production focuses on asset management and risk management, optimization of operations and maintenance of hydro and thermal production centers. There are more than 60 hydroelectric plants and 4 thermoelectric plants that EDP promotes, dynamizes, and manages, supplying energy to the whole country. 

In accordance with  EDP Group's policy and values of environmental sustainability, 68% of the installed capacity of EDP in Portugal is based on renewable hydro energy, and the remaining 32% is based on conventional thermal power, subject to the most modern technologies in CO2 control and reduction of pollutant emissions.
