More electricity from wind in Italy according to statistics

Gross electricity production from Italian wind farms rose 35.8% to 4.034 TWh in 2007, according to the annual report on renewable energy prepared by Gestore dei Servizi Elettrici (GSE), a government agency involved with promoting renewable energy. Despite the positive contribution from wind and most other renewable sources, the percentage of electricity in Italy produced from renewables slipped to 15.7% in 2007 from 16.6% in the previous year. The decline reflects an 11.3% drop in production from hydroelectric plants, by far Italy's most important form of renewable energy, and an increase in overall electricity demand.
