Energy in Uruguay describes energy and electricity production, consumption and import in Uruguay.

Overview[edit]

Historically, energy has been a stronghold of state-owned companies, such as UTE and ANCAP.

The National Directorate of Energy (Spanish: Dirección Nacional de Energía) is the main governmental body in charge of energy policies.[1]

Uruguay is notable for its use of renewable energies, which nowadays provide 94.5% of the country’s electricity and 55% of the country's total energy mix.[2]
