Net electricity generation by the Division totaled 29,453 million kWh, a rise of 4,339 million kWh on the previous year (+17.3%). Of the total increase, 2,730 million kWh is attributable to greater generation abroad, mainly due to greater 6 Renewable Energy 54 Enel Annual Report 2013 Report on operations wind generation in the United States and Canada (+1,350 million kWh), the Iberian peninsula (+634 million kWh), Romania (+484 million kWh) and Mexico (+321 million kWh). The increase is essentially due to the entry into service of new plants and, for the Iberian peninsula, more favorable weather conditions. These factors were only partially offset by a decline in hydroelectric generation in Panama (-448 million kWh), which was affected by poor water conditions in that country. Power generation in Italy in 2013 increased by 1,609 million kWh compared with 2012, reflecting an increase in hydroelectric generation (+1,299 million kWh due to more favorable water conditions) and wind power (+205 million kWh).

Total net efficient capacity showed an increase of 882 MW, of which 850 MW outside of Italy. More specifically, the increase in installed wind capacity mainly regards new plants in North America (434 MW), Chile (180 MW) and Spain (84 MW); the rise in geothermal capacity is mainly accounted for by a number of plants in North America (25 MW). Finally, the expansion of net installed capacity in plants powered by other resources reflects the entry into service of a number of solar plants, mainly in Italy, Greece and Romania.
