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.
