Installed capacity of units above 1 MW, aggregated per production type

The published data are compiled by RTE by aggregating per production type, the installed capacities of production units of more than 1 MW transmitted by the producers.

The published capacity sum the production units capacities, property of the UFE producers. They do not include the feed in tariffs capacities so far.

These data are updated at least once per year, in the last week of the year.
