Jan 27 (Reuters) - EDP Energias de Portugal SA :

* FY 2015 electricity distribution in Portugal and Spain up 0.5 percent year on year, at 57,560 GWh

* FY 2015 electricity distribution in Brazil down 2.8 percent year on year, at 25,713 GWh

* FY 2015 gas distribution in Portugal and Spain down 37 percent year on year, at 34,000 GWh

* FY 2015 total generation output up by 6 percent, driven by higher thermal generation in Iberia and Brazil, and higher wind generation prompted by capacity additions in Europe and the US, which compensated lower hydro resources in Iberia and Brazil

* Says its installed capacity rose by 8 percent in 2015 (+1.9 GW) to 24.4 GW, benefiting from capacity additions on wind, the full consolidation of Pecem coal plant in Brazil since May, as well as new hydro capacity in Portugal
