This series is a source of overall consumption statistics of energy commodities in all sectors and provides detailed information on production, trade and consumption of electricity, net installed capacity and thermal power plant input and efficiency for selected countries. It provides energy balances for a specific number of developing countries, showing production, trade, conversion and consumption in energy units for all energy products. It also contains electricity profiles for a specific number of countries, providing detailed information on production, trade and consumption of electricity, net installed capacity and thermal power plant input for selected developing and developed countries.

  • Introduction
    The Electricity Profiles 2013 provides detailed information on production, trade and consumption of electricity, on net installed capacity and thermal power plant inputs and efficiency for 227 countries and areas on an internationally comparable basis, for the years 2008-2013. It is published by the United Nations Statistics Division with the aim of providing an overall picture of the electricity sector of such countries and areas.
  • Concepts and definitions
    The electricity profiles intend to provide an overall picture of the electricity sector in countries and areas on a comparable basis. As such, a simplified approach is taken, where for production and capacity the three main electricity sources (or production processes) are singled out; namely, combustible fuels, hydro and nuclear; while the remaining electricity production processes (mostly renewable) are aggregated in the category Other. Detailed information on each source for the same countries and areas is available from the United Nations Energy Statistics Database.
