With the coming into service of the Rómulo project and the double submarine link that joins Majorca and Ibiza, the Balearic Islands are interconnected, allowing the electricity system of the Balearic Islands to be operated as a single system that, in turn, is connected to the mainland by a HVDC submarine link from Mallorca. These interconnection links play a very significant role in increasing the safety and quality of electricity supply throughout the archipelago.
Click on the graph of the Balearic Island’s system to consult the overall demand of the islands as a whole, and on any island to consult the specific demand for the island selected.
The graphics incorporate and display data every ten minutes of the actual, scheduled and programmed demand, as well as the maximum and minimum values of the actual daily demand.
Additionally, Red Eléctrica represents the actual daily demand in real time (yellow curve) of each of the islands of the Balearic archipelago. All demand curve graphics also provide information on the different production technologies or generating components necessary to meet demand and also the total CO2 emissions produced by the complete set of generation facilities of the Balearic Islands and the breakdown by energy sources.
Emissions are calculated by associating to each technology the emission factor set out in the Spanish Renewable Energy Plan 2005-2010, in line with European Commission Decision 2007/589/EC.
