South Korea’s electricity consumption climbed more than 6 percent in January from a year earlier due to a severe cold wave, data showed Thursday.

Asia’s fourth-largest economy used 49.89 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of power in January, up 6.1 percent from a year ago, according to the data from the Korea Power Exchange.

The exchange said the solid increase resulted from the cold wave and more working days in spite of the business slump caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
