  • Gas imports have been growing again between 2018 and 2018, especially for the power sector.
  • Electricity prices have been stable since 2014 while gas prices dropped by over 20% since 2014: both are close to the EU average.
  • Energy consumption has slightly decreased since 2017.
  • Portugal aims to strengthen its electricity and gas interconnections to improve its supply security.
  • More than 1 GW worth of new hydropower plants is expected by 2024.

Abstract

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The State Secretary for Energy, under the Ministry of Economy, oversees the national energy policy and supervises the energy sector. The Directorate General for Energy and Geology (DGEG) is responsible for designing, promoting, and evaluating energy policies.

    ERSE, Entidade Reguladora dos Serviços Energéticos,is the electricity and gas regulator.

  • Energy Companies

    Electricity:

    EDP, Energias de Portugal, the former national electric utility, is held by China Three Gorges (CTG) (23.3% since 2011), OPPIDUM (7.2%), CNIC (4.34%), BlackRock (5%), Mubadala (3.15%), and other shareholders. CTG's plan to acquire the remainder of EDP's shares (€3.26/share offer, valuing the group at €9bn) was rejected by the other shareholders.

  • Energy Supply

    Gas:

    Portugal imports all the gas it consumes. Imports decreased by 4.3% in 2019 to 6.1 bcm, of which 92% (5.6 bcm) were from LNG. Imports remained between 4 bcm (2014) and 5 bcm (2016) between 2012 and 2016 until they reached a peak in 2017 at 6.3 bcm.

    In 2019, gas imports came mostly from Nigeria (52%), followed by the US (21%) and Qatar (11%).

  • Energy Prices

    Electricity:

    Electricity tariffs have been stable since 2013 and settled at €11.5c/kWh for industrials and €21.7c/kWh for residential consumers in 2020.

    Electricity prices are close to the EU average.

  • Energy Consumption

    Consumption per capita is 31% lower than the EU average at 2.1 toe, 4 700 kWh of which is electricity (15% below the EU average) (2019).

  • Issues & Prospects

    Electricity:

    REN estimates that power consumption should rise by 0.3%/year between 2016 and 2022. Given this very low growth prospect, several gas power projects have been cancelled.
