Electricity production (kWh)Electricity production is measured at the terminals of all alternator sets in a station. In addition to hydropower, coal, oil, gas, and nuclear power generation, it covers generation by geothermal, solar, wind, and tide and wave energy, as well as that from combustible renewables and waste. Production includes the output of electricity plants that are designed to produce electricity only as well as that of combined heat and power plants.
Electricity production from coal sources (kWh)Sources of electricity refer to the inputs used to generate electricity. Coal refers to all coal and brown coal, both primary (including hard coal and lignite-brown coal) and derived fuels (including patent fuel, coke oven coke, gas coke, coke oven gas, and blast furnace gas). Peat is also included in this category.
Electricity production from natural gas sources (kWh)Sources of electricity refer to the inputs used to generate electricity. Gas refers to natural gas but excludes natural gas liquids.
Electricity production from nuclear sources (kWh)Sources of electricity refer to the inputs used to generate electricity. Nuclear power refers to electricity produced by nuclear power plants.
Electricity production from renewable sources (kWh)Electricity production from renewable sources includes hydropower, geothermal, solar, tides, wind, biomass, and biofuels.
Electricity production from oil sources (kWh)Sources of electricity refer to the inputs used to generate electricity. Oil refers to crude oil and petroleum products.
Electricity production from hydroelectric sources (kWh)Sources of electricity refer to the inputs used to generate electricity. Hydropower refers to electricity produced by hydroelectric power plants.
Electricity production from renewable sources, excluding hydroelectric (kWh)Electricity production from renewable sources, excluding hydroelectric, includes geothermal, solar, tides, wind, biomass, and biofuels.
Electric power consumption (kWh)Electric power consumption measures the production of power plants and combined heat and power plants less transmission, distribution, and transformation losses and own use by heat and power plants.
Electric power consumption (kWh per capita)Electric power consumption measures the production of power plants and combined heat and power plants less transmission, distribution, and transformation losses and own use by heat and power plants.
